Zion's school students, faculty, & staff come together to hear God's Word of grace during their midweek chapel service. Pr. Craig Meissner of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Steger, is our guest pastor today.
In this service we observe Holy Cross Day. Within that, we also consider the "cost" along with the "gain" that Christians of all eras realize. The sermon title is The Foolishness of the Cross based on 1 Cor. 1 & John 12.
We once again worship the Lord who has released the prisoners "with anxious hearts." Listen to hear how an owl with its incessant hooting on my boyhood farm ties in with our sermon based on Isaiah 35:4-7.
In this devotion we'll consider the 5 "laments" to be found in the Book of Lamentations. In the 5th "lament," we'll see what happents to our joy due to our sin. But... as is often the case, God turns things around in Psalm 30. We consider that too!
The Thursday Morning Ladies' Bible Class is soon to wrap up the current "Broken Way" study. We will begin a new study on Philippians entitled "JOY" on September 23rd. We meet in the Conference Room every Thursday from 9:30am-11am. Please let Karen Rock know if you would like to attend. [(708) 601-9863 to text or call, or email@example.com] Books are being ordered; they are $14.31 each. This will be an 8 week study. We hope you will join us!
Using the pen of Zechariah, God tells His people that He "whistles" for them. Does that strike you as odd? God... whistling! But, there it is in 10:8! We discuss the amazing implications of that in this devotion!
It’s “Back to School” time! And… if the kids attend school to learn, just why – exactly – don’t the adults do the same? So, adults YOU are invited and encouraged to come to the Adult Bible Class that will take up again after a brief summer hiatus! Our first study of the year will be Paul’s letter to the Colossians. Please prayerfully consider attending this study. Besides the learning, there is great fellowship among God’s people as they gather together around Christ Jesus and His Word of Life. The class meets in the Conference Room on Sundays at 8am for 45 minutes. See you there!
