    Wednesday Evening Bible Study via ZOOM—7:00 p.m. Join us each Wednesday evening for a Bible study on 1 Peter with Pastor Jeffery.

    Thursday Theology Pub Night via ZOOM—7:00 p.m.

    This is a time of casual conversation generally over a book or selected articles. The group is currently discuss- ing the book, All God’s Children and Blue Suede Shoes by Ken Myers. This provocative book exposes the manifold ways in which our lives have been affected (rarely for the better) by popular culture. As one reviewer writes, “It should make us take a hard look at what we’ve accepted as harmless entertainment.” Grab a copy of the book and if you are not getting an email for the weekly reminder, please email Pastor Jeffery at stevejeffery1703@gmail.com It’s not too late to join in!

    Upcoming Sermons

    • Matthew 22:23-33—A Single Bride for Seven Brothers: Marriage & the Resurrection

    • Matthew 22:34-46—The Law and the Lord

    Notes & Quotes

    “Judas of Galilee led a revolt in A.D. 6, when Judaea was reduced to the status of a Roman province and a census was held to assess the amount of tribute it should yield for the imperial exchequer (government of- fice/bank account). Judas…inaugurated a religious and nationalist revolt, contending that God alone was Israel’s true King, and that it was therefore high treason against God to pay tribute to Caesar. The revolt was crushed by Rome, but the movement lived on in the party of the Zealots.” –F. F. Bruce

    “Jesus’ cleansing of the temple (21:12-17) had been a revolutionary act against religious authority; Jesus’ opponents now wanted to provoke Jesus into a revolutionary remark against civil authority…Or they wanted to provoke Jesus into a collaborating remark that would incense the patriotic wing of his peo- ple.” –F. D. Bruner

    “…the Church presented herself not as another ‘sect’ or cult that existed under the umbrella of the polis; she was an alternative governing body for the city and the beginning of a new city…My com- plaint is more fundamental: we have accepted our liberal opponents’ account of who we are and no longer see that the gospel is an inherently political announcement, nor that the Church is an inherently political community.” –Peter Leithart

    The Lord’s Supper is observed every Lord’s Day at All Saints, and we warmly invite to the Lord’s Table all who

    are baptized disciples of the Lord Jesus, under the authority of Christ and His body, the Church, and this in-

    cludes covenant children. By eating the bread and drinking the wine with us, you are acknowledging that you

    are a sinner, without hope except in the sovereign mercy of God, and that you are trusting in Jesus Christ alone

    for salvation. You also acknowledge to the overseers of this congregation that you are in covenant with God,

    being an active member of a congregation which belongs to the Triune God and is marked by the Word and

    sacraments. If you have any questions about your participation, please speak to one of the elders before or

    after the service.

    OUR LORD CLEANSES US

    FROM OUR SIN

    A Corporate Reading of Our Lord’s Instruction

    Give unto the Lord, O you mighty ones, give unto the Lord glory and strength.

    Give unto the Lord the glory due to His name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

    The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders; the Lord is over many waters.

    The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.

    The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars, yes, the Lord splinters the cedars of Lebanon.

    He makes them also skip like a calf, Lebanon and Sirion like a young wild ox.

    The voice of the Lord divides the flames of fire. The voice of the Lord shakes the wilder- ness; the Lord shakes the Wilderness of Kadesh.

    The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth, and strips the forests bare; and in His temple everyone says, “Glory!”

    The Lord sat enthroned at the Flood, and the Lord sits as King forever. The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless His people with peace.

    Psalm 29

    AN INVITATION TO CONFESS OUR SINS—

    The voice of our majestic Lord is a voice of power and majesty. His word accomplished creation. His word sustains creation. His word brings forth new birth and His word sustains us. In His kindness, He also gives us the sure word of pardon. Let us join together confess- ing our sins.

    Prayer of Thanksgiving & Dedication

    We Confess Our Faith: The Apostles’ Creed

    † Pastor: Christians, in whom do you believe?

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

    and in Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, our Lord,

    He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.

    He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.

    He descended into Hades.

    On 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 there He will come to judge the living and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church,

    The communion of the saints, the forgiveness of sins,

    The resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

    Amen.

    The Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper We commune with the Lord & with one another

    After the Eucharist - A Table Blessing

    † Pastor: May the body and the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ strengthen and preserve you steadfast in the true faith unto life eternal. In the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    Thanks be to God!

    ‡ CONGREGATIONAL PRAYER We Confess Our Sins, Together & Individually

    Heavenly Father, grant us Your mercy through Jesus who is our hope and Savior. Forgive us for our selfish disregard of one another. We confess our sinfulness in seeking our own desires, and not giving preference to others in honor. Pardon us for our thoughts and desires which are evil; You know us fully. Grant us Your forgiving grace for not zealously adhering to what is good. Forgive our laziness in prayer, our dullness in Your ways, and our failure to build up one another in love. By Your Holy Spirit, prompt us to love and good deeds, and do not let our sins have dominion over us. In Your kindness, hear and forgive, as we now continue in prayer, confessing these sins…

    [we pause in prayer, and then conclude together...]

    With Your gracious pardon, remind us that we are Your children and enliven us with the Spirit of the Son, and in the end receive us into Your glory, through Jesus Christ our only Savior. Amen

    † ABSOLUTION: Our Assurance of Forgiveness is declared
