Volume 11 Number 31
Jesus and Temptation
°¡ !.': ':. ':|.. '+|.
Did you look at the title above? Those two words, “Jesus”
and “Temptation,” do not seem to go together. What could Jesus
possibly know about temptation? He is the sinless Son of God.
True enough, but Jesus knows a lot about temptation as we will
see in today’s message. In His humanity, Jesus had to deal with
the temptation to sin. Hebrews 4:15 says He “…understands our
weaknesses, for He faced all of the same temptations we do, yet
He did not sin.” As I shared last week, Jesus did not cheat by
bringing His divine attributes into His body. He had to grow,
learn, make difficult choices and face temptation like us. But He
did not sin.
Two things are significant in Jesus being victorious over sin.
First, He knew the Scriptures. That means He knew God’s will
for Him. Second, He chose to allow the Scripture to be His
blueprint for living and He aligned His life with its truth. He
knew and He chose. Sounds simple, but we all know that it isn’t.
Choosing God’s will over our own will always be difficult in this
world, but difficult does not equate to impossible.
Through Jesus, sin’s power to control us has been broken
(Romans 6:6-7) and we are indwelled by the Holy Spirit. In the
power of the Holy Spirit, and with the knowledge of God’s Word,
we can choose to obey rather than sin.
As I have imperfectly walked this path I’ve discovered
something interesting. The more I obey, the easier it becomes to
obey. In like manner, the more I disobey, the easier it becomes to
disobey and sin. God has given His children strong tools to aid
them in defeating temptation, not the least of which is a personal
audience with Him to request His divine power to triumph over
temptation.
Hebrews 4:16 encourages us to “…come boldly to the throne
of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we
will find grace to help us when we need it.” Never forget that
temptation is not only an opportunity to sin, but it’s also an
opportunity to demonstrate the righteousness of Christ through
obedience.
Alpha Is Coming! Will you be there?
What is Alpha?

Newcomers to the church.
People interested in investigating Chris-
tianity.

Caleb’s Cause, a citywide men’s ministry, will be starting
Freedom Groups on Thursday, January 14, 2010, 6:00 to 8:00PM
at Zion Lutheran Church and runs for 16 weeks. The vision of
Freedom Group is freeing hearts of men from the bonds of sexual
addiction through experiencing a new-found relationship with a
redeeming God while gaining more profound relationships with
family, friends and other men. Freedom Groups will be led by
our own Aaron Baugher and Rick Elgersma. Freedom Group
can be a benefit to men at all levels of sexual addictions. This is
a great opportunity for men to find freedom and victory in their
lives and a new intimacy with Jesus! Men, do not miss out on a
chance to find the healing your heart has so long desired. Start
the journey now! Zion Lutheran Church is located at 4300 Beaver
Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50310.
ALPHA FALL SESSION ATTENDEES!
Please join us Monday night, January 11 for the kick-o of the Alpha
winter session. Bring a friend or family member and have them see
you get your certicate for attending the fall session! Start time is

MISSION ONE Reaching others for Jesus Christ
Pat Amsden
Mission Board: Camp Appanoose
Location: Plano, Iowa
What does he do? Pat serves as Executive Director of Camp
Appanoose, overseeing and planning camp programs with
the goal of introducing young people to Jesus Christ and
challenging them for productive service. Located near
Lake Rathbun in rural Plano, the camp is both seasonal and
year-around. Since the summer of ’07 campers enjoy the
spacious facilities of an indoor gym/play area, new kitchen
and cafeteria, restroom and shower facilities.
Praises:
• Camper attendance did not diminish in ’09 in spite of the
economy.
Prayer Requests:
• The camp is facing a short term deficit of nearly $20,000.
• For a volunteer to redesign the camp’s disc golf to be relo-
cated in the spring.
• Floor coverings for the new chapel, etc.
• Hockey equipment, ice skates, compound bows, paint ball
equipment, baseball backstop, 30 stackable chairs.
• Volunteers to finish fencing projects.
• A 30’x40’ storage building for tractors, etc.
• A DVD/PowerPoint projection system for the new chapel.
Alan & Helena, Infant Son
Location: Asia
What do they do? Having been expelled from their former
area of ministry, Alan and Helena arrived in their new area
in September 2009. They are part of a team made up of
three couples and a single man. They look to partner with
like-minded people in their aim to see small fellowships of
Muslim background believers gather and multiply. Alan
serves as an English language teacher. Helena helps with
business and some administration.
Praises:
• Their first months have been encouraging and they sense the
Lord is working powerfully.
Prayer Requests:
• For a church planting movement starting up in the southern
part of their country.
• For opportunities to make contact with people involved in
the church planting movement.
• For the ability to share Christ as Helena and the baby meet
other mothers and women.
• For families that they’ve met to corporately seek the truth in
God’s Word.
Dan & Sylvia Rogers
Mission Board: Mission Aviation Fellowship
Location: Suriname, South America
What do they do?As a missionary pilot/mechanic Dan pro-
vides safe transportation for missionaries, Christian work-
ers, medical workers and patients in rain forest areas where
there is no other means of transportation. The Rogers
have served in Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, and now again
in Suriname. Sylvia, a gifted musician, teaches music and
provides hospitality.
Praises:
• For recent visits with family and friends.
Prayer Requests:
• For safe travel to Suriname this month; good health
amidst climate changes.
• For a steady job for son, Jonathan.
• For Dan as he serves a mechanic on SZV’s fleet and flies
some as well.
• For Sylvia to know how best to serve.
• For the team in Ecuador as they continue in transition.
• Wisdom in planning their future in Nampa, Idaho at MAF
headquarters after furlough.
Steve & Pat
Location: Asia
What do they do? Serving as Area Director, Steve searches
for open doors in a restrictive environment where many
pay a costly price for their faith. Through prayer, meeting
with national and foreign missionaries and serving in eco-
nomic development this couple seeks to reach nine minor-
ity tribal groups who do not yet contain a single believer.
Twenty-three groups have believers who are being used to
reach their neighbors.
Praises:
• For the first 10,000 complete Bibles in a native language
now being printed, legally, in-country.
• Pat’s health continues to improve—riding her motorbike
for the first time in 2 years.
• For a new daughter-in-law.
• For the first-ever new believers among one minority group
during 2009.
Prayer Requests:
• For minority churches in two minority groups that
continued to grow during ’09 amid severe persecution in
the form of beatings and property confiscated. “As the
government cracks down hard on new believers in these
poor and remote areas, the results of persecution include
greater growth, both numerical and spiritual—but at a
sobering cost. Please pray for them, for us and national
partners who reach out to comfort and encourage them.”

