Old Testament Reading  Jeremiah 10:23-25 NIV

23 Lord, I know that people’s lives are not their own;
    it is not for them to direct their steps.
24 Discipline me, Lord, but only in due measure—
    not in your anger,
    or you will reduce me to nothing.
25 Pour out your wrath on the nations
    that do not acknowledge you,
    on the peoples who do not call on your name.
For they have devoured Jacob;
    they have devoured him completely
    and destroyed his homeland.

Lector:      This is the Word of the Lord.
People:    Thanks be to God! 

Epistle Lesson 2 Timothy 4:1-8 NIV

In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. 3 For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4 They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry.
6 For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. 7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 8 Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.

Lector: This is the Word of the Lord.
People: Thanks be to God!

Anthem

(8:30) “Shine”

St. John’s 2nd Grade Choir

(10:30) “This Is My Father’s World” arr. Warner P. Grams

Jubilate Choir

Holy Gospel  Mark 1:15-20 NIV

15 “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”
16 As Jesus walked beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and his brother Andrew casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 17 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” 18 At once they left their nets and followed him.
19 When he had gone a little farther, he saw James son of Zebedee and his brother John in a boat, preparing their nets. 20 Without delay he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired men and followed him.

Lector:   This is the Gospel of the Lord.
People:    Thanks be to God! 

Children's Message 

Hymn of the Day “A Mighty Fortress”(LSB 656)                

A mighty fortress is our God,
A trusty shield and weapon;
He helps us free from ev’ry need
That hath us now o’ertaken.
The old evil foe
Now means deadly woe;
Deep guile and great might
Are his dread arms in fight;
On earth is not his equal.

With might of ours can naught be done,
Soon were our loss effected;
But for us fights the valiant One,
Whom God Himself elected.
Ask ye, Who is this?
Jesus Christ it is,
Of Sabaoth Lord,
And there’s none other God;
He holds the field forever.

Though devils all the world should fill,
All eager to devour us,
We tremble not, we fear no ill;
They shall not overpow’r us.
This world’s prince may still
Scowl fierce as he will,
He can harm us none.
He’s judged; the deed is done;
One little word can fell him.

The Word they still shall let remain
Nor any thanks have for it;
He’s by our side upon the plain
With His good gifts and Spirit.
And take they our life,
Goods, fame, child, and wife,
Though these all be gone,
Our vict’ry has been won;
The Kingdom ours remaineth. 




Message
 Pastor Tim Klinkenberg


 

Apostles' Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell.
The third day He rose again from the dead.
He ascended into heaven
and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty.
From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Prayers of the Church

Each petition concludes with:
Liturgist: Lord, in your mercy,
People: Hear our prayer.

give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory
forever and ever. Amen.

Till all the world adore His sacred name.

Prayers of the Church
October 2nd, 2022

Loving God, help us to plant our roots in the river of God and guide us to live life in the Spirit, so that when adversity brings heat and drought, we may be refreshed, fruitful, and faithful. Lord, in Your mercy,

Almighty God, the adversity of heat and drought can bring fear and worries.
Be with those who are in the heat and drought of loneliness and isolation,
who feel like the bush in the wastelands.

Be with those in the heat and drought of their vocation,
struggling with waking up in the morning and carrying out the tasks assigned to them.

Be with those in the heat and drought of health problems,
who are suffering, in pain, and cannot do things they once could.

And be with those in the heat and drought of grief,
who mourn the loss of loved ones.

Hear us as we pray for Elsa See, Suzie LaBonge, Jane Ponder, Larry Henry, Benjamin Estrada, Eva Alejandre, Airana Borrari, Nancy Fricke, Chuck Ferguson, the Kendler Family, Gwendolyn Guenat, Tizoc Ceballos, Karen Teague, Faye Janovich, Sherri Gulon, Freida Gumlack, Mike Stapleton, the Koppel family, the Ryerson family, Megan Small, Dave Tibbs, Dean Martinez, Eldon Neben, Denise Weyhrich, Chuck Hoger, and those we name in our hearts…

May they find refreshment in the living water that Jesus graciously and freely gives.
Lord, in Your mercy,

Gracious God, with our roots in the river of God, may forgiveness flow through us to others. When we are wronged, move us away from vengeance and to a reconciliation that comes with a love that never fails, a hope that never quits, and a compassion that never ceases to flow.
Lord, in Your mercy,

Everlasting God, with our roots in the river of God, may our leaves always be green. We confess and abandon sin so that there are no blockages stopping the flow of life. And with the Word of God as our foundation, may our leaves shine in and out of season.
Lord, in Your mercy,

Faithful God, with our roots in the river of God, may we bear and share fresh fruit. Help us to love those who need Christ’s love, give joy in those in need of laughter, remain peaceful in times of turmoil, stay patient with the impatient, be kind to the cruel and good to the bad, keep faithful to those who waver, be gentle to the rough, and show self-control when tempers flare.
Lord, in Your mercy,

O God, may Your grace given through Jesus Christ be sufficient for all our needs, and may the fellowship of the Holy Spirit guide and sustain us this day and always. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

 

Offering Prayer
Heavenly Father, trusting in Your continued blessings of faith, health, and employment, and knowing that You are the giver of all good things, we bring our offering and our first fruits to You. Grant us Your Spirit that whatever we receive as income, as a gift, as an inheritance, we shall regard as Your blessing and be moved to give You Your share. May we never forget that as Your redeemed children, we are Your stewards. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
