HYMNS: 235, 363, 234, 520 v. 1 & 3

ORDER OF SERVICE: Service of the Word p 38ff



FIRST LESSON: Isaiah 35:4-7a

This reading depicts our spiritual needs in physical terms. Physical weakness and trouble mirror the absolute state of need in which we are born. All our troubles drive us to despair of our own strength and understanding and to be the more ready to receive from His Word ears that hear and eyes that see.

PSALM OF THE DAY: Psalm 146 on page 120

We have every reason to praise the Lord. He takes care of every need we could possibly have.

SECOND LESSON: Acts 3:1-10

GOSPEL: Mark 7:31-37

Jesus deals with even the momentary fear of the man most gently. That is always how He deals with us, one at a time, with perfect understanding and compassion.

THE SERMON: Mark 7:31-37

THE THEME: Praise the Lord! He does all things well.



Monday Outreach/Activity Committee (all welcome), 7 p.m.

Tuesday Ladies Fellowship, 7 p.m.
