In Mark 10, we read a very cringeworthy account of two brothers who were truly tone-deaf to what Jesus was trying to teach them. Ironically, Jesus' other disciples got angry at brothers not because of their selfishness, but because they hadn't thought of their scheme first. Amid all this selfish glory-seeking, Jesus was selflessly making his way to the cross for them. The following devotion is adapted from last Sunday's sermon on Mark 10:32-45 - How the Selfish Become Selfless. For the full text of the sermon, click on the title!
Lessons for your own personal Bible reading as you head into the weekend:
- Genesis 8:15-22

Lutheran Women’s Missionary Society (LWMS) Rally – All ladies are invited to attend the upcoming fall rally this Saturday, October 12 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Port Orange. The rally begins at 10 am, with registration opening at 9 am. If you plan to attend and if you would like to carpool, please contact Bobbie Craig ASAP!
Divine Call Meeting – The first voters’ meeting to call our next Principal and Grades 6-8 teacher is planned for Tuesday, October 15 @ 7 pm. All voting members are strongly encouraged to attend. May the Lord of the Church richly bless this Call process!
Welcome Home Sunday - October 20 - Make sure to leave this Sunday open on your calendar! Don't schedule any appointments. Don't plan any vacations for that Sunday. Instead, plan to be here at King of Kings on Sunday, October 20 @ 10 am! Why? On October 20, we are celebrating Welcome Home Sunday. We will talk about the importance of having the support of a Christian community. We hope to have 100% of our King of Kings members in attendance. Let’s pack the house! Let’s see what that looks like, when every member comes together. We plan to have Finger Food Fellowship in the Family Life Center afterwards! So be sure to set Sunday, October 20 aside so you can join your brothers and sisters in Christ here at King of Kings!
Finger Food Needed! – Help us provide finger food, heavy hors d’oeuvres, etc. for our Finger Food Fellowship on Sunday, October 20! Sign up here on our digital sign-up sheet or on the sign-up sheet in the entryway at church!
Learn the Reason for the Hope That You Have! – Sundays @ 9 am!
Lies We Believe – Much of our unhappiness and emotional struggles are caused by the lies we tell ourselves. Unless we identify our lies and replace them with the truth of God's Word, spiritual growth will stall and emotional health will be impossible. Join us Sunday, October 20 @ 9 am in the Family Life Center for our new Bible study series - The Lies We Believe...and The Truth We Need.
Greek Fest Parking – Once again King of Kings will be offering parking for Greek Fest from November 1-3. We will be charging $5/car and all receipts will go towards bus transportation for school activities. Sign up in the entryway at church for one or more 2-hour blocks!
Gift Card Drive – At King of Kings, we regularly get requests for help with groceries, gas, and other basic needs. Occasionally, we also have school families with such needs. Through October, we will be collecting gift cards of $25 or less at the church office to enable us to better help these families in need. We are looking for gift cards from local grocery stores (Publix, Winn-Dixie, Aldi, etc.), Walmart, and local gas stations. For gas station gift cards, please try to purchase cards that limit the purchase to food or gas. For more info, please reply to this e-mail!
Meditations Needed – WELS Prison Ministry is looking for used copies of Meditations to provide to prisoners under our spiritual care. The copies need to be in good condition. If you have any copies to donate, please drop them off at the school office.
Growing in Hope – Why does it matter that Jesus is my Savior? Does the Bible really apply to my life? Where can I get more of what I heard today? How can I join King of Kings? We are planning to begin a new session of our Bible Information Class soon to provide answers to those questions and many more. If you are interested in taking part in this course, please reply to this e-mail or contact Pastor!
Every Member Visits - Pastor Gumm is still visiting all of our members! If you have not scheduled a visit, please be sure to reply to this e-mail to schedule your visit ASAP!
An Encouraging Word: And he who provides seed to the sower and bread for food will provide and multiply your seed for sowing, and will increase the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you may be generous in every way, which produces thanksgiving to God through us. (2 Corinthians 9:10-11)
