THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Daniel 7:9–14; 2 Peter 3:3–18; Matthew 25:31–46.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . “A great multitude from all tribes and peoples and languages,” cry out “salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne” (Rev. 7:9–17). Faith-filled saints from every place and time with unified voices eternally magnify the Lamb of God. As His beloved children, we too, “shall see him as he is” (1 John 3:1–3). Joined with the throng of angels and a myriad of saints, we shall “serve him day and night in his temple” (Rev. 7:9–17). In our earthly tension vacillating between saint and sinner, faith and doubt, sacred and profane, we earnestly seek Jesus to calm our fears, comfort our spirits, and forgive our sins. The Holy Spirit, through faith in Christ propels us forward, fortifying us in Word and Sacrament, to our eternal home. In the midst of our constant struggle as believers, we need to be blessed. And so we are. The poor in spirit, the meek, the hungry, the thirsty, the merciful, the pure, and the persecuted are all blessed and we will most certainly inherit the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 5:1–12).

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . Matthew 5:7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” This is one of many Bible passages that remind us that we reap what we sow. Likewise, what God puts into us (His own love, mercy, kindness, and generosity)—flows back out of us. For it all starts with His self-giving!

ALTAR FLOWERS . . . are given by Kenny & Tammy Kresin to the glory of God for blessings received.

SPECIAL OFFERING THIS WEEKEND . . . An offering plate is located in the back of the church for a special offering going to Lutherans For Life (LFL). LFL provides various media to equip Lutherans to be Gospel-motivated voices for life. Immanuel’s Board of Missions and Evangelism will provide matching funds up to $200.

AT CAMP CILCA . . . you can enjoy the time to scrap (or craft – jewelry making, quilting etc.) or perhaps a walk in the outdoors with no laundry, cleaning or cooking!  This camp is from Friday, November 11 at 7pm to Sunday, November 13 at 2pm.  4 meals will be provided at the Christian Growth Center.  Cost is $80 (based on double occupancy).  For questions or reservations, please contact Barb Knake (309) 643-3941 or bknake123@yahoo.com.
