Lutheran Worship Part 5: The Hymn of Praise (Gloria in Excelsis or This is the Feast)
In the Kyrie, we pray, “Lord, have mercy upon us.” We know that, in Christ, God has shown His mercy to us. Thus, in the next section of the service we rejoice with the angels in singing to the triune God with special emphasis on the Son. On the night of Jesus’ birth, the angels offered their song of praise: “Glory be to God on high, and on earth peace, goodwill toward men.”
Article XX - Of Good Works - Part 3
For devils and the ungodly are not able to believe this article: the forgiveness of sins. Hence, they hate God as an enemy, call not upon Him,
26 and expect no good from Him. Augustine also admonishes his readers concerning the word “faith,” and teaches that the term “faith” is accepted in the Scriptures not for knowledge such as is in the ungodly but for confidence which consoles and encourages the terrified mind.

November Bible Readings
Fall Festival - Our Fall Festival was a success. Thank you to everyone who donated items or time to bring this event to the Newark community. We’re hoping it helped to make our presence more well known in the community!
All Saints Day 11/7 - The annual festival of All Saints Day is on Sunday, November 7. In the Missouri Synod, it is not a day to remember martyrs and heroes of faith since they already have their special days. Rather, it is a day to remember instead all of those who have passed on with the sign of faith whose lives and deaths were mostly ordinary but who are nonetheless important to us.
Thanksgiving Eve Annual Pie Social 11/24 - The annual Thanksgiving Eve Pie Social is Wednesday, November 24, at 6:00 p.m. Please either bake or buy your favorite pie and bring it to share with others.
Thanksgiving Eve Service 11/24 - After our pie social on Wednesday, November 24, we will have our annual Thanksgiving Eve Service.
Answers to October Bible questions
Is "the church" a building?
The church may not be a building, but it is at a particular place at a particular time. It is is physical. If you're worshipping on Facebook only are you actually worshipping? Read more on this from Pastor Mark Surburg by clicking the link below.
