Psalm 23, 1 Peter 2:19-25, John 10:1-10

Psalm 23: Life with the Good Shepherd

Psalm 23 is one of the most beloved passages in Scripture. It brings comfort and hope whenever it is read. David paints a picture of God’s shepherd heart for us. He desires us to know times of quiet waters and green pastures, but He knows that they won’t last in this fallen world. We will journey through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, and we will be surrounded by enemies. Ultimately we will find rest in His house forever. During the month of June we will begin our summer respite with an in-depth look at Psalm 23 and find rest and encouragement for our souls.

Ezekiel 37:1-14; Acts 2:1-21; John 15:26-27, 16:4b-15

We have all failed Jesus in our own ways. We have vowed to leave a besetting sin behind only to find ourselves standing before Jesus the following Sunday asking His forgiveness again. Imagine denying Him three times only to discover that He was right behind you when you said it. What would your next conversation with Jesus be like? Today we get a glimpse of the amazing love and mercy of our Savior as we see Jesus and Peter walk together after breakfast on the shores of Galilee.

Acts 1:12–26; 1 Peter 4:7-11; Mark 10:35-45

Through our Ministry Clarity process, leaders of Immanuel were challenged to begin seeing where God is leading us by getting a clearer understanding of who we are as the people of God and what values undergird all that we do at Immanuel. We came to understand that the values that uphold all of our ministries are Praising, Praying, Connecting, Serving, and Learning. During this series we will be exploring these values together to come to a better understanding of how they impact life and faith at Immanuel. This week we explore serving. Serving is one of the most important ways we live out our faith. God created us to give and receive love through serving. Jesus demonstrated the value of serving by serving each of us with His very lift. Today we celebrate the centrality of service in the life of Immanuel.

Joshua 22:1-6; Acts 20:17-35; John 21:1-14

Following Jesus during His earthly ministry was pretty straightforward. They went where He went and joined in what He was doing. Following Jesus after Easter was a bit more challenging. This month we will join the disciples in their encounters with the risen Savior in the Gospel of John. Today we will discuss Jesus’ breakfast at the shore with His disciples and how He continues to teach and encourage them.

Jeremiah 31:1-6; Acts 10:34-43; Matthew 28:1-10

Death is our common enemy, but God has chosen to do battle with our enemy and has given to all the same victory won by Jesus Christ. The veil of death cast over all is now removed. Death, and all its terror and power, has been answered by the resurrection of Jesus once for all. We participate in this victory in the banquet our Lord has prepared. First in the Holy Communion of His crucified and risen flesh and blood and then in the marriage feast of the Lamb, which has no end. Though for now we wait by faith for Him to bring to consummation all things, we wait as a people saved by His blood and marked for everlasting life; so let us be glad and rejoice in His salvation!
