First Immanuel Lutheran Ministries ~ River of Life Saukville Campus
8:00 am Traditional Worship - Saukville
AS WE GATHER One day, if we are not alive at the second coming of Christ, we will all find ourselves in our last hour of life. Jesus illustrated that we can simply place our lives into the hands of our Heavenly Father, who created us, sent His Son to save us, gave us of His Holy Spirit that we would have faith and life. Each day we should commend ourselves into the care and keeping of the Lord.

“Jesus Has Come and Brings Pleasure”………………..
Jesus has come and brings pleasure eternal,
Alpha, Omega, Beginning and End;
Godhead, humanity, union supernal,
O great Redeemer, You come as our friend!
Heaven and earth, now proclaim this great wonder:
Jesus has come and brings pleasure eternal!
P: In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen
P: The Lord calls us to confess our sins with the promise that He will forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. The psalmist says, “Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us” (Psalm 62:8). We take this time of silence to confess our sin to the Lord.

(A time of silent confession)

P: The psalmist also says, “O God, save me by your name, and vindicate me by your might. O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.” We confess together:
C: “O Lord, be gracious to me; heal me, for I have sinned against you!” (Psalm 41:4)
P: “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us” (Psalm 103:8-12). You are forgiven in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
C: Amen.

P: My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
C: Why are you so far from saving me, from the words of my groaning?
P: O my God, I cry by day, but you do not answer,
C: and by night, but I find no rest.
P: Yet you are holy,
C: enthroned on the praises of Israel.
P: In you our fathers trusted;
C: they trusted, and you delivered them.
P: To you they cried and were rescued;
C: in you they trusted and were not put to shame.
P: But I am a worm and not a man,
C: scorned by mankind and despised by the people.
P: All who see me mock me;
C: they make mouths at me; they wag their heads;
P: “He trusts in the Lord; let him deliver him;
C: let him rescue him, for he delights in him!”
P: Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit;
C: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.

P: Gracious Lord, give us the sure and certain confidence that You have won the victory over sin and death and give eternal salvation to everyone who believes. Confident in what Jesus has accomplished, give us the determination and courage to live out our faith each day. In Jesus name we pray.
C: Amen.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

“Jesus Has Come and Brings Pleasure”………………..
Jesus has come! Now see bonds rent asunder!
Fetters of death now dissolve, disappear.
See Him burst through with a voice as of thunder!
He sets us free from our guilt and our fear,
Lifts us from shame to the place of His honor.
Jesus has come! Hear the roll of God’s thunder!

Sermon - “Jesus - the Word of Confidence”

Sermon Reflection:

“Jesus Has Come and Brings Pleasure”……………….…..
Jesus has come as the mighty Redeemer.
See now the threatening strong one disarmed!
Jesus breaks down all the walls of death’s fortress,
Brings forth the pris’ners triumphant, unharmed.
Satan, you wicked one, own now your master!
Jesus has come! He, the mighty Redeemer!



Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven; give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen.


“Jesus Has Come and Brings Pleasure”…………………….…..
Jesus has come as the King of all glory!
Heaven and earth, O declare His great pow’r,
Capturing hearts with the heavenly story;
Welcome Him now in this fast-fleeting hour!
Ponder His love! Take the crown He has for you!
Jesus has come! He, the King of all glory!
