Each week we will be highlighting and praying for a family or an individual
from our congregation. Please pray for them throughout the week that God
would meet all of their needs. This week we will pray for Elizabeth, Jake, Addison, Caleb, and DeLanie Monroe.
The sermon is based on Deuteronomy 18:15-20. No one likes going alone. God

Regarding the Lord’s Supper
In the Lord’s Supper Jesus Christ gives us His true body and blood for the forgiveness of all our sins.
Matthew 26:26,28 Take and eat; this is my body... This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured
out for many for the forgiveness of sins. All who have examined themselves and who believe what God’s
Word and the Lutheran Confessions teach concerning this holy sacrament are invited to commune with
us. 1 Corinthians 11:28-29 But let a person examine himself and then eat of the bread and drink from
the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing the Lord’s body brings a judgment on himself.
If you would like to know more about the Lord’s Supper, Pastor Werner would be glad to speak with you.
If you are not a confirmed Lutheran, you are welcome to come forward for a blessing; simply keep your
hands folded when you come to the table. Those members and visitors who will commune are encouraged to read the blue preparatory brochure in the pocket in the front of the hymnal and to read and sign
the friendship booklet.
