Examination and Confirmation Sunday, June 21, 2020 10:45 a.m.

We say with the psalmist, whether here on campus or viewing online, “I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the LORD’” (Psalm 122:1).

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 through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
Today we celebrate the wonderful grace of our God and his work in the hearts of his children. God has brought these confirmands to faith in Christ and has caused them to grow in the knowledge of his Word and of his grace. Now we all get to witness the work of the Holy Spirit in their hearts and minds as they confess the truths of God’s eternal Word and promise their faithfulness to them. May this day usher them into a close, life-long relationship with their Savior, and may it be a refreshing experience for the rest of us that brings us to a greater appreciation of the truths God has given us.

The Service of Darkness Friday

The Service of Darkness Friday

April 11, 2020

ONE DAY THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING: GOOD FRIDAY

On Good Friday, the Christian Church remembers the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus. Although our remembrance is solemn, it is not a message of gloom. It is a message of adoration toward Jesus, the Lamb of God. On this day almost 2,000 years ago, Jesus offered up his life as the atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world. The Service of Darkness—often called Tenebrae(Latin for “darkness”)—guides us to reflect deeply on Jesus’ sufferings for our sake as well as the great cost of our forgiveness. In the chancel burns a seven-fold candelabrum in the shape of a crown of thorns. The candles will be extinguished as the service progresses. At the end of the service, the final candle is removed from the chancel, leaving the sanctuary in tenebrae for silent prayer. The service is closed by a loud sound, called the strepitus(Latin for “crash” or “loud noise”). The strepitushas been interpreted by worshippers in a number of ways. Some see it as a symbol to remind us of the stone that was rolled in front of Jesus’ tomb to shut it; others see it as a statement of the cataclysmic nature of Christ’s sacrifice; still others view it as foreshadowing the rending of Christ’s tomb at his resurrection on Easter morning. The final candle, which is still burning, is returned to its place at the end of the service before the congregation departs the church, leaving a symbolic glimmer of gospel hope pointing forward to Easter morning amidst the darkness that necessitated Good Friday.

Maundy Thursday – New Command

Maundy Thursday – New Command

Maundy Thursday – New Command
April 9, 2020

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.

The word ‘Maundy” is of Latin origin. It has to do with the mandate Jesus gave His disciples (see John 13:34). He who is love wants us to love one another.

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!
