JUST A NOTE OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO ATTEND WORSHIP
Always remember and never forget what you RECEIVE in WORSHIP! You get to hear words directly from God. You get to have fellowship with your brothers and sisters in Christ, and those who are confirmed get to receive Christ's body and blood for the forgiveness of their sins. Everyone gets to publicly confess their sinfulness and hear the DIRECT words of forgiveness of Christ through the pastor.
There is nothing more important in the life of a Christian on Sunday morning than worship!
So far this Summer our worship attendance has been awful. It is understandable if you are out of town, but if you are in town there is NO EXCUSE. Just because it is Summer vacation from school and other things doesn't mean it should be Summer vacation from worship!
God never takes a break from you and you shouldn't take a break from Him and His gifts either. His gifts of His Word and His Sacraments are of utmost importance in your life and your family's life. Please make every effort to be in worship for your own sake and for the sake of your brothers and sisters in Christ!
Make plans to be in worship this Saturday night or Sunday morning especially as we induct Kelsey Overbeck!
