THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Ezekiel 34:11–16; 1 Peter 2:21–25; John 10:11–16.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . “For there are three that testify: the Spirit and the water and the blood” (1 John 5:7). These three point to Christ and flow from Christ. Jesus shows His disciples His hands and side, from which blood and water flowed, saying “Peace be with you.” He presents the wounds which turn our fear to gladness and which restore us to the Father. Jesus breathes on His disciples and says, “Receive the Holy Spirit” (John 20:23). His breath, His words are Spirit and life. They raise up our dry, dead bones and give us new and everlasting life (Ezek. 37:1–14). Christ now gives His ministers to speak His forgiving, Spirit-filled words to the penitent in His stead. Our Lord continues to come to His people, presenting His wounds to us in the Sacraments of water and blood. He bids us to touch His side at His table, to receive His risen body and blood in true faith, that believing we may have life in His name.

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . John 20:19 “Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’” The peace we have in Jesus is what makes a life of good works possible. Since we know that it is Jesus who saved us, and not our works, we are now free to do good works not out of self-interest, but for the right reasons: out of thanksgiving toward God and love for our neighbors.

THE FLOWERS ON THE ALTAR . . . are given by Kenny & Tammy Kresin to the glory of God on the occasion of their wedding anniversary.

THANK YOU . . . to everyone who purchased a lily to beautify the sanctuary during Easter. Lilies left after the Easter services can be found in the kitchen.

ANNUAL HAM DINNER . . . St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Dorans is hosting their annual Ham Dinner following their 10:00 am service on April 28. The menu is posted on the bulletin board.

PASTOR RICK MILAS . . . of University Lutheran Church & Student Center, announced he is retiring July 28, 2019.

APPLICATIONS FOR THE ILC COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIP . . . sponsored by the Board of Missions and Evangelism are now being accepted. The deadline is June 1, 2019. Applications are available on the church Web site: immanueltuscola.org.
