The Fifth Sunday after Easter
May 14, 2017 
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 that your soul will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through his Son, Jesus Christ.
 
 
Worship Focus:  As we move further from Easter Sunday and closer to Ascension Day, our attention turns to Jesus’ words to his disciples in John 13-17, preparing them for his physical departure from them after his resurrection. The words of Jesus that we will hear today emphasize that faith in the risen and ascended Jesus is the only way human beings can approach God now and dwell with him eternally.

Worship Focus: The fourth Sunday of Easter is traditionally known as Good Shepherd Sunday. In chapter ten of John’s Gospel, the Good Shepherd chapter of the Bible, Jesus said, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. … The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. … I give [my sheep] eternal life.” With these words, Jesus links the metaphor of him as our good shepherd with his resurrection and our future resurrection. Today’s service explores this metaphor in light of the Easter resurrection gospel.
