September 1 – Pentecost XII (Proper 17C) – Supporters of abortion suggest babies with disabilities are better off not being born. Advocates of assisted suicide also presume certain injuries and illnesses make life too burdensome. But Jesus calls us all fallen and helpless—and then rewrites His commandments to save us as sons and daughters (Luke 14:2-5). He receives “the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind” (Luke 14:13) as honored guests, and invites us also to celebrate the blessing of each one.

Please take note of the quilt displayed in the front pews of the sanctuary. This quilt was made by the LWML at their Fall meeting in Manhattan, last Fall, and is being displayed at all the Lutheran churches in our Zone. At the Fall meeting here in Wheaton on September 21st, it will be decided who should become the recipient of the quilt.

The LWML is continuing to support the Crisis Center in Manhattan. The item needed for donation at this time is large/contractor size trash bags. As persons leave the crisis center, their belongings (clothing, toiletries, bedding) are put in a large bag to travel to the next living quarters. Please put your donation in the blue tub in the basement entryway. And the needed item for September is bar soap. September is soap month for Lutheran World Relief.

Reminder: Remember to designate your Thrivent Choice Dollars. You must telephone your choice in and tell where you want your dollars to go, or you lose your dollars.

Welcome to our visitors. We pray all will be spiritually enriched by your visit to this “House of God.” Here Christ breaks the silence that surrounds mortal man in his sin and death. Here in Christ Jesus we hear the voice of the Eternal One, and we hear the voice of the Father, and that He loves, that He forgives and that in the resurrection of Christ, He has made us His Children and has given us victory over death itself.


We continue to pray for those unable to worship with us who are residing in a care facility: Westmoreland Care Home: Jerry Abitz Vintage Park, Wamego: Martha Biesenthal Eastridge, Centralia: Vera Teske, Onaga Health and Rehab: Kenny Falk, Ernest Haefner

September 1

"Begin Again"

Speaker: Rev. Dr. Michael Zeigler

The book of Genesis tells us that God


all things. But it won't answer every question

about when, how, and why God did it. That's because Genesis is mostly about getting to know

God. Dr. Michael Zeigler begins a new series of messages based on the first book of the Bible.

(Genesis 1:1 - 2:30)
