5:00 p.m.

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: A new year, and with it comes plans and hopes and new beginnings. Tonight we pause to reflect so we can go into the new year with godly focus. We remember who we are by nature, what God has done for us, and what God promises to us not only in this life but in the life to come. May God bless our meditation this evening so we can glorify him in the year that is about to begin.

Presiding Minister: Pastor Groth

Thanksgiving Eve

Thanksgiving
Thankful throughout the Year
Charles Dickens said that we’re somewhat mixed up here in America. Instead of having just one Thanksgiving Day each year, we should have 364. He jokingly said, “Use that one day just for complaining and griping. Use the other 364 days to thank God each day for the many blessings he has showered upon you.”

364 Days of Thanksgiving

Area Reformation Service

November 4, 2018

Area Reformation 4:00 PM Service

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.

Focus of Today’s Service: It is only fitting to celebrate the Reformation which took place in the days of Martin Luther as there is still a need for reformation given the climate in the church. Work-righteousness continues to creep into the church, at times it is not so subtle. There is the temptation to rely on the Biblical experts and church programs than on the Word itself for the work God has given to His Church. What, then, is the message which needs to come from our churches? God enrich our trust in Him yet again as we zero in on His message for us and through us. Thanks be to God! Let us worship Him.
