WELCOME VISITORS - We are honored to have you worship with us today! Please wear a maskif you wish. RESTROOMS are off the lounge to the right (south side) of the main entrance. When leaving the pews, they will be on your left. The tower stairs (to your right while leaving the pews) lead down to the basement where there are another pair of restrooms. Feel free to use the LOUNGE if you or your children need a break. Since the Sacrament of Communion is administered to those instructed and examined in the Faith as Confessional Lutherans understand it, you will receive a verbal blessing unless you speak with Pastor beforehand. Families with young children are always welcome to worship with us. Feel free to take a quiet bag with coloring pages and crayons to your seat, found hanging in the coat closet. Wednesday Worship in Lent is our extra sacrifice of time devoted to prayer and God’s message. We meet at 7pm this Wednesday for evening prayer (a.k.a. Vespers). The sermon is based on Lamentations “Jeremiah foresaw the cross.” This week on Martin Luther’s Evening Prayer, Dr. Zeile’s message is based on Matthew 22 “Give to Caesar.” Tune in Sundays at 6pm on AM 560 and/or Mondays at 8pm on AM 1440. The message is broadcast on 7 additional stations coast to coast. BUZZSPROUT – Other messages from Martin Luther’s Evening Prayer are also available anytime as a podcast found at: www.buzzsprout.com/34718 . This WEEK, we are resuming international broadcasting via WRMI Miami 77.30 mghz. Which missed a week due to damage from Hurricane Ian. Youth Lock-In is scheduled for April 13-14th in the school gym. All grade school youth are invited to attend this all night of fun, fellowship, and Bible Study. This event is for youth in grades 3-8, but High School Helpers are welcome to attend (and can count as service hours!) Cost is $5 per person to cover some basic costs. Youth should bring a Bible, basic toiletries, sleeping bag, and something to cover their feet for the night. Youth are encouraged to bring a friend! Please direct any questions about this event to Katie Bauer – See flyer for permission slip. Individual Confession and Absolution Lent is an appropriate time for you to examine your conscience and make an oral confession of sins that trouble you, and/or aware to the pastor for specific forgiveness. Of course, spiritual counsel and prayer are available, also! Note: Pastor’s hours on Wednesday of Holy Week are (6-7, 8-9p ) before and after Stations of the Cross Devotions. You can also make an appointment any time in the year with Pastor. Stewardship ThoughtHebrews 9:12 – “He entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption.” The only price that could redeem us was the very blood of the Christ. This is the only sacrifice of true worth. His sacrificial giving sets the pattern for our life, for how can we who are redeemed by the self-giving of God not also give of ourselves to His kingdom? Zoom Bible Study meets tonight, March 26th at 7pm and continues with Acts 23 “paul plays politics.” Email Pastor Zeile for the link to participate.
