PRAYER UPON ENTERING: O Lord God, You led Your ancient people
through the wilderness and brought them to the promised land. Guide the
people of Your Church that following our Savior we may walk through the
wilderness of this world toward the glory of the world to come; through
Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy
Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
WELCOME: We cordially welcome you to the Lord's Service. If you are
worshipping with us for the first time, the following suggestions may be
helpful to you:
Put your bulletin in the back of the hymnal. A panel will stick out on the
right side with the Order of Service. By doing this, both hands are free to
find the liturgy and hymns.
Large print bulletins and hearing devices are available. Please ask an usher
for assistance.
The Music Room, the room to your right before entering the sanctuary,
is available for parents with small children who need to step out during
the service. The service is televised in the Music Room.
The time before the service is a time of prayer and preparation to receive
the Lord’s gifts of salvation. In addition to prayer, look over the readings
and the words to the hymns during this preparation time.
Please turn off all cell phones and refrain from taking pictures during the
service. Thank you.
GUESTS AND THE LORD'S SUPPER: If you desire to commune, please speak
to one of the pastors before the service. Our altar is open to those who
confess oneness with us in doctrine, are members of our congregation or
sister congregations of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and are not
under church discipline in another congregation.
Stewardship Thought for the week...
Mark 10:45 “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Jesus gives everything He has: He
gives Himself. That self-giving is the model for our giving in all aspects of
our lives. In our family, in our church, and in the world at large, Jesus calls us
to follow His example in self-giving. We can only do this if we are connected
to His self-giving in faith.
Tyler James, son of Scott & Jessica Sampolinski (10:45)
David Molina-Alor Jr., son of David & Katti Molina (6:30)
A gift has been given to the organ fund by Roger & Alice Buck in
thanksgiving for 20 years of ministry at Trinity
In loving memory of her son, Jack Pankratz, by Viktoriya Dornfeldt
For mercy, grace and many blessings beyond comprehension
A BIG, BIG THANK YOU to everyone who help in so many ways with the
visiting high school choir. We are grateful to those who unselfishly opened
their homes, made phone calls, prepared and served meals, grilled brats and
hamburgers, made potato salad, baked sweets and helped furnish our guests
with lunches to go.
LENTEN SERVICES: Please join us for midweek Lenten Services on
Wednesdays at 10 am or 6:30 pm. A soup luncheon will follow the morning
service in the gym and a lighter supper will be held before the evening service
beginning at 5:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall.
HOLY WEEK SERVICES: Maundy Thursday Services are April 2 at 10 am and
6:30 pm. Good Friday Services are April 3 at 1 pm and 7 pm. Easter Sunday
Service are April 5 at 6:30 am, 8:30 am and 10:30 am. The 6:30 am Sunrise
Service begins in the gym. The church office will be closed Good Friday and
Easter Monday.
Absolution times for Lent are 9am – 9:45am Wednesday mornings and 5:30pm
– 6:15pm in the Evening at the communion rail in the church. Individual
Confession and Absolution may also be scheduled by appointment with the
pastors. To learn more about it and how it works look on pages 292-293 in the
hymnal. As preparation you may find the publication “Self-Examination and
Reflection: The Ten Commandments preach Repentance; that is, by them God
shows us our sin and how much we need a Savior,"" helpful. This publication
can be found at the various entrances to the sanctuary. May God bless this
holy season of prayerful and penitential reflection!

Vindicate me, O God, and defend my
y cause against an ungodly | people,*
from the deceitful and unjust man dede | liver me!
I love the LORD, because | he has heard*
my voice and my pleas for | mercy.
Because he inclined his | ear to me,*
therefore I will call on him as long | as I live.
The snares of death encompassed
ed me; the pangs of Sheol laid | hold
on me;*
I suffered distress and | anguish.
Then I called on the name | of the LORD:*
“O LORD, I pray, deliv- | er my soul!”
For you have delivered my | soul from death,*
my eyes from tears, my feet from | stumbling.
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
is now, and will be forever. | Amen.
Vindicate me, O God, and defend my

SWD Missions Prayer for Week of March 22: As we anticipate spring in
Wisconsin we can also expect a var
ariety of bad weather that at times
brings disaster and great loss. Please
se ask the Lord to spare us from these
and other critical incidents of stress
s in
i our lives and to bless the work of
our District’s Disaster Relief Team,
Team trained to assist our members,
congregations and communities to cope
co in these situations, remembering
that God is in complete control of everything.
