THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Deuteronomy 10:12–21; 1 Corinthians 1:1–9; Matthew 22:34–46.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . “Do not put yourself forward in the king’s presence” (Prov. 25:6–14). Rather, take the lowest position at the table. Humble yourself before Him. For your place is not for you to take but for Him to give. Conduct yourself with all lowliness and gentleness, bearing with one another in love (Eph. 4:1–6), that the King may give you glory in the presence of those at the table with you. “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted” (Luke 14:1–11). Is this not the way of Christ? He is the one who took the lowest place, who humbled Himself even to the point of death for us. He is now exalted to the highest place at the right hand of the Father that penitent believers may be exalted together with Him in the resurrection. To the humble at His Supper He says, “Friend, move up higher,” giving you His very body and blood for your forgiveness that you may ascend to take part in the great wedding feast which has no end.

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . Luke 14:11 “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” The Kingdom of God is always like this. We must die in baptism in order to truly live. We must be humbled so that we can be exalted. And when we give away, we receive much more than we bargained for: peace of mind, contentment, joy.

ALTAR FLOWERS . . . are given by Josh & Jaimee Whitson to the glory of God on the occasion of their wedding anniversary.

SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS NEEDED . . . We are still in need of one teacher for the 4th–6th grade class. If this position is not filled those grades will not have Sunday School.

PASTOR WILL BE AWAY . . . for a meeting in Kewanee, Illinois, during the day on Monday, October 13. If you have an emergency or need to get in touch with Pastor Braaten, you may call his mobile phone, or contact one of the Elders.

THE YOUTH GROUP EVENT . . . for October is set for Sunday, October 26, 4:00 pm—6:00 pm. We will be joining the Youth Group from Grace Lutheran Church, Paris, Illinois, for some hiking and games at their park facilities. We will be leaving the church at 2:45 pm and we will be back home no later than 8:00 pm. Please notify Pastor Braaten by e-mail that you plan to attend by Monday, October 20.
