Volunteer with GoServ Global at the Minnesota State Fair
GoServ Global is looking for volunteers to sit at their booth and share about SafeT Homes during the Minnesota State Fair. The fair runs August 22-September 2nd so they are in need of a lot of volunteers! The shifts will run from 9 am to 3 pm and 3 pm to 9 pm. Please contact Megan Dennis if interested at megand@zionclearlake.org

Mark Schumacher Benefit
August 18th at The Dock will be a benefit to raise money for Mark Schumacher, beloved husband of Beth Ann Schumacher to help them raise money as he suffers from a debilitating illness known as Anterior Horn Cell Disease.
Anterior Horn Cell Disease is a motor neuron disease similar to ALS and is characterized by progressive weakening of every muscle in the body. Like ALS, this disease is terminal when the muscles necessary to keep the body working become too weak to do so. Like ALS, there is no cure. Mark has reached the stage where he is now confined to a lift chair, wheelchair, or bed-ridden. Breathing has become difficult, talking is resricted to short phrases, and he tires very quickly. Despite all of this, Mark retains his lively spirit and good attitude. Help us lift up and come alongside a family that we care so deeply for by attending and supporting this wonderful time of a benefit in his name!
The party kicks off at 6-7 PM with an Ice Cream & Dessert Bar for a free will offering! After that, plan on attending the concert at 7 PM in The Dock featuring some of Mark's favorites from Zion Lutheran Church Worship Team and the River City Barbershop! Tickets for the concert are sold at the Zion Lutheran Church Office and on Sunday morning services, as well as at the Clear Lake Chamber Office for only $10! Plan to purchase a raffle ticket at the door for a chance to win some amazing prizes such as Chamber Bucks, hand made quilts, Iowa State Gear, restaurant gift certificates, massages, and so much more! The raffle tickets are $5 for one or five tickets for $20.
There is also a Pampered Chef Fundraiser where 30% of the sales goes directly to the benefit fund. You can order online at www.pamperedchef.com/party/Schumacher2019. You can also call or text Sherry Wilcox Wharam at (641)425-7267 to place an order

Lutheran World Relief Kits
It is time to put together out LWR Kits for the fall shipment. Last spring a shipment of quilts, School Kits, Personal Care Kits, Baby Care Kits, and Fabric Kits that traveled to Peru. L.W.R. Staff distributed the quilts and kits to 30,600 women, men, and children all across the country.
There is a great need for these kits around the world. In refuge camps they may be all they have. There is a list of what items are needed in each kit at the display table at The Sanctuary. You may complete a whole kit or just bring individual items and we will put them together for you.
We have bags at church so you may put items in a plastic bag and we'll do the rest. Thank you so much for helping provide these items for your brothers and sisters around the world. God Bless You - Women's Action Team.

Please keep the following in your prayers
Bob Langfald is in the hospital
Shirley Holstad is in the hospital
Dean Molinsky is in West Campus
Prayers for farmers and good weather
All of those who are battling cancer and their families
All those with debilitating illness or injury and their families
Strength To Dance - Song Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Breaking through the dark, in my life
As You shine Your light on me
Shining like the sun, in my heart
And I'll never be the same

[Chorus]
You give me strength to dance, back to life again
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises
You give me strength to dance, I can lift my hands
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises

[Verse 2]
Holding me together, in Your arms
You are always by my side
Rescued by the love, that You give me
Lord, You hear me when I call!

[Chorus]
You give me strength to dance, back to life again
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises
You give me strength to dance, I can lift my hands
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises
Sing Your praises

[Bridge]
Tried everything that I could to win
Living in the past I was deep in sin
Hiding every flaw that was in the dark
Running from the man that I shoulda, coulda, woulda been
Searching for the truth till You came and found me
Hope, love, peace now that's all around me
Healing every scar, breaking through the dark
Freedom in Your arms, now I'll never stop dancing

[Chorus]
You give me strength to dance, back to life again
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises
You give me strength to dance, I can lift my hands
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises
You give me strength to dance, I can lift my hands
On and on, all my days, sing Your praises
Sing Your praises!

In my wrestling and in my doubts
In my failures You won't walk out
Your great love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea, woah
You are the peace in my troubled sea

In the silence, You won't let go
In my questions, Your truth will hold

My lighthouse, my lighthouse
Shining in the darkness, I will follow You
My lighthouse, my lighthouse

You will carry me safe to shore
Safe to shore
Safe to shore
Safe to shore

I won't fear what tomorrow brings
With each morning I'll rise and sing
My God's love will lead me through
You are the peace in my troubled sea

My lighthouse, my lighthouse
Shining in the darkness, I will follow You
My lighthouse, my lighthouse

Living Hope - Song Lyrics
Expand
[Verse 1]
How great the chasm that lay between us
How high the mountain I could not climb
In desperation, I turned to heaven
And spoke Your name into the night
Then through the darkness, Your loving-kindness
Tore through the shadows of my soul
The work is finished, the end is written
Jesus Christ, my living hope

[Verse 2]
Who could imagine so great a mercy?
What heart could fathom such boundless grace?
The God of ages stepped down from glory
To wear my sin and bear my shame
The cross has spoken, I am forgiven
The King of kings calls me His own
Beautiful Savior, I'm Yours forever
Jesus Christ, my living hope

[Chorus]
Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope
Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope

[Verse 3]
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Then came the morning that sealed the promise
Your buried body began to breathe
Out of the silence, the Roaring Lion
Declared the grave has no claim on me
Jesus, Yours is the victory, whoa!