Jeremiah 31:31–34 31“Behold, the days are coming, declares the LORD,
when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house
of Judah, 32not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the
day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of
Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband,
declares the LORD. 33But this is the covenant that I will make with the
house of Israel after those days, declares the LORD: I will put my law
within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God,
and they shall be my people. 34And no longer shall each one teach his
neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ for they shall all
know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the LORD. For I
will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
Hebrews 5:1–10 1For every high priest chosen from among men is
appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and
sacrifices for sins. 2He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward,
since he himself is beset with weakness. 3Because of this he is obligated
to offer sacrifice for his own sins just as he does for those of the people.
And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God,
just as Aaron was. 5So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high
priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son,
today I have begotten you”; 6as he says also in another place, “You are a
priest forever, after the order of Melchizedek.” 7In the days of his flesh,
Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to
him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of
his reverence. 8Although he was a son, he learned obedience through
what he suffered. 9And being made perfect, he became the source of
eternal salvation to all who obey him, 10being designated by God a high
priest after the order of Melchizedek.
Mark 10:35–45 35And James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came up to
[Jesus] and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us whatever we
ask of you.” 36And he said to them, “What do you want me to do for
you?” 37And they said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand and
one at your left, in your glory.” 38Jesus said to them, “You do not know
what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink, or to be
baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” 39And they said to
him, “We are able.” And Jesus said to them, “The cup that I drink you
will drink, and with the baptism with which I am baptized, you will be
baptized, 40but to sit at my right hand or at my left is not mine to grant,
but it is for those for whom it has been prepared.” 41And when the ten
heard it, they began to be indignant at James and John. 42And Jesus
called them to him and said to them, “You know that those who are
considered rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones
exercise authority over them. 43But it shall not be so among you. But
whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 44and whoever
would be first among you must be slave of all. 45For even the Son of Man
came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for
Notes on Today’s Divine Service
Treasures from the Church: “St. James was indeed to have his glory. He
was to be at the top of the heap, at the front of the line, at the head of the
table, the very first of the twelve, in fact, to die as a martyr in the service of
the Lord Jesus. What a change in priority! No more was James selfishly
seeking the praise of men, rather in praising His Lord, he was willing to be
arrested, humiliated, and put to death. Truly, he did drink the Lord’s cup
and was baptized with the Lord’s baptism. By God’s grace, he was able.” Rev. Larry Beane
Readings: Jesus catechizes His disciples in the way of the cross, revealing
that He will be condemned and put to death “and after three days he will
rise” (Mark 10:33–34). But the Twelve do not understand. Instead, they argue
among themselves about who will be the greatest, with James and John
requesting the places of honor on either side of Jesus in His glory. However,
Jesus has come to make Himself the “slave of all” and “to give his life as a
ransom for many” (Mark 10:43–45). He shares the true glory of His cross
with all who are baptized with His Baptism and with those who drink His
cup of salvation, the New Testament in His blood (Mark 10:39). By these Holy
Sacraments, the Lord makes Himself known to all His people, forgiving their
sins “from the least of them to the greatest” (Jer. 31:33–34). Though He is the
very Son of God, “he learned obedience through what he suffered” and so
became our great High Priest, that we may enter His glory by the way of His
sacrifice (Heb. 5:8–10).
The Divine Service – Table fellowship at the Lord’s Supper: The Lord’s
Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad
confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread
and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness
of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another. Our
Lord invites to his table those who trust his words, repent of all sin, and set
aside any refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us, that they
may show forth his death until he comes. Because those who eat and drink
our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm and because
Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar,
any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing
from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church— Missouri Synod,
and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked first to speak with the
pastor or an usher. For further study, see Matthew 5:23f.; 10:32f.; 18:15-35;
26:26-29; 1 Cor. 11:17- 34.
Sermon: What’s in the cup? More than you see or realize. James and John
thought that they could drink from the same cup as Jesus as a way of
gaining glory for themselves. But the cup from which Jesus’ drank was
something quite different. It was filled with the vinegar of suffering and
death. Jesus drank from it on the cross to gain glory not for Himself, but
for a fallen humanity. The cup that Jesus drinks, James and John and you
and me do also now drink - only now it has been transformed by the glory of
the cross, that it be now for us a cup no longer filled with wrath and
condemnation and death, but now filled with the life-giving blood of Christ,
that we may live in His forgiveness and salvation.
