John 8:31-36

The Truth Will Set You Free

31 So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” 33 They answered him, “We are offspring of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How is it that you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34 Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. 35 The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. 36 So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

 Matthew 11:12-19English Standard Version (ESV)

12 From the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force. 13 For all the Prophets and the Law prophesied until John, 14 and if you are willing to accept it, he is Elijah who is to come. 15 He who has ears to hear, let him hear.16 “But to what shall I compare this generation? It is like children sitting in the marketplaces and calling to their playmates,17 “‘We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a dirge, and you did not mourn.’ 18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds.”

18 For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.’ 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Look at him! A glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ Yet wisdom is justified by her deeds.”

 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 form 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.

           

VOTERS MEETING:  The quarterly voters’ meeting will be held TODAY, October 29, at 1:00 pm in the fellowship hall in Creston.  Those who live closer to the Mt. Ayr location may meet at the church there to participate in the meeting via Skype.  Included  on the agenda is the election of officers and board members for 2018,.  A list of proposed officers and board members is found on an insert in today’s bulletin. 


Tuesday, October 31, will be the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.    The next day, November 1, will be All Saints’ Day.   We will celebrate the Festival of All Saints’ Day on Sunday, November 5, with holy communion in Creston and Mt. Ayr.

 

Thank You to the members of Trinity for your thoughts and prayers during my recent recovery.

 Trinity’s 90th :Trinity would like to celebrate the 90th anniversary of our church which is next year.  If you would like to be on a committee to put a few activities together please contact Julie Lang.

HONORING OUR VETERANS: On Sunday, November 12, we will honor our veterans with a reception following the church service in Creston.   Please bring pictures and memorabilia of members of your family who have served our country, either presently or in the past.  A table will be set up in the fellowship hall to display these items.  Please place your pictures and/or other items on the table before the church service and you may take them home with you after the reception.  Everyone is invited to join us to honor our veterans.  If you have questions contact Joyce Kruse.

 

BIBLE STICKS FOR THE MILITARY:   At our November 12 reception for our veterans, a  Bible Stick will also be displayed.  A Bible Stick is an audio device of the New Testament and selected Psalms that a military person can listen to even out in the field.  Each device costs $25.00.   A special offering will be collected that day for anyone who would like to contribute to this very worthy cause.
