Children’s Christmas 8:00 am Service

Children’s Christmas 8:00 am Service

December 15, 2019

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.
Prayer: Gracious Lord God, as travelers in this sinful world, the search for peace seems like an impossible dream. We see unrest all around, in our country, in our schools and workplaces, and in our homes. Our minds are often filled with restless thoughts that rob our joy and happiness. Today our children present a message filled with your blessing of peace; peace that came to earth long ago in the Bethlehem manger. This was not an earthly peace, which is only fleeting, but heavenly peace that sets our hearts at rest. Send your Holy Spirit into our hearts and show us the true peace between you,our perfect God,and our sin-filled souls. Teach us to treasure the peace that is ours through the sacrifice of Jesus, our Savior, who is the Prince of Peace, and in whose name we pray. Amen.

Midweek Advent Service - December 11, 2019

Midweek Advent Service - December 11, 2019

December 11, 2019

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: God acts intentionally! For what purpose? Jesus Himself summed it up when He said in Luke 19, “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost. ”We come to know from the Word of God, and by looking in the mirror of our lives, that we have messed up before God, before others, and even with ourselves. Yet, we are not left to deal with the messes on our own. As John the Baptist pointed out, we have the Lamb of God (Jesus) who has come to take away the sins of the world (your sins included). Messing up should lead us to repentance, that is a confession of our sins; and along with that comes, by the Holy Spirit, a trust in the news our sins have been forgiven. This then is to be followed by fruits of repentance, that is, a 180 change from the direction we were headed. Think about this change connected to repentance and the Lamb of God as we prepare our hearts and minds for another Christmas, and beyond. This year’s theme is: The Blessed Challenge of Advent –Repentance

Second Sunday in Advent

Second Sunday in Advent

December 8, 2019

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: “Repent!” is the cry of Advent. Why? “The kingdom of heaven is near!” As Jesus’ first appearance drove God’s people to reflect upon their lives and remove their deeds of darkness, so his second comingdrives our reflection. He is coming in judgment—andthe judgment upon darkness will be severe. So we’re lovingly warned: “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.”

THREE WORDS OF TRUTH

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: Do you like surprises? We definitely don’t like surprises that come with a negative result. When health fails, for example, it may not always be a surprise but rather a missing of warning signs. When Jesus brings this present world to an end, it should not really be a surprise to us. While not having the exact day, we have been given warning signs; along with ways to be prepared for that Day. This is the encouragement before us today. So dear friends, stay awake.
