THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Genesis 28:10–17; Ephesians 4:22–28; Matthew 9:1–8.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . The Pharisees ask a Law question. Jesus asks a Gospel question. The Pharisees seek to test Jesus in His own words. Jesus seeks to “test” them in the saving reality of who He is as the Messiah (Matt. 22:34–46). The Law requires you to “fear the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul” and to “love the sojouner” (Deut. 10:12–21). Failure to keep the Law perfectly brings judgment. On the other hand, the Gospel brings the grace of God given by Jesus Christ, that you may be blameless in the day of His return (1 Cor. 1:1–9). Jesus is David’s Son yet David’s Lord, true God and true man. He is Love incarnate who fulfilled all the demands of God’s Law on our behalf, that we might be saved from the Law’s condemnation and sanctified in the Gospel’s forgiveness. Thereby we see that “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Cor. 1:9).

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . Matthew 22:40 “On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” We serve God and our neighbor through the various vocations (holy callings) that God has given us. We do not need to go searching for or inventing good works: God has given us roles to fill in Home, Church, and Society and when we work hard at them as faithful Christians, God-pleasing works are the result.

ALTAR FLOWERS . . . are given by Craig & Carol Munson to the glory of God in thanksgiving for blessings received.

THERE ARE STILL . . . openings to put flowers on the Altar. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the hallway by the sanctuary or call the church office. Flowers are $30.00 and can be special ordered. Flowers can be taken home after the Sunday’s service.

BI-MONTHLY MISSION . . . is Sunday, October 4, LWML Sunday. All loose cash in the offering will go to support Immanuel’s LWML Chapter. For more information about the LWML and how it serves the church and the community, or to inquire about how you can join, speak with Joyce Alexander, Irene Wattjes, or Lauren Braaten. The ladies of the LWML also invite everyone to the Fellowship Hall after the Divine Service for hot apple cider and homemade cookies to thank you for your ongoing support.

LADIES BUNCO NIGHT . . . Attention ladies of all ages: You are invited to a night of fun and games. Join the ladies of Immanuel at the parsonage, 6:30 pm–8:30 pm, for Bunco! If you’ve never played, don’t worry. The game is easy to learn and fun to play. Please bring a dessert or appetizer to share and be prepared to have a great time. If you have questions please talk to Celeste Nau, Jaimee Whitson or Lauren Braaten.

VOTERS’ ASSEMBLY MEETING . . . is scheduled for Monday, October 19, 7:30 pm, in the Fellowship Hall.
