The Word is Worship
Worship is the Word
A Higher Things® Confirmation Retreat

August 7-8, 2020

Hosted by:
Immanuel Lutheran Church
40201 270th St
Dimock, SD 57331

Jesus says, "Abide in My Word, and you are truly My disciples." You know it's important for
Christians to be "in the Word," but how? The surprising answer has been in front of you all your
life: in church. Lutherans have a treasure we sometimes take for granted, a treasure that gives
us more Bible on any given Sunday than most Christians will ever hear. That treasure is our
services, which are almost nothing but the Bible, through and through.
Come hear Chaplain Sean Daenzer, Director of Worship for The Lutheran Church—Missouri
Synod, open up the Scriptures in the most likely of places—your Sunday morning routine—
and learn how everything in our hymns and services is causing the Word of Christ to dwell
richly in you for life.
$40 per person covers all Friday night snacks, Saturday breakfast, lunch and snacks, all
presentations and activities, and overnight lodging at Immanuel Lutheran Church. This retreat
is intended for confirmation youth, so any youth entering into or currently in confirmation are
welcome no matter the grade or age. Download registration forms, additional retreat
information, and register online at You may also contact
Pastor Randy Sturzenbecher at (605)391-0428 or to email you a
registration packet. Groups should register online or RSVP by July 31st.



Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

John 14:6

The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The LORD is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.

Psalm 28:7-8

Go on up to a high mountain,  O Zion, herald of good news; lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good news; lift it up, fear not; say to the cities of Judah,  “Behold your God!”

Isaiah 40:9

Behold, my servant shall act wisely; he shall be high and lifted up, and shall be exalted.

Isaiah 52:13

And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up
