COVER-TO-COVER THROUGH THE BIBLE
Week 98: Hebrews 8-12
Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost
November 19, 2017
Sharing Christ – Changing Lives! Good Shepherd is a Christian family committed to responding to our Lord’s love and command to “make disciples of all nations” by sharing the Good News of Christ through our words and actions.
Welcome: We would like to extend a warm welcome to all our visitors this morning. We pray that God will touch your life through your worship with us today and that you will come back soon. Please sign the “Welcome Folder” distributed during the offering, and if you are a visitor, also include your address and phone number, so that we may have an opportunity to contact you.
The 8:00 Divine Service and 10:46 Worship are projected on the screen.
Outlines of each service are included in this folder.
10:46 WORSHIP gets its name from Acts 10:46 where it mentions that the apostles “heard the Gentiles speaking in tongues and praising God” – which could well describe this time of worship where God is present and his people are responding. 10:46 WORSHIP blends the best of both ancient tradition and modern music and instruments recognizing the ongoing, present-day work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Beginning at 10:46 AM also suggests a more casual worship where you’re invited to come just as you are.
WELCOME TO THE LORD’S TABLE
Today we celebrate the Lord’s Supper at the 8:00 a.m. Service.
The Lord’s Supper should reflect our unity in faith and doctrine (see 1 Corinthians 1:10 & 10:17). St. Paul urges us, “One should examine himself before he eats of the bread and drinks of the cup” (1 Corinthians 11:28).
In order to receive the blessing of this Sacrament, ask yourself the following questions:
ALL WHO COMMUNE, please record your attendance in the “Welcome Folder” (located in each pew). If you are communing with us for the first time, please speak to the Pastor prior to the service, if possible.
AT COMMUNION, an Elder carries the tray of individual cups and the Pastor invites you to drink either from the cup you have taken or from the common cup, which he carries. Cups in the center circle of the trays contain non-alcoholic wine for those who prefer it.
Church’s Website – www.goodshepherdfrankfort.org is the place to go to keep current about events at Good Shepherd and review last Sunday’s service and sermon. Check it out and let the church office have your comments and suggestions.
Sunday Adult Bible Study 5-week series from Lutheran Hour Ministries called: “A Man Named Martin – Part 3: The Movement.” From Luther's 95 Theses in 1517 to the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, God was at work in the Reformation. Fierce debates over Scripture, church doctrine, and late medieval church practice led to theological positions articulating salvation as God's grace in action, with man being left to add nothing to his own salvation. We will see how the Reformation transformed European society and, eventually, left a profound impression around the globe. This video-based study meets in the fellowship hall from 9:30-10:30AM November 5-December 3.
Faces of the Reformation – Since the past is best explored through the people who lived it, meet 5 men and women who had some part to play in the reformation. Each Sunday between October 29th and November 26th, an insert will introduce you to one of the faces of the Reformation (Martin Luther, Katharina von Bora, Philipp Melanchthom, Jan Hus, Ulrich Zwingli).
Today’s Altar Flowers are in loving memory of Ray Chaffee from Donna Chaffee on the one year anniversary of his death.

Life Quote “A child who has been adopted by loving parents knows from the outset that he is loved because he knows they chose him. He was not simply accepted because he was conceived and born into their midst but was sought out to become their child. God is like that with us! ‘Although it may appear outwardly that we make our way toward God, the joyful and wonderful truth is that it is God who comes to us’ (Matthew the Poor).” Abbot Tryphon, Vashon Island, Washington – A Life Quote from Lutherans For Life • www.lutheransforlife.org
Spending regular time in God’s Word is what Jesus’ disciples do and is important at Good Shepherd. The main goal is not to get through the Bible, but for the Bible to get through to us. We follow a plan that takes us through the Bible from cover-to-cover in two years. Each Sunday a text is selected from the previous week’s reading – usually along with two other texts that have some connection. You’re invited to follow the weekly reading plan. A special devotional Bible called The Today’s Light Bible is available, if interested, that not only is divided into daily readings but also adds a brief explanation and application each day.
Today’s Light Reading Plan – Week 99
STEWARDSHIP IS THE WAY WE LIVE
OUT OUR CALLING AS DISCIPLES.

you are truly My disciples” (John 8:31).
