Eighteenth Sunday After Pentecost
September 26, 2021
Personal Prayers to use before worship may be found on pages 10-11.
Opening Hymn: 227, Come, Let Us Join Our Cheerful Songs
Order of Service: The Common Service (Hymnal page 15)
Prayer of the Day:
Lord God, you call us to work in your kingdom and leave no one standing idle. Help us to order our lives by your wisdom and to serve you in willing obedience; through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
First Lesson: Jeremiah 11:18-20*
18The Lord revealed their plot to me so I became aware of it. He showed me what they were doing. 19I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter. I had not realized that they had plotted against me. They were saying:
“Let us destroy the tree along with its fruit.
Let us cut him off from the land of the living,
so that his name will no longer be remembered.”
20But, Lord of Armies, you judge righteously.
You test the heart and mind.
Let me see your vengeance on them,
for I have presented my case to you.
Psalm of the Day: 31 (page 77 in Hymnal)
Second Lesson: James 3:13-18*
13Who among you is wise and intelligent? Let him by his good way of living show that he does things in wise humility. 14But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not boast and lie, contrary to the truth. 15This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but it is worldly, unspiritual, and demonic. 16In fact, where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will also be disorder and every bad practice. 17But the wisdom that comes from above is first pure, then also peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial, and sincere. 18And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who practice peace.
Gospel Lesson: Mark 9:30-37
30They went on from there and passed through Galilee. He did not want anyone to know this, 31because he was teaching his disciples. He told them, “The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into the hands of men, and they will kill him. But three days after he is killed, he will rise.”
32But they did not understand the statement and were afraid to ask him about it.
33They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the way?” 34But they remained silent, because on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. 35Jesus sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he will be the last of all and the servant of all.” 36Then he took a little child and placed him in their midst. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, 37“Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me. And whoever welcomes me, welcomes not just me but also him who sent me.”

Welcome! To the new friends among us, we bid you welcome! To the friends who know us, we renew our welcome. If you are seeking to know Jesus Christ better, we invite you to keep studying God’s inspired, inerrant Word with us. Classes giving Bible information which you will appreciate are offered regularly. Beautiful Savior became a congregation in 1991, and today proclaims the same message of salvation through Jesus Christ alone.
LWMS Rally: The LWMS fall rally will be held October 16 at St. Paul's in Menomonie with registration at 9:00 AM. Mite box money is due to Rose Sexton by October 4.You may put your money in the Mite box on the card display table. Mite box money collected will help support the Thailand Projects and the Caribbean Scholarship Fund. Our mites, like our spare change for New Beginnings, add up to do good things for those who receive them.
Thank You! Thank you for all the donations of cookies and money for the service men and women over in Germany. The first boxes were shipped out on Monday. I also ordered them a case of their favorite coffee. If you still want to donate the last box or boxes will be shipped on 9/30.
Prayer Group/Women’s Bible Study: The Women’s Bible Study Group will meet on October 16 at 12:30. We will continue our study of Ruth. Extra copies will be provided. We look forward to seeing you.
Sound System: The Sound system is installed. If you would like to learn how to operate it, please speak with Pastor. He will set up a training session for anyone that is interested. There will also be a sign-up sheet to set up a schedule for those volunteers to serve on Sundays.
A tremendous Thank You goes to Jerry Sexton and John Schultz for the work they put in to make this happen smoothly.
There are also hearing assistance packs available for use with the sound system. There is either an earpiece or a loop for those with a t-coil hearing aid.
