The Church 1 Corinthians 12:12-31 Church/Preschool Office: (847) 931-1520 Email: [email protected] Website: kogonline.org Welcome to King of Glory It is our hope that you find here the love and joy that is a part of our Lord’s worship, and that you share this experience with others throughout the week. Our Worship services are on the screen. If you need a paper copy of the service please see an usher. An adult staffed nursery is available downstairs in the Preschool classroom. Please feel free to bring infants & young children* (ages 6 & under) downstairs anytime during the Bible Study & 10:45am service. Confirmation Sunday - October 26, 10:45am - Please join us as Danielle Kenyon, Rileigh Swanson and Lauren Winsel confirm their faith in Christ Jesus during worship service. They will be sharing what Baptism, King of Glory and their confirmation verse means to them. Their faith paintings will also be displayed. We hope you can make it! Vision Statement King of Glory is a community of believers whose lives and relationships are being transformed daily by the gospel of Jesus Christ and whose desire is to help others experience the same. In this newness of life we are committed to using our God given gifts and talents to serve our neighbors near and far. During the Offering, please fill out the attendance cards and place in offering plate. Statement of Participation in Holy Communion We welcome to the Lord’s Supper those baptized individuals who hold firmly to the belief that Christ’s body and blood are indeed present in, with and under the bread and wine, and that by receiving the body and blood of Christ, as a believer, we receive forgiveness of our sins. Prior to partaking of the Lord’s Supper therefore, one should examine themselves and ask: Am I truly sorry for my sins? Do I believe in Christ and His words in the sacrament? Do I plan with God’s help to try to amend my sinful life and do better? Am I withholding forgiveness from someone that I should instead be granting? In the Lutheran Church, Holy Communion is considered a public confession of the faith taught in this place. If you are a visitor unfamiliar with the teachings of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, we invite you to join us for a blessing at the communion rail. As you kneel, place your right hand over your heart with your head bowed so Pastor will know to give you a blessing. NOTE: For those who might have a special circumstance and cannot use the wine, white grape juice is available in the middle of the tray. Gluten free wafers are also available. Please let Pastor know your need before the service. News & Notes October Mission Project - Haiti 2014: In less than 3 weeks the team of Pastor Doug, Stephanie Henderson, Gary Kessler, John Bero, Brian Bero and Sam Swanson will be departing on mission to Haiti. They will be returning to the Bon Repos Orphanage from November 4-11, to continue the work begun on KOG’s first trip in March of 2013. The team has an ambitious goal of raising $4,000 to complete a variety of projects during their time there. Monies will be used to completely overhaul the plumbing to the 3-story school building connecting it to the new fresh water well, addition of a third water tank reservoir to service the facilities, and general maintenance and repair of existing structures. We are also planning ministry activities and a special outing for the girls at the orphanage. These team members represent all of King of Glory as together we seek to fulfill our mission of serving the world. Please prayerfully consider how you might be able to support this kingdom work.
