Calling all HLHS Families and Supporters!

The State Fair is almost here, and we are in need of volunteers to fill about 100 shifts at our concession stand inside the Five Points Bank Arena.  We have a new menu this year and have expanded our products beyond our traditional (yet very tasty) fresh pie!  Please contact Leslie Probasco for the current list of available shifts at lprobasco@heartlandlutheran.org.  This is a fun activity, so grab your friends and extended family and sign up as a group.  Volunteers will receive a free gate ticket for the day they volunteer at the booth.  Spend a few hours supporting the school and the rest of the day exploring the fair without having to pay the $10 gate entrance fee!

Habitat for Humanity Info

Christ Lutheran Cairo is going to be doing two build days in September, the 16th and the 23rd.

We will be working on concrete both of those days. The 16th we will be pouring the foundation walls and on the 23rd we will be pouring the floor of the crawlspace. We will need 5-10 people for each volunteer day. We will begin work at 8am and finish up close to noon. The address for the build day is 117 W 7th Street.

Both of these are things that the group from Christ Lutheran have done before and we are really, really excited to have your church come back to help with this again!

If you are interested in helping with this build please contact Lee Echtenkamp at 308-850-8816

Readings from Holy Scripture

Old Testament Reading…………. Isaiah 56:1, 6–8

1Thus says the Lord: “Keep justice, and do righteousness, for soon my salvation will come, and my deliverance be revealed. 6“And the foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord, and to be his servants, everyone who keeps the Sabbath and does not profane it, and holds fast my covenant—7these I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.” 8The Lord God, who gathers the outcasts of Israel, declares, “I will gather yet others to him besides those already gathered.”

 

Epistle…………… Romans 11:1–2a, 13–15, 28–32

1I ask, then, has God rejected his people? By no means! For I myself am an Israelite, a descendant of Abraham, a member of the tribe of Benjamin. 2God has not rejected his people whom he foreknew. Do you not know what the Scripture says of Elijah, how he appeals to God against Israel? 13Now I am speaking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry 14in order somehow to make my fellow Jews jealous, and thus save some of them. 15For if their rejection means the reconciliation of the world, what will their acceptance mean but life from the dead? 28As regards the gospel, they are enemies of God for your sake. But as regards election, they are beloved for the sake of their forefathers. 29For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. 30Just as you were at one time disobedient to God but now have received mercy because of their disobedience, 311so they too have now been disobedient in order that by the mercy shown to you they also may now receive mercy. 32For God has consigned all to disobedience, that he may have mercy on all.

 

Holy Gospel……………………… Matthew 15:21–28

21 Jesus went away from there and withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22And behold, a Canaanite woman from that region came out and was crying, “Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is severely oppressed by a demon.” 23But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came and begged him, saying, “Send her away, for she is crying out after us.” 24He answered, “I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.” 25But she came and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, help me.” 26And he answered, “It is not right to take the children’s bread and throw it to the dogs.” 27She said, “Yes, Lord, yet even the dogs eat the crumbs that fall from their masters’ table.” 28Then Jesus answered her, “O woman, great is your faith! Be it done for you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed instantly.
