Holding their 65th Biennial Synod Convention this week @Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN
So much of life is without clear answers. You wonder what you’re going to do with your life, where your life is going, if you’re making the right choice or if someone will help you when you need it. Even spiritually, we all have questions that weigh on our hearts like the question “Why?” On our own, those answers can’t easily be found. Thankfully, Jesus has answers. The following devotion is adapted from Sunday's sermon on Luke 9:51-62 - Will I Follow Him? For the full text of the sermon, click on the title!
Lessons for your own personal Bible reading this week:
- Genesis 39:6-12, 16-23
- Hebrews 11:24-26
- Luke 9:18-24
Coming Soon @ King of Kings
Work Day – Join us this Saturday, August 3, starting @ 8 am, as we get the campus ready for the 2019-20 school year. Besides smaller tasks around the campus, we will be re-mulching the playground area to provide a safe environment for our students. Many hands make light work and the more volunteers we have to help with the mulch, the quicker we can complete this task. Wheelbarrows, dirt rakes, and shovels will be needed for this task. If you plan to attend, please contact Randy Cochran or Kevin Zastrow!
Still Enrolling! (Grades K-8) – Enrollment is open for Grades K-8 for the 2019-20 school year! If you or someone you know would like to find out more about school, please contact Principal Randy Cochran or the church office! Register today @ VisitKoK.com/Enroll!
Still Enrolling! (Pre-K for Ages 3-4) – If you would like to enroll your 3 or 4-year-old in our Preschool for 2019-20, please contact Pre-K Director Lisa Gumm or contact the church office! We are also offering free VPK for all 4-year-olds!
Joint Board Pre-Call Meeting – The members of the Church Council, Board of Youth Discipleship, and Board of Elders are reminded and encouraged to attend the joint meeting on Tuesday, August 6 @ 6 pm. We will discuss the pre-Call items necessary to begin the process for calling our next Principal/Grades 6-8 teacher.
School Supplies – If you would like to donate school supplies for the upcoming school year, please check out the list in the church entryway. These items will be donated to students attending King of Kings. Please drop off your items no later than Sunday, August 11. Thank you for your assistance!
King’s Camp 2020 – Your King’s Camp Committee has been working hard this summer to reformulate King’s Camp for Summer 2020. This is going to be a major summer outreach endeavor for our congregation. So we invite you to start thinking how you can use your gifts, abilities, interests, time, and treasures to support the “new” King’s Camp. We are planning to offer the following weeklong, half-day camps:
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 in August 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 visiting all of our members—and there are still King of Kings families and individuals who still need to schedule visits! Please be sure to reply to this e-mail or contact Pastor to schedule your visit this summer!
An Encouraging Word: All the ends of the earth will remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations will bow down before you. For the kingdom belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations. All the rich of the earth will eat and bow down. All who go down to the dust will kneel before him—those who cannot keep themselves alive. Descendants will serve him. For generations people will be told about the Lord. They will come and proclaim his righteousness to a people yet to be born—because he has done it. (Psalm 22:27-31)
