Old Testament Reading – Jonah 3:1-5,10
Epistle – 1 Corinthians 7:29-31

The Holy Gospel according to St. Mark, the first chapter.
Now after John was arrested, Jesus came into Galilee, proclaiming the gospel of God, and saying, “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”
Passing alongside the Sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew the brother of Simon casting a net into the sea, for they were fishermen. And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men.” And immediately they left their nets and followed him. And going on a little farther, he saw James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, who were in their boat mending the nets. And immediately he called them, and they left their father Zebedee in the boat with the hired servants and followed him.

Join us on Sunday, January 28 at the 8:00 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. service.
On January 28th, 1968, Zion dedicated its new church building to the glory of the triune God. Fifty years later, we will gather on January 28th during both worship services to rededicate our building, remember our past, and give thanks to God for our future.

A special breakfast will be held in the fellowship hall during the Sunday School hour, starting at 9:15 a.m. Everyone is welcome … there will be no adult or children’s Sunday school on this day.

COMING JANUARY 2018 -- A New Women's Bible Study at Zion

A New Women's Bible Study
Tuesday evenings -- January 30 through March 20th; 7:15 - 8:45 p.m.

Calling all ladies! Join us in January as Zion begins another topical Bible study -- "Forgiveness: Received from God, Extended to Others" by Donna Pyle. Forgiveness is always personal. It’s incredibly difficult to do. But it’s never optional. Learn more in this eight-week women’s Bible study.

This marks the 20th topical study that Zion ladies (and friends outside the congregation) have participated in since 2011. Our ladies group averages three studies per year. Each session provides a wonderful opportunity for study, fellowship, and relationship building.

Is God calling you to join our fellowship in 2018? We'd love to have YOU!
Please sign up in the narthex and order the $15 workbook. Questions?

Tonight's Reading:
Ezekiel 39: 1-10,17-29
Romans 7:21—8:17
So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin. There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God's law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs--heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
