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. BAPTISMS: Tyler James, son of Scott & Jessica Sampolinski (10:45) David Molina-Alor Jr., son of David & Katti Molina (6:30) FLOWERS & GIFTS GIVEN THIS SUNDAY TO THE GLORY OF GOD: 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.

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. 4 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 many.” 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.