Parent/Child Dedication and Pre-Dedication
Class
Parents: If your family would like to
be included in the Parent/Child Dedica-
tion on January 24, please contact
Mary in the Children’s Ministry office
(255.2122 or mtesser@firstfederated.
org) by Monday, January 11.
A pre-dedication class for parents
will be held on Sunday, January 17.
This class will explain the significance
of dedicating your child to the Lord,
provide practical parenting helps, and
offer you an opportunity to get ac-
quainted with our Children’s Ministry. If
this will be the first child you are dedicating
here at Federated, the class is a prerequisite to dedication. If you
have dedicated other children at Federated, you are encouraged to
attend. We believe you’ll benefit from the information and enjoy
the class, too.
First Federated does not baptize infants. We believe that
baptism is a step of obedience made by a person who has put
his faith and trust in Jesus Christ for salvation. Baptism is an
outward expression of what has already occurred in the life of
a believer. In Parent/Child Dedication, parents make a public
commitment to “train up a child in the way he should go,” as God
instructs in Proverbs 22:6. We give thanks for the gift of life and
ask God’s blessing upon parents and children in the hope that
someday each child will trust Jesus as Savior and Lord.

Oering Envelopes
Don’t forget to pick up your
offering envelopes for 2010 in the
auditorium foyer. If you do not
currently use numbered envelopes,
please consider doing so. Counting
and recording financial gifts is faster
and easier -- and you can save yourself the bother of writing
your name and address on the outside of an envelope. Please call
Karen or Cindi in the church office to request that a number be
assigned to you so that you’ll have a box of your own.
Stephen Ministry
Please pray as we begin training for Stephen
Ministers on January 10, 2010!
What is the meaning of the Stephen
Series logo?
The broken person behind the cross
symbolizes that we are all broken people.
The person in front of the cross shows that
it is only through the cross of Jesus that we
can be made whole.
Sympathy
Our sympathy is extended to Norma Harger at the death of her
brother-in-law, Bert Halley, on December 24.
Wedding Reception
Steve and Terry Daugherty are pleased to announce the
marriage of their daughter, Paula, to Lee Sherman. The couple
will be in Fellowship Hall today, from 2 to 4PM, to receive family
and friends. Please drop by at your convenience to greet the new
couple. They have returned from their honeymoon and will be
living in Chino Hills, California.

Think Operation Christmas Child All Year!
Watch those after-Christmas sales for great
stuff to pack in your 2010 shoe box. Look
for small toys and coloring books that are on
clearance racks, as well as hats, mittens, t-
shirts, socks, washcloths and more. Tuck them
away in your own closet until you pack a shoe box next fall or
bring supplies to the church anytime. Our shoe box closet is just
waiting to be filled!
Quilting Class
What could feel better than settling in with a warm quilt
tucked around your legs, unless it could be the warm feeling in
your heart because you are making that quilt for a child who has
little or nothing.
If you would like to learn to make quilts, we have an op-
portunity to learn for free with Linda Hungerford from Lutheran
Church of Hope. This is her 20th class. Get free lessons, free
fabric and lots of free fun and maybe meet a few new friends.
All we ask is that you donate your quilt to Dulce Refugio (Sweet
Refuge) orphanage in Monterrey, Mexico.
Come to Stitchin’ Mission for five weekly classes, beginning
on Tuesday, January 12 at 6:30 in Room 118, across from the
gym. This class is not limited to people from FFC, so bring your
friends. Park in the north lot and use the NE door.
Go to Stitchinmission.org to sign up or call Lois Grove 254-1141.
Your help is needed:
The next Food Pantry Sunday
