It is a reminder that although we are weak in faith like Thomas at times, by the grace of God and the witness of Scripture, we are able to confess Jesus “as my Lord and my God.” With that faith bestowed on us we are able to share it, as the disciples did on Pentecost (in the reading from Acts). We are telling others about “Him Flowers have been placed on the Altar this week by Phillis larson who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood” (Revelation 1:5b). SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION ~ As Lutherans, we believe that the Body and Blood of Christ are truly present in, with, and under the bread and wine when we receive the Sacrament. We do not believe that the bread and wine somehow mystically “change” into something other than bread and wine, nor do we believe that the bread and wine merely “represent” Christ’s Body and Blood; rather we are bound by the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when He said, “Take, eat, this is My body” and “Take, drink, this is My blood”. We believe and teach that when we receive the bread and wine, we are truly receiving the Body and Blood of Christ (because of His divine words). We, therefore also believe the Sacrament of Holy Communion is more than just a memorial, we believe it is Christ truly coming to us and offering His Body and His Blood in an outward sign of His love for us and as an outward assurance of the forgiveness He won for us by His death on the Cross. If you believe this and are baptized, and are repent of your sins, we would welcome you to commune with us. If you are in doubt, please do not take communion until you have spoken to the Pastor or an Elder. (White grape juice is offered for those who are unable to partake of the red wine. For identification, the cups are placed in the center of the tray.) GATHERING OF THE TITHES AND OFFERINGS is an act of worship that has been part of Christian worship for decades. It is the Christian’s response to the generosity of God and a commitment made between them and Him. At Calvary we have two ways to respond, by using the boxes at the entrances to the sanctuaryor by placing it in the plates as they are passed along the pew. Guest and Visitors – your attendance this morning is offering enough for us, please do not feel obligated or pressured. Thank you for being here. PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO sign our Friendship Pad. (The little red book at the end of each hymnal rack) HEADSETS are available for the hearing impaired. Please notify a greeter or usher if you need one.

NOVEMBER 2, 2014 Jeremiah 32 2 At that time the army of the king of Babylon was besieging Jerusalem, and Jeremiah the prophet was shut up in the court of the guard that was in the palace of the king of Judah. 3 For Zedekiah king of Judah had imprisoned him, saying, "Why do you prophesy and say, 'Thus says the Lord: Behold, I am giving this city into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall capture it; Jeremiah said, "The word of the Lord came to me:7 Behold, Hanamel the son of Shallum your uncle will come to you and say, 'Buy my field that is at Anathoth, for the right of redemption by purchase is yours. ' 8 Then Hanamel my cousin came to me in the court of the guard, in accordance with the word of the Lord, and said to me, 'Buy my field that is at Anathoth in the land of Benjamin, for the right of possession and redemption is yours; buy it for yourself.
