For the Ninth Sunday after Pentecost on August 2,  2020

Isaiah 55:1-5

Romans 9:1-5 (6-13)

 

Matthew 14:13-21

Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

13 Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a desolate place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. 14 When he went ashore he saw a great crowd, and he had compassion on them and healed their sick. 15 Now when it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a desolate place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 But Jesus said, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” 17 They said to him, “We have only five loaves here and two fish.” 18 And he said, “Bring them here to me.” 19 Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass, and taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven and said a blessing. Then he broke the loaves and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. 20 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over. 21 And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

July 26, 2020 The Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

posted Jul 26, 2020, 8:23 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost on July 26, 2020

Deuteronomy 7:6-9

Romans 8:28-39

 

Matthew 13:44-52

The Parable of the Hidden Treasure

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

 

The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

 

The Parable of the Net

47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind. 48 When it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into containers but threw away the bad. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

 

New and Old Treasures

51 “Have you understood all these things?” They said to him, “Yes.” 52 And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”

Livestreamed and You Tube Services:   Our services continue to be available via our church website and will be livestreamed and also available, once downloaded, via You Tube.

Weekly Bulletins, Announcements, and Sermons  continue to be available on the church website.

Elders’ Meeting:  Please note that the August elders’ meeting has been moved up one week and will be held this Wednesday, July 29, at 7:00 p.m., in the fellowship hall in Creston. 


Fellowship Hall Reservations:  Mike Lang continues to be the person to contact to inquire making reservations to use the fellowship hall in Creston. 


Bible Class: This morning, during the 8:00 a.m. Bible Class,  Pastor began a study titled How Faith Works based on the book of James.  The same study will begin in Mt. Ayr on Tuesday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m.    How Faith Works provides us with an insight into the relationship between faith and works.  Often we are tempted to say that it is not really important what we believe but that we do good for others.  Others try to pull us in the opposite direction: it is not what we do that counts but only that we believe the right things.  James in his epistle sets the record straight.  In this study you will discover

· the proper relationship between faith and works;

· what it means to be free to serve God with fruits of faith;

· practical ways of putting your faith into action through Christ-like loving and living.


Janitor Needed:  Jacob Rutz, our current janitor, will be heading off to college mid-August, so we will be needing a new janitor.    If you are interested in this position, which takes a few hours each week, or you know of someone who is, please contact Byron Bilderback or Rick Hadley.    

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                       

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                        

                                                               

 

 

                             

                                                                                                  

                                     

                                           

                  

                                                   

 

 

                                                     

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                           

                                                    

                           

                               

                             

 

 

       

 

 

 

             

 

 

                                           

                                                    

                           

                               

                             

 

 

       

 

 

 

             

 

July 19, 2020 The Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

posted Jul 16, 2020, 9:31 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost on July 19, 2020

Isaiah 44:6-8             Romans 8:18-27

Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43 (printed here)

The Parable of the Weeds

24 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, 25 but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. 26 So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. 27 And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds?’ 28 He said to them, ‘An enemy has done this.’ So the servants said to him, ‘Then do you want us to go and gather them?’ 29 But he said, ‘No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them. 30 Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, “Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn.”’”

The Parable of the Weeds Explained

36 Then he left the crowds and went into the house. And his disciples came to him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the weeds of the field.” 37 He answered, “The one who sows the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 The field is the world, and the good seed is the sons of the kingdom. The weeds are the sons of the evil one, 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil. The harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 Just as the weeds are gathered and burned with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will gather out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers, 42 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears, let him hear.

Voter’s Meeting:  Today, at 1:00, in the fellowship hall in Creston.


Proposed Amendment to By-Laws

A proposed amendment to the By-Laws will be presented at the July 19 Voters meeting.

 

The amendment is to eliminate the term limits for the Treasurer and Financial Secretary, which are currently two consecutive, 1 year terms. This is being recommended because the computer programs used for both offices is detailed and takes time to learn. It has become increasingly difficult to find congregational members who are willing to learn these programs. The By-Laws do require that an annual audit be conducted, so this should protect against unauthorized transactions by these officers.

