We welcome all who are worshiping today.  We greet you in the love and joy of Jesus Christ.

We pray that through our worship today, you will know the forgiveness and peace that God offers to us by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

If you do not have a church home, we pray that you will consider joining us here at Trinity or Zion.

A Matter of Spiritual Care:  We are happy to invite members of other Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod congregations to commune with us when they visit. The Lord’s Supper is celebrated at Trinity & Zion in the confession and glad confidence that our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but also His very body and blood for the forgiveness of sins.

 

 

In our prayers this morning, and throughout the week, we remember:

The family of Cyrus L. Keller, Jr.. Cyrus passed away on July 5, 2017.

May God grant his family comfort and peace.

 

Our shut-ins and home bound members:  Edwin, and Nadine.

 

Those sick, ill or with health concerns: Jason, Kelly, Everett, Susan, Wilma, Deb, Pastor Jim Rivett, Iona, and Oetta.

 

 

About the Cover:  When a child gets tired and needs help, there is usually someone nearby to assist. He reaches down and lovingly gathers the tired and weak child into his arms and carries her, at least until the child is rested. Jesus promises that for us also. He gathers us and our burdens and lets us rest, that we may continue in Him. For in Him, we find true rest from this world’s labor and burdens.

 

 

Luther Sermon Excerpt:  He sees that we are captives of death; but he is merciful and gives us life. He sees that we are the children of hell; but he is merciful and gives us heaven. He sees that we are poor, naked and exposed, hungry and thirsty; but he is merciful, and clothes, feeds and gives us to drink, and satisfies us with all good things. Thus, whatever we have for the body or spirit, he gives us out of mercy, and pours his blessings over us and into us. Therefore Christ says here: Imitate your Father and be also merciful, as he is merciful.

 

 

Next Week’s Worship:  The Scripture Readings for next Sunday, Sixth Sunday after Pentecost, are:  Isaiah 55:10-13, Romans 8:12-17, Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23.

 

 

Stewardship Thought:  “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Jesus has come to do the work so that we might have rest from burdens and labors we are not capable of bearing. He frees us from sin, death, and the demands of the Law. In that peace and rest of Jesus we find a new purpose – His light yoke which is no burden to bear, but a joy!  (Matthew 11:28)

 


Lectionary Comic for This Week’s First Reading:

When I lose my way,

And I forget my name

Remind me who I am

In the mirror all I see

Is who I don't wanna be

Remind me who I am

Tell me, once again who I am to You, who I am to You

Tell me, lest I forget Who I am to You, that I belong to You, to You
