Psalm 23: “The Lord is my Shepherd - That’s Enough!”
On Sunday, October 7th, Lord and Savior Ev. Lutheran Church in Crystal Lake will highlight the classic "Good Shepherd" psalm, Psalm 23, in its services. This Psalm has the memorable opening verse: "The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want." (Psalm 23:1). Pastor David Carlovsky will use the whole psalm in the service, as a good reminder and review of some great, comforting scriptural truths. The sermon will highlight the fact that the opening verse itself is a great title on its own: "THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD--THAT'S ENOUGH!”
Our Ministry’s Anniversary: “What a Lovely Church”
The following Sunday, October 14th, is the church’s 45th anniversary. 2018 marks the 45th anniversary of our first exploratory worship service in October of 1973. This year also marks the 20th anniversary of what came to be called Little Lambs of Lord and Savior Preschool, which began in 1998. For that Sunday, Pastor Carlovsky will turn to selected verses from Psalm 84, particularly its opening verse: "How lovely is your dwelling place, O LORD Almighty!” Pastor Carlovsky’s sermon theme will be “What a Lovely Church” — mindful that not only are the congregation’s location on the prairie, and its buildings, “lovely,” but the word also means "loved" or "beloved."
Thus, the sermon theme for that day will be "WHAT A LOVELY CHURCH!"
I. Here we are blessed to be served by the Lord!