 

The proposed amendment is to Article IV, part B, the 5th sentence:

 

“The officers shall be permitted to hold the same office for two (2) consecutive terms only, except the Treasurer and Financial Secretary offices shall have no term limits.

 

Bible Class: At 8:00 a.m. next Sunday, July 26, in Creston, Pastor will begin a study titled How Faith Works based on the book of James.  The same study will begin in Mt. Ayr on Tuesday, August 18 at 6:30 p.m.    How Faith Works provides us with an insight into the relationship between faith and works.  Often we are tempted to say that it is not really important what we believe but that we do good for others.  Others try to pull us in the opposite direction: it is not what we do that counts but only that we believe the right things.  James in his epistle sets the record straight.  In this study you will discover

July 12, 2020 The Sixth Sunday after Pentecost

posted Jul 9, 2020, 9:22 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Sixth Sunday after Pentecost on July 12, 2020

Isaiah 55:10-13         Romans 8:12-17   Matthew 13:1-9, 18-23   

1That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. 2 And great crowds gathered about him, so that he got into a boat and sat down. And the whole crowd stood on the beach. 3 And he told them many things in parables, saying: “A sower went out to sow. 4 And as he sowed, some seeds fell along the path, and the birds came and devoured them. 5 Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and immediately they sprang up, since they had no depth of soil, 6 but when the sun rose they were scorched. And since they had no root, they withered away. 7 Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. 8 Other seeds fell on good soil and produced grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. 9 He who has ears, let him hear.”   18 “Hear then the parable of the sower: 19 When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path. 20 As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, 21 yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. 22 As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 23 As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”

  LIFE TOGETHER

VISITORS:  We are so glad you joined us today.  We do collect offerings during our  worship services.  While we believe this is a chance for each believer to be a good steward of the gifts they have received from God, you are welcome but not expected to give an offering while you are our guest.  If you would like to learn more about the Lord’s ministry here at Trinity please call Pastor Rutz. 

He would love to get acquainted and visit at a time that is convenient for you.     You are also invited to join members in the fellowship hall after the 9:00 service or prior to the 11:00 service for a time of fellowship.

 

Hymnals:  The hymnals are available again for your use during the service, but for awhile we will continue to print out the entire service in the bulletin, also. 


Attendance Cards: Attendance cards are back in the pew racks.  Visitors and members are asked to fill out an attendance card and to list names of each family member in attendance.  Turn in your card at the back of the church at the end of the service. 

On Sundays when there is Holy Communion please list the names of those who will be communing on the Holy Communion registration side of the card.

If you have moved or your phone number or email address have changed, please note any changes on the attendance card so that we can update our records in the office.

  

Private Communion Times:   If you would like to take holy communion privately, please call Pastor to set up an appointment.

 

Livestreamed and You Tube Services:   Our services continue to be available via our church website and will be livestreamed and also available, once downloaded, via You Tube.  

Weekly Bulletins, Announcements, and Sermons continue to be available on the church website.


Voters’ Meeting:   The next quarterly voters’ meeting will be held next Sunday, July 19, at 1:00 p.m. in the fellowship hall in Creston.


Proposed Amendment to By-Laws

A proposed amendment to the By-Laws will be presented at the July 19 Voters meeting.

 

The amendment is to eliminate the term limits for the Treasurer and Financial Secretary, which are currently two consecutive, 1 year terms. This is being recommended because the computer programs used for both offices is detailed and takes time to learn. It has become increasingly difficult to find congregational members who are willing to learn these programs. The By-Laws do require that an annual audit be conducted, so this should protect against unauthorized transactions by these officers.

 

The proposed amendment is to Article IV, part B, the 5th sentence:

 

“The officers shall be permitted to hold the same office for two (2) consecutive terms only, except the Treasurer and Financial Secretary offices shall have no term limits.

