Prayer of the Day:

 Almighty God, we thank you for planting in us the seed of your Word By your Holy Spirit help us to receive it with joy and to bring forth fruits in faith and hope and love, through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.

First Lesson: Amos 7:10-15*

10Then Amaziah, the priest of Bethel, sent a message to Jeroboam king of Israel: 

Amos has conspired against you in the midst of the house of Israel. The land is not able to endure all of his words. 11This is what Amos says: 
“Jeroboam will die by the sword, and Israel will certainly go into exile away from its own soil.”

12Then Amaziah said to Amos, “You seer, get out of here! Flee to the land of Judah. You may eat food and prophesy there. 13But you must never again prophesy at Bethel, for it is the sanctuary of the king and the national temple.”
 
14Then Amos responded to Amaziah:

I was not a prophet, nor was I a son of a prophet. Rather, I was a sheep breeder and I took care of sycamore fig trees. 15But the Lord took me from tending flocks, and the Lord said to me, “Go, prophesy to my people Israel.”

Psalm of the Day: 78 (page 95 in Hymnal)

 
Second Lesson: Ephesians 1:3-14*

3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places.
 
4He did this when he chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world, so that we would be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ. He did this in accordance with the good purpose of his will, 6and for the praise of his glorious grace, which he has graciously given us in the one he loves.
 
7In him we also have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in keeping with the riches of his grace, 8which he lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. 9He made known to us the mystery of his will in keeping with his good purpose, which he planned in Christ. 10This was to be carried out when the time had fully come, in order to bring all things together in Christ, things in heaven and things on earth.
 
11In him we have also obtained an inheritance, because we were predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in keeping with the purpose of his will. 12He did this so that his glory would be praised as a result of us, who were the first to hope in Christ.
 
13In him, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and in him, when you also believed, you were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit. 14He is the down payment of our inheritance until the redemption of God’s own possession, so that his glory would be praised.

Gospel Lesson:  Mark 6:7-13*

7Jesus called the Twelve and began to send them out two by two. He gave them authority over the unclean spirits. 8He instructed them to take nothing for their journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their money belts. 9They were to put on sandals but not to wear two coats. 10He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that area. 11Any place that will not receive you or listen to you, as you leave there, shake off the dust that is under your feet as a testimony against them.” 

12They went out and preached that people should repent. 13They also drove out many demons. They anointed many sick people with oil and healed them.

(Close Communion: Christians understand Holy Communion as, among other things, a statement of agreement with all the Bible’s teachings. Members of Beautiful Savior or any WELS or ELS congregation are invited. Others are asked to wait to commune with us until after you have had a chance to compare your beliefs with what the Bible teaches. Please speak to the Pastor to set up an appointment.)

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.
 
Lawonn Funeral: Rich Lawonn’s Funeral service will be tomorrow, July 19. Visitation is at 10 with the service at 11 AM. Rich’s body will be laid to rest in Spooner Cemetery and there is a luncheon to follow the committal. The lunch is here at church and the congregation is invited to attend.
 
Voter’s Meeting: Next Sunday will be our Quarterly Voter’s Meeting. It will take place during the Bible study hour. One Item we will be discussing is updating the sound system here in the church.
 
Ladies: The Ladies of Beautiful Savior will have a meeting on July 25 during the Voter’s meeting. We will be voting on some issues that will impact the way established venues and future events are handled. Please plan on attending this important meeting as we look to our Lord to guide us through these decisions.
 
Roof: The roof on the building will be replaced this week beginning Tuesday. If you need to come to church, please be aware of the hazardous conditions. There will be debris and workers working hard to get the job done before next Sunday.
 
Prayer Circle: The Prayer Circle will continue to meet every third Saturday at 12:30. Our next meeting will be August 21. We will also be including a Bible Study on Ruth. The book is on display, with a sign up. If you would like to order a copy please sign up.
 
We look forward to seeing you again!
