Psalm 84 - “What a Lovely Church!”
On Sunday, October 14th, Lord and Savior Ev. Lutheran Church in Crystal Lake will celebrate the congregation’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!
II. Here we are blessed to serve the Lord!
Psalm 145 - “A Table Prayer with an Attitude!”
The next Sunday, October 21st, we will highlight table prayers as we consider Psalm 145:15 &16. Those two verses highlight a prayer that some of us use, besides the "common table prayer." The theme uses the words "an attitude.” “An Attitude” often is viewed in a negative sense, but here we are thinking about the proper Christian attitude of gratefully receiving our food and all that the Giver of all blesses us with. We will certainly ponder how "the eyes of all look to You" ...mindful of God's open hand, His perfect timing, and how He satisfies every living thing! The theme that week will be: "A TABLE PRAYER WITH AN ATTITUDE!"
