Fifth Sunday after Pentecost July 14, 2019
Song “Father Welcomes” LSB 605 Baptism of Charlie Michelle Coffin Song “Hallelujah (Your Love is Amazing)” (see video screens) Salutation and Collect of the Day P The Lord be with you. C And also with you. P Let us pray. Lord Jesus Christ, in Your deep compassion You rescue us from whatever may hurt us. Teach us to love You above all things and to love our neighbors as ourselves; for You live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. C Amen. Old Testament P C
Joshua 9 page 184
This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
Psalm 4 P Give ear to my words, O Lord; C consider my groaning. P Give attention to the sound of my cry, C my King and my God, for to you do I pray. P O Lord, in the morning you hear my voice; C in the morning I prepare a sacrifice for you and watch. P For you are not a God who delights in wickedness; C evil may not dwell with you. P The boastful shall not stand before your eyes; C you hate all evildoers. P You destroy those who speak lies; C the Lord abhors the bloodthirsty and deceitful man. P But I, through the abundance of your steadfast love, C will enter your house. 2
P I will bow down toward your holy temple C in the fear of you. P Lead me, O Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies; C make your way straight before me. P For there is no truth in their mouth; C their inmost self is destruction; P their throat is an open grave; C they flatter with their tongue. P Make them bear their guilt, O God; C let them fall by their own counsels; P because of the abundance of their transgressions cast them out, C for they have rebelled against you. P But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; C let them ever sing for joy, P and spread your protection over them, C that those who love your name may exult in you. P For you bless the righteous, O Lord; C you cover him with favor as with a shield. Epistle Reading Colossians 2:6-12 page 984 L C
This is the Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
Holy Gospel Luke 24:3-14 L The Holy Gospel according to St. Luke, the twenty-fourth chapter. C Glory to You, O Lord. 3 But
when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men stood by them in dazzling apparel.5 And as they were frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, “Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you, while he was still in Galilee, 7 that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be crucified and on the third day rise.” 8 And they remembered his words, 9 and returning from the tomb they told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10 Now it was Mary Magdalene and Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, 11 but 3
these words seemed to them an idle tale, and they did not believe them. 12 But Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened. 13 That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem, 14 and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. L C
This is the Gospel of the Lord. Praise to You, O Christ. JULY MEMORY VERSE:
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 Song “Lord, I Need You” (see video screens) Sermon Prayer of the Church Offering “The Reconciliation Song” (sung by worship team)
Service of the Sacrament Preface P C P C P C
The Lord be with you. And also with you. Lift up your hearts. We lift them to the Lord. Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. It is right to give Him thanks and praise.
P It is truly good, right, and salutary that we should at all times and in all places give thanks to You, O Lord, holy Father, almighty and everlasting God, for the countless blessings You so freely bestow on us and all creation. Above all, we give thanks for Your boundless love shown to us when You sent Your onlybegotten Son, Jesus Christ, into our flesh and laid on Him our sin, giving Him 4
into death that we might not die eternally. Because He is now risen from the dead and lives and reigns to all eternity, all who believe in Him will overcome sin and death and will rise again to new life. Therefore with angels and archangels and with all the company of heaven we laud and magnify Your glorious name, evermore praising You and saying: Song “Holy, Holy, Holy” vs. 1 Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty! Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee; Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty! God in three persons, blessèd Trinity! Prayer of Thanksgiving P Blessed are You, O Lord our God, king of all creation, for You have had mercy on us and given Your only-begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. In Your righteous judgment You condemned the sin of Adam and Eve, who ate the forbidden fruit, and You justly barred them and all their children from the tree of life. Yet, in Your great mercy, You promised salvation by a second Adam, Your Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord, and made His cross a life-giving tree for all who trust in Him. We give You thanks for the redemption You have prepared for us through Jesus Christ. Grant us Your Holy Spirit that we may faithfully eat and drink of the fruits of His cross and receive the blessings of forgiveness, life, and salvation that come to us in His body and blood. The Words of Our Lord Pax Domini P The peace of the Lord be with you always. C Amen. Sit
About Holy Communion—The Lord’s Supper is celebrated here in the belief and glad confidence that our Lord gives us as He says, not only bread and wine, but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with Him and with one another. Our Lord invites to His table those who trust His words, repent of all sin, and forgive and love as He forgives and loves us. If this is your belief, we welcome you to join us at the Lord’s table. Because we are called to examine ourselves before receiving the Lord’s Supper (I Corinthians 11:28-29), we encourage you to consider the questions on p. 329-330 in the front of the hymnal. If you are communing with us for the first time, or if you would like a fuller understanding of what we as Lutherans believe about the Lord’s Supper, please pick up a copy of “What is the Lord’s Supper?” at the Information table in the entryway. Please reserve the white grape juice cups in the center of the communion trays for those who for health reasons are unable to drink wine. If your health requires gluten-free wafers, they are available upon request. Speak to the pastor prior to the service. Our pastor is happy to speak to you further if you have any questions.
Distribution Songs “Revelation Song” piano duet by Abbey Peterson & Ruth Immerfall “How Great is Our God” piano solo by Isaac Peterson “Revelation Song” (see video screens) Post-Communion Collect P Let us pray. We give thanks to You, almighty God, that You have refreshed us through this salutary gift, and we implore You that of Your mercy You would strengthen us through the same in faith toward You and in fervent love toward one another; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. C Amen. Benedicamus P Let us bless the Lord. C Thanks be to God. Benediction P The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord look upon you with favor and T give you peace. C Amen. Sending Song “Whom Shall I Fear (God of Angel Armies)” (see video screens) 6
