Romans 3:23

I believe my sins are forgiven by Jesus’ taking my punishment at the cross. John 1:29; Isaiah 53:5-6; John 3:14-15; Romans 5:9-11

I believe that Jesus’ body and blood are with the bread and wine, and that anyone who sees this as only representing His body and blood receives Him to their harm. Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 11:29-30

God calls me to change my sinful ways, and He works in me as I receive Him here. Romans 8:10; 12:2; Leviticus 22:32; Exodus 31:13; Mark 8:34

I believe this sacrament expresses unity and is to be received alongside those who are united on what the Bible teaches. 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; Exodus 12:48

This instruction isn’t just for young people! How are we - young and old people alike – doing at taking care of our physical bodies where God’s Spirit dwells? No matter your age, do something this week that will make your body stronger or healthier. Choose a healthy snack, drink less, or go for a walk and invite a friend or neighbor to join you. Shared activity makes it more fun and creates an open door for conversation about wellness, including spiritual wellness. This week, honor God with your body…no matter how many years it’s been around! Lutheran Family Service - Learn more at LFSiowa.org or call 712-276-9000

OUR YOUTH MINISTRY may receive an upgrade with an experiment that will start with the pumpkin decorating.  We'll try to start a group for grades K-5, cooperating with the Methodist and Immanuel Lutheran kids (like is now being done with the high school group and the group for grades 6-8).  If you know a family whose kids are NOT connected to a midweek event that joins fun with faith, please invite them, and/or tell them to call Keri Davis or Pastor.

BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES: One tiny little embryo can change your life in a BIG way! Over 600,000 are frozen in time and thousands of these are available for adoption right now if only parents could be found to adopt, carry, birth and baptize them into God’s family. How does it work? In vitro fertilization often results in embryos remaining after a pregnancy. One option available for these extra embryos (little boys and girls) is to donate them to another couple. Embryo adoption allows the family with remaining embryos to select a recipient family for their embryo gift. The adopting family uses the donated embryos to achieve a pregnancy and give birth to their adopted child. If you are a young Christian couple experiencing infertility or desiring to add to your family through adoption and would consider exploring the option of adopting a baby in frozen embryo stage, LFS can help. Contact Kim Laube, LFS’ Director of Life Ministry today at klaube@LFSiowa.org for more information. If you know of a couple who might be interested in learning more, please share this information with them today! Lutheran Family Service - Learn more at LFSiowa.org or call 712-276-9000

BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES: While Facebook and other social media sites are great at reconnecting long-lost classmates and allowing grandparents to keep in touch with their grandchildren from afar, there is also a downside. Marriages – even strong ones – can be threatened when one or both spouses develop (or re-develop) online relationships. Discussing and agreeing on boundaries before problems occur helps safeguard your marriage. Take care of your marriage by taking time to have this conversation today and set (or re-set) healthy boundaries.

BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES: An estimated 18% of Americans suffer from anxiety disorder. If you are one who struggles with this often-debilitating condition, what has been your reaction to reading Philippians 4:6-7? Some read this verse and hear, “stop feeling that way,” or, “real Christians don’t experience anxiety,” which only serves to make them feel extremely guilty as well as anxious. Instead of focusing on yourself with criticism, how about allowing your anxiety to draw you closer to God? Let your feelings serve a reminder of your dependence on Him for all that you need, drawing comfort and confidence from His Word of promise. Instead of focusing on your emotion, fix your eyes on Him who is your strength. When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. (Psalm 56:3)     Lutheran Family Service - Learn more at LFSiowa.org or

BUILDING HEALTHY FAMILIES: When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant, I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. (Mark Twain) Truth be told, parents and their children get along much better when the adolescent years are over. Dr. James Dobson once said that the goal of parenting teenagers is to survive and live to tell about it. If you and your family are navigating the turbulent waters of adolescence, don’t give up. It will get better! Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it.

few pointers.  We would love to have you.  Please join us.

 

Building Healthy Families: I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…. 

Remember this repeating line from the children’s book The Little Engine That

Could? Yesterday and still today the story lines and themes of popular books,

songs, movies or TV shows give ample opportunity to begin a conversation with

a young person that will influence their thinking and faith development. I think I can… provides a great opening for sharing how many times I can’t, but that all things are possible with God. One episode of The Bachelorette provides multiple opportunities to talk with your teen about how to choose a spouse and what’s really important to look for in a marriage partner. Keep your eyes and ears open for opportunities to share Biblical truths and God’s good design for life and marriage with those in your family this week!
