Welcome to St. Paul’s Lutheran of Fremont, WI.  To our visitors we are glad you have gathered together with us in the name of the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, on this day of rest and refreshment in His Word.  Please take a moment to sign our guest register and pick up one of our burgundy colored “Welcome Home” folders.  Please come and worship with us again.                  

 

AS WE GATHER

Imagine yourself on vacation. Perhaps you are staying at a nice hotel with people you love, enjoying your favorite activities, and savoring some much-needed rest. Now, notice something: while you are resting, others are working. They are cleaning rooms, making beds, preparing your food, serving your drinks. Someone else’s work enables you to rest. So it is with God. Today your gracious Father invites you to enter into His rest, His Sabbath, through the saving work of Jesus. He has already done the work—savor it! Rest in His presence as He serves you with His living and active Word and as He prepares His Table of grace for you to enjoy.

 

Scripture Readings

Old Testament                    Ecclesiastes 5:10–20(We rejoice and rest in the gifts of God.)

Epistle                    Hebrews 4:1–13(There remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.)

Holy Gospel                   Mark 10:23–31 (How difficult it is to enter the kingdom of God!)
