Worship Focus: Our risen Lord gives us a very important command as we await his return. It's simple, yet powerful: Love each other as he has loved us. Fulfilling that command brings great benefits for God's kingdom and for those around us, all because of the great love Jesus showed for us and continues to show through us.

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!

Worship Focus: Has it happened to you? You put on a clean shirt and pair of pants only to spill something on the clothes. You hope the stain will come out, otherwise the clothing is ruined. We come into this world stained and there is nothing we can do to remove the stain of sin and the consequences that come with sin. However, we do not have to remain stained people, this thanks to Jesus. What He gives us for the stain works on us every day and enables us to live in God’s perfect heaven. Another reminder of why we are here today to celebrate God’s goodness in our life. Celebrate!

SERMON Based on Revelation 7:9-17

Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School!

Focus of Today’s Service: A big, fancy concept Christians sometimes talk about is Jesus’ “exaltation.” This refers to Jesus now after his resurrection making full use of his divine powers. Today we see that power at work with another post-resurrection appearance to his disciples, as well as his appearance and conversion of the apostle Paul. This morning along with the angels in heaven we celebrate and praise him for his divine power and majesty, and we do so all the more knowing he graciously uses them to bring us even more blessings.
SERMON Based on Revelation 5:11-14

Second Sunday of Easter April 28, 2019

April 28, 2019

Worship Focus: The Easter joy continues though this earthly life may not always be filled with joyous moments. The reason for our Easter joy is solid. God has made sure of that through prophecies, witnesses, tests of time, and more. So during the not so joyous parts of life, and there will be plenty of them over the course of our lifetime, continue to grab hold of the Easter joy which helps us keep the big picture in view. And the way to grab on is by fueling up with the Word of God … which is why we are here. Let us worship our God as He keeps the reason for joy in our hearts.
SERMON Based on John 20:19-31

April 19, 2019

Worship Focus: This is a day of mixed emotions as we pause to remember why Jesus had to die; it was not for anything that He had done wrong, but it has everything to do with what we have done wrong. On the flip side, because He was willing to give Himself in this way, to the point of death, we have forgiveness for all that we have done wrong; no other payment for sin is needed. With that in mind we focus once again on the why, the result, and the what now associated with Good Friday.

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.

WHAT IS MAUNDY THURSDAY? Maundy Thursday receives its name from the Latin phrase novum mandatum, which means, “new command.” It refers to Jesus’ words which he spoke to his disciples on this night, “A new command I give you: Love one another” (John 13:34). The institution of the Lord’s Supper on that night displays the depth of Jesus’ love for us and gives power to the Church to live out his command.
SERMON Based on Matthew 26:26-28

Three Words of Truth: Take and Eat; Take and Drink

Worship Focus: What captures your attention? Is it always something that is good for you to see or hear? A variety of people through face to face contact or social media try to get our attention, not all of it good for us. We need to be discerning when it comes to what gets our attention. Jesus has good reason for us to give our attention to Him. Why this is to be the case, along with how to do this, gets our attention today as we witness Jesus boldly and yet humbly take one step closer to the cross.orship Focus: How could such grace be forgotten and rejected? The people in the Old Testament times did it. The people in Jesus’ day did it. And we can do it, too. So today let us remind ourselves of God’s grace in sending his own Son, Jesus, which is so great that it even (and especially!) reaches out to those who have rejected him.
