Worship Focus:How many doors do you have in the place you call home? Do you ever get mixed
up on what door you need when looking for something specific? Or, open the closet door when you
meant to go outside? Doors serve a purpose. And speaking of doors, t
here is only one which leads to heaven. Which one, and how do we know for certain that is the correct door? Can we buy it? What is
the door and how we get to open it will be central to our worship today.

Worship Focus:There will be division. We know what Jesus says: Because of the gospel, there will be division between God’s people and the world. However, that fact really hits home when that division really hits home. When the ones we love the most are those with whom we have division because of the gospel, it can be tough to handle. It also means we might be tempted to take the side of our loved ones over and above Jesus. But this morning we get to look at the comfort the Word bring seven as it divides.We get to remember that though we might experience division with other people, through his suffering our Savior has secured peace with God himself.

Focus of Today’s Service : Do you still use an alarm clock? If so, why? How do you view that alarm clock ... is it a
friend or a foe? Alarm clocks do serve a valuable role, and at times such are annoying but for good reason ... so you
are not late to school or work or an appointment. God’s Word also serves as an alarm clock f or our soul. We need it .
We will explore the why behind our need for His Word in this role of alarm clock. Careful, don’t hit the snooze button.

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost August 25, 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: Jesus says today in the Gospel: “ Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions. ” How true! There’s so much more to life thanks to Christ and the eternal life he’s given us. However, we often fall into the temptations of greed and abundance and forget about being rich toward God. So today we get a needed, stern, and loving reminder from our Savior that our earthly wealth is meaningless without him .

Worship Focus: Do you agree with the sayings ‘Never too old to learn something new” or “I learn something new every day”? Do we get to a point in life when it can be said ‘we know it all’? That would be quite a feat. While in a sense we never stop learning , it is also important to put into practice what we learn. Our School has been teaching valuable life skills for 50 years. Today we focus on some of those taught life skills with the reminder to not just learn them but to follow them as well. Happy learning! Blessings on the doing!

Serving at Worship Presiding Minister: Pastor Brock Groth Musical Accompanist: Lisa Thiesfeldt Ushers: 8:00 Terry Drennon, Tim Hull, Jack Hopping , Jack Fox 10:45 Rich Baker, Ed Russell, Robert Vosberg, Jim Well.

How do you know if you have ‘made it’ in this life? Is it determined by how
much money you have in your bank account? Is it by how many followers you have on a social
media platform? Is it by having a spirit of contentment from day to day? The Bible provides insight
for our consideration when it comes to defining what is a successful or fulfilled life, as well as what
we are to do with the answer it provides. To God be praise!
