THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Isaiah 55:10–13; 2 Cor 11:19–12:9; Luke 8:4–15.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . The people of Israel contended with the Lord in the wilderness (Ex. 17:1–7). They were dissatisfied with His provision. In the same way, the first laborers in the vineyard complained against the landowner for the wage he provided them (Matt. 20:1–16). They charged him with being unfair, but in reality he was being generous. For the Lord does not wish to deal with us on the basis of what we deserve but on the basis of His abounding grace in Christ. The first—those who rely on their own merits—will be last. “For they were overthrown in the wilderness” (1 Cor. 10:5). But the last, those who rely on Christ, will be first. For Christ is the Rock (1 Cor. 9:24–10:5). He is the One who was struck and from whose side blood and water flowed that we may be cleansed of our sin.

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . 1 Corinthians 9:25 “Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.” Self control is a fruit of the Spirit – for the desires of the flesh are at war with the desires of the Spirit. Having received the new life in Christ by his grace, he now calls us to follow him deliberately, with self-control, with intention.

THE ALTAR FLOWERS . . . were given by Matthew & Terra Waldrop to the glory of God on the occasion of Trey’s Birthday.

A NEW ADULT INFORMATION CLASS . . . will begin Sunday, February 16, 4:00 pm. All the main teachings of the Bible will be studied. If you know of someone who is interested in this class, perhaps a husband or wife, a neighbor, or someone from work, please invite them to attend. If you have not attended since confirmation or when you became a member, please consider joining us for some rewarding Bible study. For more information, contact Pastor.

ANNIVERSARY COMMITTEE . . . Immanuel will be celebrating it’s 125 anniversary in 2022. We are looking for volunteers to serve on the Anniversary Committee. If you are interested in helping our church celebrate its 125 anniversary, please contact Pastor Braaten.

LUTHERANS FOR LIFE ESSAY CONTEST . . . For more information see the announcement on the bulletin board and ask Pastor for detailed instructions.