June 28, 2020 The Fourth Sunday After Pentecost

posted Jun 25, 2020, 8:08 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost on June 28, 2020

Jeremiah 28:5-9

Romans 7:1-13

 

Matthew 10:34-42

Not Peace, but a Sword

34 “Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36 And a person's enemies will be those of his own household. 37 Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

 

Rewards

40 “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me. 41 The one who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet's reward, and the one who receives a righteous person because he is a righteous person will receive a righteous person's reward. 42 And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”

June 21, 2020 The Third Sunday after Pentecost

posted Jun 18, 2020, 10:23 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Third Sunday after Pentecost on June 21, 2020

Jeremiah 20:7-13       Romans 6:12-23

Matthew 10:5a, 21-33

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve Apostles

5 These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans,

21 Brother will deliver brother over to death, and the father his child, and children will rise against parents and have them put to death, 22 and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next, for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel before the Son of Man comes.

24 “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master. 25 It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household.

Have No Fear

26 “So have no fear of them, for nothing is covered that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. 32 So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, 33 but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.

June 14, 2020 Second Sunday after Pentecost

posted Jun 11, 2020, 9:30 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Second Sunday after Pentecost on June 14, 2020

Exodus 19:2-8      Romans 5:5-16

 

Matthew 9:35-10:8 (9-20)

The Harvest Is Plentiful, the Laborers Few

35 And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; 38 therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

 

The Twelve Apostles

10 And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. 2 The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Zealot, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him.

 

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve Apostles

5 These twelve Jesus sent out, instructing them, “Go nowhere among the Gentiles and enter no town of the Samaritans, 6 but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And proclaim as you go, saying, ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’ 8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay.

May 31, 2020 Pentecost Sunday

posted May 28, 2020, 8:12 AM by Linda Hadley

For the Day of Pentecost on May 31, 2020

Numbers 11:24-30

Acts 2:1-21

John 7:37-39

Rivers of Living Water

37 On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 39 Now this he said about the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were to receive, for as yet the Spirit had not been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified.

VISITORS:  We are so glad you joined us today.  We do collect offerings during our  worship services.  While we believe this is a chance for each believer to be a good steward of the gifts they have received from God, you are welcome but not expected to give an offering while you are our guest.  If you would like to learn more about the Lord’s ministry here at Trinity please call Pastor Rutz. 

He would love to get acquainted and visit at a time that is convenient for you.     You are also invited to join members in the fellowship hall after the service for a time of fellowship.

 

Attendance:   The elder of the month or an usher will be recording attendance for you today.

Livestreamed and You Tube Services:   Our services will continue to be available via our church website and will be livestreamed and also available, once downloaded, via You Tube.  

Weekly Bulletins, Announcements, and Sermons will continue to be available on the church website.

Private Communion Times:   If you would like to take holy communion privately, please call Pastor to set up an appointment.

Yarn for Preschool:  Trinity Preschool knows a woman who likes to knit/crochet stocking caps and she donates a lot of them to the preschool.  Her supply of yarn has run out and if any of you happen to have some yarn around home that you don’t plan to use and would like to donate it to the preschool, that would be great!   Any color, amount, etc. is appreciated.  If you have any questions, contact Joy Brown at 782-5095  Ext. 2

What is “Pentecost”?

The word “Pentecost” (pronounced PEN-tuh-kost) comes from the Greek word pentekostos which means “fiftieth.”

Exactly 50 days after Jesus rose from the dead, the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples in the form of flames of fire.

 

Why is Pentecost so important?

When Jesus died, the disciples were sad because they thought that their friend and Lord was gone forever. But Jesus rose again! Forty days after His resurrection, Jesus did finally ascend into heaven leaving the disciples below. However, before Jesus actually died, rose again and ascended into heaven, He made a promise to His disciples that He would send the Holy Spirit to them. He said that the Holy Spirit would come and guide them “into all the truth” (John 16:13). Jesus doesn’t leave us alone

to fend for ourselves. Jesus is here with us, and the Holy Spirit guides and leads the Church into the truth of the wonderful Gospel! We celebrate and remember this at Pentecost.
