THE ORDER OF WORSHIP
Worship Focus: There are a good number of people vying for our attention from family to work, from commercials to social media. How do we determine who to give our attention? As we contemplate this, keep in mind another person who is to have our attention. Jesus is to have our attention. He gets it through the Bible. The Bible has answerswe need, and we do benefit from such when we pay attention to what Jesus has to say. Stay connected to Jesus Serving at Worship!

Presiding Minister: Pastor Jonathan Kolander
Musical Accompanist: Adrienne Bengel
Choir Director: Rosemary Bouchek

Adult & Teen Bible Studies—Today at 9:30 a.m.

Worship Focus:
Was it the best year ever? Or was it the opposite due to health or job or the loss of a loved one? Through the good and the not good there is at least one constantin this life. Our Bible Readings for this Worship Service of Reflection and Renewal point to what that constant is in life. The Lord refresh you through His Word by keeping you focused on the Christ, our Light and our Salvation.

Worship Focus: What puts the ‘merry’ in ‘Merry Christmas’? Presents are nice to receive, and to give out. Family gatherings are special times. It is more than such, isn’t it? What makes Christmas a time to be merry is the message associated with CHRISTmas. Jesus came to earth as promised. He has won our needed peace with God. The peace we have been given and are to share with others makes this a merry time of year, a feeling that can carry on throughout the year. We gather today to hear such good news yet again, and to show our thanks. Merry Christmas!

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.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving

November 27, 2019

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on both the earthly aspects of life as well as the spiritual. The Lord truly gives us our “daily bread,” and He has also provided for the needs of our soul. To Him, then, be all our praise today and every day through our voices and our actions. Our overall theme for this Thanksgiving Service is: The lord does great things ... focus on your response.

Reformation Sunday
November, 3, 2019

Welcome to St. Mark's Lutheran Church & School
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we welcome you to St. Mark's for this special area Reformation Worship Service. We pray you will be strenghtened by the good news about God's grace, love, and forgiveness to us through Jesus. Indeed we are saved by GRACE ALONE, FAITH ALONE, SCRIPTURE ALONE.

Worship Focus: When you think of strength, what do you picture? Does God come first to mind? He is described in the Bible as being our strength. What does that mean exactly? Can't we rely on our own strength? Is God's stremgth any better than another's? God's strength comes not just in His ability to do all things; it also comes in His message of forgiveness, a forgiveness that is ours by grace through faith. This Service celebrates God's strength by His grace through His gift of faith which comes through His Scriptures. Let us worship Him!