[Chorus]
Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope
Hallelujah, praise the One who set me free
Hallelujah, death has lost its grip on me
You have broken every chain
There's salvation in Your name
Jesus Christ, my living hope...

[Outro]
Jesus Christ, my living hope
Oh God, You are my living hope

[Verse 1]
The head that once was crowned with thorns
Is crowned with glory now
The Savior knelt to wash our feet
Now at His feet we bow

[Verse 2]
The One who wore our sin and shame
Now robed in majesty
The radiance of perfect love
Now shines for all to see

[Chorus]
Your name, Your name
Is victory
All praise, will rise
To Christ our king
Your name, Your name
Is victory
All praise, will rise
To Christ our king

[Verse 3]
The fear that held us now gives way
To Him who is our peace
His final breath upon the cross
Is now alive in me

Your name, Your name
Is victory
All praise, will rise
To Christ our king
Your name, Your name
Is victory
All praise, will rise
To Christ our king

By Your spirit I will rise
From the ashes of defeat
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
In Your name I come alive
To declare Your victory
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
By Your spirit I will rise
From the ashes of defeat
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
In Your name I come alive

The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
By Your spirit I will rise
From the ashes of defeat
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
In Your name I come alive
To declare Your victory
The resurrected king, is resurrecting me

[Verse 4]
The tomb where soldiers watched in vain
Was borrowed for three days
His body there would not remain
Our God has robbed the grave
Our God has robbed the grave

Your name, Your name
Is victory
All praise, will rise
To Christ our king
Your name, Your name
Is victory
All praise, will rise

In Your name I come alive
To declare Your victory
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
By Your spirit I will rise
From the ashes of defeat
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
In Your name I come alive
To declare Your victory
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
By Your spirit I will rise
From the ashes of defeat
The resurrected King, is resurrecting me
In Your name I come alive
To declare Your victory

Kingdom Thinking
Pastor Jason Miller // Discipleship Pastor

Jesus’ greatest miracle was saving, redeeming and restoring rebellious people back to God.

Scarcity Thinking, or the “Poverty Mentality” is the false belief that no matter what you have you will never have enough.

Never Enough - The Greatest Showman “All the stars we steal from the nightsky Will never be enough Never be enough Towers of gold are still too little These hands could hold the world but it’ll Never be enough Never be enough”

Jesus is going to use a physical miracle to uncover the spiritual lies we believe and the truth of His Kingdom.

John 6:3-6
Then Jesus went up on a mountainside and sat down with his disciples. The Jewish Passover Festival was near. When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, “Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?”

John 6:7 Philip answered him, “It would take more than half a year’s wages to buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!”

Philip does what many of us do, he focuses on the human limitations, the scarcity, and not on the abundance of Jesus.

John 6:8-9 Another of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, spoke up, “Here is a boy with five small barley loaves and two small fish, but how far will they go among so many?”

John 6:10-11
Jesus said, “Have the people sit down.” There was plenty of grass in that place, and they sat down (about five thousand men were there). Jesus then took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted. He did the same with the fish.

Jesus uses a physical miracle to reveal a spiritual lie and truth by taking the scarce resources of a child to reveal His abundant power and provision.

John 6:12-13
When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, “Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.” So they gathered them and filled twelve baskets with the pieces of the five barley loaves left over by those who had eaten.

God’s Kingdom is one of generous, over the top, bigger than you could ever imagine, lavish abundance! Why? Because you can never out give God!

Scarcity Thinking effects All Aspects of Our Lives (Physical, Emotional, Relational, Mental, Financial, Sexual, and Spiritual)

The Kingdom of Man is ruled and driven by scarcity, the fear of never having enough, but the Kingdom of God is one of abundance and life.

I want to give a holy invitation and challenge to those of us who are followers of Jesus. Because we believe in a God of abundance and not scarcity, instead of letting people fall from grace, we help them fall into the undeserving, abundant grace of Jesus?

Spotting the 10 Lies of Scarcity Thinking!
#1 Scarcity: I don’t have enough; Abundance: I have more than enough
#2 Scarcity: I need to hoard, stockpile; Abundance: I’m called to freely give
#3 Scarcity: Craves power and control in service of self; Abundance: Uses power and control in service to others
#4 Scarcity: Life happens to me, I’m a victim; Abundance: Life happens with me, I am victorious
#5 Scarcity: Avoids risk; Abundance: Looks for opportunity
#6 Scarcity: I’ve earned this; Abundance: I’m blessed with this
#7 Scarcity: Fueled by indifference; Abundance: Fueled by compassion
#8 Scarcity: Feels hopeless; Abundance: Is hopeful
#9 Scarcity: How much will it cost? Abundance: How much could it grow?
#10 Scarcity: Sees life people as competition; Abundance looks for Collaboration
It’s impossible to hold more, receive more, give more, experience more when your hands, heart and eyes are closed. Jesus wants you to renounce and repent of the lies of scarcity and believe in the God’s abundant provision.

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, the Power and the Glory,
Forever and ever.
Amen
