THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Genesis 4:1–15; 1 Cor 15:1–10; Luke 18:9–14.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . Our Lord wept over Jerusalem for the destruction that would soon come upon her. For she did not recognize the time of God’s visitation in Christ, who had come to bring her peace (Luke 19:41–48). Through His prophets God had consistently called His people to turn from their deceit and false worship. “But My people do not know the judgments of the Lord” (Jer. 8:4–12). They sought to establish their own righteousness rather than receive Christ’s righteousness through faith (Rom. 9:30–10:4). So it was that God was in His temple to cleanse it, a precursor to the once-for-all cleansing from sin which He would accomplish in the temple of His own body on the cross. God grant us to know the things that make for our peace—His visitation in the Word and Sacraments—that by the Holy Spirit we may penitently confess “Jesus is Lord” (1 Cor. 12:1–11).

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Here is the key to faithful stewardship—and a faithful life in general! God’s Law is not given to us to hamper our fun, but to show us God’s own wisdom. All things being equal, won’t a life lived in accordance with God’s Word be more fulfilling and satisfying than a life lived at odds with God’s Word? Doesn’t He know better than we?

THE ALTAR FLOWERS . . . are given by Ron & Judy Legg to the glory of God on the occasion of their wedding anniversary.

POTLUCK TODAY FOR HAYDEN FOLKS . . . immediately following Bible Class. In addition, Hayden will be preaching during today’s (Sunday) Divine Service. Plan to attend the Divine Service, Bible Class, and the potluck to learn more about both Hayden and his wife Natanya!

PASTOR WILL BE AWAY. . . August 2–4. If you have an emergency you may contact Pastor Braaten on his mobile phone or call one of the Elders (Ronald Legg, Greg Nau, Bryce Reifsteck, Mark Whitson).

BI-MONTHLY MISSION . . . will be August 7. All loose cash in the offering will go to SAM Pantry.

MARK YOU CALENDARS . . . for August 21, 3:00—6:00 pm!  The Board of Missions and Evangelism and the Men’s Club will be hosting the annual Immanuel Church picnic.

PEACE MEALS . . . August is Immanuel’s month to deliver Peace Meals. Peace Meals delivers Monday–Thursday, beginning at 11:00 am. Team up with someone from church to help get these low-cost, nutritious meals to those in need. Please contact Roger & Wanda Long to volunteer.

CAMP CILCA GOLF OUTING . . . is Friday, September 23, 2016, at The Rail in Springfield. You can form a foursome or go and be added to a team. Check-in is at 11:30 am; Shotgun starts at 12:30 pm.
