Third Sunday of Pentecost         Jun 25, 2017

Welcome in the name of the Risen Lord Jesus Christ. If you are visiting, we are glad that you are here and kindly ask that you sign our guest book at the sanctuary doors. If you would like to become a member please speak to the Pastor. In case of illness, the Pastor should be informed. He will always be glad to speak with those who are confronted with problems of a spiritual nature. The time before worship is a quiet time for prayer and meditation to prepare for worship. Please see the inside cover of the hymnal for prayers and page 329f to prepare for Holy Communion. Communicant members are asked to fill out a communion card found in the pew racks and place it in the offering plates.

Collect of the Day

O God, because Your abiding presence always goes with us, keep us aware of Your daily mercies that we may live secure and content in Your eternal love; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, Our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

Introit (sung responsively by half-verse)

 

For you have delivered my soul from death, yes my feet from | falling,*

that I may walk before God in the | light of life.

 

When I | am afraid,*

I put my | trust in you.

 

In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not | be afraid.*

          What can flesh | do to me?

 

In God, whose | word I praise,*

     in the Lord, whose | word I praise,

 

in God I trust; I shall not | be afraid.*

     What can man | do to me?

 

Glory be to the Father and | to the Son

     and to the Holy | Spirit;

 

as it was in the be- | ginning,

     is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

 

For you have delivered my soul from death, yes my feet from | falling,*

that I may walk before God in the | light of life.

Holy Communion:

Since the Lord’s Supper gives the forgiveness of sins in the body and blood of Christ to all who believe the words “given and shed” and is also a celebration of oneness in faith, we ask that only those who have professed such faith publicly in a Lutheran Church-Canada (or Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod) congregation come to the Lord’s Altar.  Everyone intending to commune for the first time is kindly asked to speak with the Pastor prior to the service.

​​​PRAYER CHAIN:  Paula, our Evangelism Team Leader, has restarted the prayer chain for anyone who is in need of help.  Once a request is either brought to her and/or from Pastor, she will call the prayer chain members, who will only have knowledge of a person in need of support and prayers. All will be confidential, unless otherwise instructed by you. Please call, we’re here for you. Paula
