As Christians (and specifically as Missouri Synod Lutherans), we believe that it is through Jesus Christ alone that we have the hope of eternal life. We believe that we are sinners in need of forgiveness and that in the Lord’s Supper, God gives that forgiveness, strengthens our faith, and strengthens our union with Him and each other (Romans 3:23, Matthew 26:26-28). As Christians, we also believe that as we come to the Lord’s Supper, we are making a commitment to amend our sinful lives with the help of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 2:19, Romans 8:6). GUESTS AND VISITORS: Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed or confirmed, or who hold to a doctrinal position differing from that of this congregation and the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked first to speak with the pastor (1 Corin- thians 11:27-29). At Trinity we practice Close Communion as adopted by our Synod in Convention. ALCOHOL CONTENT IN WINE: The “red” wine in the chalice and in the outer rings of the communion cup tray contains alcohol. The “white” wine in the center of the tray is de-alcoholized wine (alcohol nearly 100% removed). You may use the red or white wine in the tray but please remember that the chalice has only “red” wine with normal alcohol content.

A: The Lutheran ChurchMissouri Synod has never understood or applied the historic practice of close[d] Communion in such a way as to mean that only LCMS members are permitted to commune at LCMS altars. The official position of the Synod is that not only are members of other Lutheran churches with whom we are in altar and pulpit fellowship invited to commune with us, but also that in certain extraordinary cases of pastoral care and in emergencies members of churches not in fellowship with us may be given Communion. The Synod stated, for exam- ple, in 1986 "that pastors and congregations of The Lutheran ChurchMissouri Synod continue to abide by the prac- tice of close Communion, which includes the necessity of exercising responsible pastoral care in extraordinary situa- tions and circumstances" (1986 Res. 3-08 "To Maintain Practice of Close Communion").

    Church Announcements For The Week of March 6, 2016

    THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION AT TRINITY: The Lord’s Supper is celebrated in this congregation in the belief and confidence that in this Sacra-

    ment, Christ is truly present, giving us His body and blood, in, with and under the forms of bread

    and wine (1 Corinthians 10:16, Mark 14:22-24). As Christians (and specifically as Missouri

    Synod Lutherans), we believe that it is through Jesus Christ alone that we have the hope of eternal

    life. We believe that we are sinners in need of forgiveness and that in the Lord’s Supper, God gives that forgiveness,

    strengthens our faith, and strengthens our union with Him and each other (Romans 3:23, Matthew 26:26-28). As

    Christians, we also believe that as we come to the Lord’s Supper, we are making a commitment to amend our sinful

    lives with the help of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 2:19, Romans 8:6).

    GUESTS AND VISITORS: Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their

    harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet

    instructed or confirmed, or who hold to a doctrinal position differing from that of this congregation and the Lutheran

    Church - Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked first to speak with the pastor (1 Corin-

    thians 11:27-29). At Trinity we practice Close Communion as adopted by our Synod in Convention.

    ALCOHOL CONTENT IN WINE: The “red” wine in the chalice and in the outer rings of the communion cup tray

    contains alcohol. The “white” wine in the center of the tray is de-alcoholized wine (alcohol nearly 100% removed).

    You may use the red or white wine in the tray but please remember that the chalice has only “red” wine with normal

    alcohol content.

    Q: Typical question asked by visitors: Can only LCMS members take communion at Trinity Burr Ridge? A: The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod has never understood or applied the historic practice of close[d]

    Communion in such a way as to mean that only LCMS members are permitted to commune at LCMS altars.

    The official position of the Synod is that not only are members of other Lutheran churches with whom we are in altar

    and pulpit fellowship invited to commune with us, but also that in certain extraordinary cases of pastoral care and in

    emergencies members of churches not in fellowship with us may be given Communion. The Synod stated, for exam-

    ple, in 1986 "that pastors and congregations of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod continue to abide by the prac-

    tice of close Communion, which includes the necessity of exercising responsible pastoral care in extraordinary situa-

    tions and circumstances" (1986 Res. 3-08 "To Maintain Practice of Close Communion"). Please see

    www.lcms.org for more information.

    Chorus 1 ~ Your grace is enough, Your grace is enough,

    Vs 2 ~ Great is Your love and justice God of Jacob

    You use the weak to lead the strong

    You lead us in the song of Your salvation

    And all Your people sing along

    Chorus 2 ~ Yeah your grace is enough, Heaven reaches out to us,

    are reminded today that even in the midst of sorrow, we are

    called to celebrate the love of God and the joy that can be

    found only in Christ crucified, who reigns in glory now. May

    this service’s readings from Scripture, sermon and hymns all

    serve to help you to remember that we are people of the

    St. Matthews is very thankful to all the LWML members for the grant they have pro-

    vided to repair inside the Lutheran Center by paying for paint, resurfacing the floor,

    The Kevin Reynolds directed movie tells the story of a high-ranking Roman military tribune Clavius (Joseph

    Fiennes) who remains set in his ways after serving 25 years in the army. He arrives at a crossroad when he's

    tasked to investigate the mystery of what happened to Jesus (Cliff Curtis) following the Crucifixion. Accompa-

    nied by trusted aide Lucius (Tom Felton), his quest to disprove rumors of a risen Messiah makes him question

    his own beliefs and spirituality. As his journey takes him to places never dreamed of, Clavius discovers the

    truth that he's been seeking. This is a fictional story with parts based on facts from the Bible.

    Fourth Sunday in Lent – The father’s compassionate embrace of his dirty, manure-

    smelling, rebellious son portrays Christ’s compassion for all sinners (Luke 15:20). Those

    crushed by an abortion in their past will identify well with “manure smelling.” We need to

    proclaim to them and be for them Christ’s compassionate embrace. Prayer: Father, use us as

    Your arms to embrace repentant sinners. Amen.
