Fifth Sunday of Easter – Cantate

28 April 2024


Jesus Promises to Send His Holy Spirit, the Helper

Though Jesus has departed from us visibly to the right hand of the Father who sent Him, yet this is to our advantage. For Jesus—who is Lord over all creation, who intercedes for us before the Father, who is preparing a place for us in heaven—has sent the Helper, the Spirit of Truth (John 16:5–15). “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights” through Jesus Christ (James 1:17). The Holy Spirit helps us by taking what is Christ’s and declaring it to us. In the Word of truth, the Spirit works repentance and delivers to us the forgiveness of sins, the righteousness of Christ, and victory over the devil. For the ruler of this world is judged and defeated by the cross. Through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, we have been brought forth to new life in Him who is the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. Confident of our resurrection with Christ we confess, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid” (Is. 12:2).

YPI families!  We’d like to celebrate the end of the academic year/beginning of summer with a gathering at Fowler Park on Saturday, May 4th. We’re going to meet at the large playground, on the opposite side of the lake. Arrive anywhere between 3:00/4:00, we’ll grill some hot dogs around 5:00. There are some great hiking and biking areas so bring your bikes and your walking shoes! Maybe even a baseball glove and ball for some pitch-and-catch! We’re looking forward to a great afternoon/evening enjoying fellowship and God’s wonderful outdoor creation! In the event of inclement weather, the celebration will move to the Schulz home. Please RSVP to the Facebook event or to Amy Cracraft (573-200-6021 or amycracraft@gmail.com).

Confirmation Banquet May 19 immediately following Divine Service. Mark your calendars and make your reservation on the bulletin insert to join us in celebrating our confirmands!
