Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through Jesus.

Worship Focus: In the Gospel of John, chapter 20, we are told, “But these are written that you may
believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
It is because of this truth we are gathered here once again to hear how Jesus Christ has made such a
life possible. It was not an easy feat. The way to our having a life that goes beyond the day to day
routines of this life and which holds certainty beyond this life came at a great price. Jesus had to die,
or we were going to end up dead. This is important because there is a death beyond the physical. The
death Jesus enables us to be free from meant he had to go to war. During this time of Lent we will be
looking at, from various vantage points, this war he entered so we could have life in his name. The
Lord deepen your appreciation for this life you have been given as you hear for the first time or the
how many times the length Jesus was willing to go with you in mind. THE SON OF GOD GOES
FORTH TO WAR.

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
Humility. Do you consider yourself to be a humble person? Does humility equal being downcast? When you think of humility, is there a person who comes to mind as a great example of being humble? Jesus walked this earth with great humility though He had every reason to walk around arrogant. In His humility He did a very unselfish act for all humankind. It is this humility and this act we continue to celebrate today. God keep us humble while also remaining confident in this life in light of the next. Let us worship Him!
Presiding Minister: Pastor Jonathan Kolander
Accompanist: Lisa Thiesfeldt

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
The coming of Christ as the Light of the World is a gospel truth we often celebrate. But what we can fail to remember is that Jesus didn’t just come to bring sight to the spiritually blind but also judgment to the blinded who reject himin unbelief. So this morning we rejoice not just in the light of God’s grace but also in his justice upon the darkness of evil. Therefore we also spur each other on to live in the light of faith God has given us and to turn from the darkness the world offers.

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark’s. We especially welcome our guests who have joined us today. We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
When we pick our own teams we typically pick people who we can count on to help us win. When it comes to getting right with God, God did not pick us to be on His team because we could help get right with Him; He picked us because He knows we are helpless when it comes to gaining our salvation. He picked us because He loves us. He wants everyone to be saved but some want nothing to do with Him. Celebrate the fact God has picked you, that He has given you salvation; pray for His calling to take root in the hearts of others. Our worship today is meant to help us celebrate the gift of faith!
