THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

NEXT WEEK’S READINGS . . . Exodus 20:1–17; Romans 6:3–11; Matthew 5:20–26.

ABOUT THIS WEEK’S READINGS . . . The Lord called fishermen to be fishers of men (Luke 5:1–11). The net they would use is the message of the cross, which is foolishness and a stumbling block to the world (1 Cor. 1:18–25). The power of God to save is not in spectacular signs like wind and fire and earthquakes (1 Kings 19:11–21), nor is it to be found in human intelligence and wisdom. The power of God to save comes in the still, small voice of the preaching of Christ crucified. In worldly darkness the disciples could catch nothing. But in the light of Christ, whose Word was attached to the water, the boats were filled with fish. So it is that in Baptism you have been drawn in to the ship of the Church. Though the nets are breaking and some who hear the Word do not believe, pastors continue to cast the net of the Gospel and the Sacraments, that Christians may abide in the boat of the Church and that we may be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks a reason for the hope that is in us (1 Peter 3:8–15).

THOUGHTS ABOUT STEWARDSHIP . . . Luke 5:5 “And Simon answered, ‘Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.’” All our toil, all our work, all our efforts mean nothing without the Lord’s guidance. But if we walk in the Word of Jesus . . . well, look what happened to Simon Peter!

THE ALTAR FLOWERS . . . are given by Bryce & Deborah Reifsteck to the glory of God on the occasion of their wedding anniversary.

IMMANUEL YOUTH GROUP . . . is scheduled to meet here at church today, June 26, at 6:00 pm to travel to Lake Fork Sportsman’s Club north of Atwood as guests of Jack Appleby. Youth Group is open to those entering 8th grade and to those in high school. Please let Pastor know if you are coming this evening.

TUSCOLA’S SPARKS IN THE PARK PARADE . . . We are asking for volunteers to walk in the parade with our church banner and pass out popsicles and pencils. The parade is Saturday, July 9, at 10:00 am. Line-up begins at 9:30 am in Ervin Park. There is a signup sheet in the Narthex for all who are interested. Come and join us!

LAW AND GOSPEL . . . on your Lutheran Radio Station Worldwide KFUO.org. Learn about two completely different Biblical teachings on your Lutheran Radio Station Worldwide KFUO.org. Law and Gospel uses the theological distinctions between Law and Gospel not only to apply the Bible, but also to understand our relationship to God’s entire plan of salvation in Christ. Monday-Friday @ 9:30 am Central Time. Archived at KFUO.org. Follow us on Facebook.com/KFUOradio.

CAMP CILCA . . . is looking for donations to auction off at the 2016 Chicken Fry and Auction on Sunday, September 4. If you would like to donate an item for auction please contact the camp office at 217-487-7497. Thank you in advance for your continued support!
