January 7 Worship Service Notes

ST. PAUL LUTHERAN CHURCH  |  Lake Mills, Wisconsin

The Epiphany of Our Lord                                        January 6-8, 2018

Welcome to Worship

We welcome and thank you for joining us for worship today! In our service we gather before our almighty and saving God to offer him our worship and praise. That is our service to him.  But we also assemble to hear God’s holy and powerful word and celebrate his life-giving sacraments. Through these means, God strengthens our faith and walks us ever closer to our eternal home with him – that is how God serves us.

Mothers and small babies seeking some privacy are welcome to use the nursery room at the end of the hall past the family restroom.  Ask an usher for assistance.

 Out of courtesy for others and respect for our services, please turn off your cell phone.  Large Print Hymnals are available. Ask an usher.

Service Notes for Today

A brilliant light illuminates the west; wise men are drawn to its brilliance and journey to Bethlehem. This star resides in the sky, but the greater infant Light dwells with his mother, Mary, and Joseph. This Light breaks the powers of darkness forever. This Light destroys sin, death, and the devil. This Light dawns upon the world and uncovers the will of God. And it is God's will that mankind be saved through the death and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ, the very Light of the world. From afar, wise men travel to worship the Light of the world, offering their best. You are invited along this day to Bethlehem, so you too can worship with the Wise Men.
