10:45 am Pentecost, Baptisms, New Members

Worship Focus: So many things in this world try to sap our peace and joy. But thankfully, God has given us his life-giving Spirit who works through the Word to bring a peace that never ends and a joy that can never be taken away. With the Holy Spirit working in our hearts, we take comfort in knowing and being reminded of the everlasting life he imparts through Christ. Worship Focus: Where is He now? Who? Jesus, that is who. He is still around, just not as visible as He once was. But no worries, we will get to see Him visibly. For us in Christ, this is a time we eagerly look forward to; while those who do not look to Him for salvation, that is a different emotion. As mother’s do not want to lose sight of their child(ren), so much more Jesus does not want us out of His sight nor to have us leave His sight for all eternity. This is just one important truth connected to the Ascension of our Lord. (Ascension is Jesus returning to heaven 40 days following His rising from the grave, just as He said would happen. In heaven He continues to look after all our needs with our eternity in mind.)

Worship Focus: How well do you show your connection to Jesus? Last week we looked at how we’re connected to Jesus through his Word and because of that we see a change within in us. Now this week we’ll look more at how that life-giving connection shows itself to others. Because Jesus loved us, we are able to love each other. May God bless you today as you ponder how you can better show Christ’s love to those around you.

Worship Focus: What do you know about sheep? If sheep did not have a shepherd, what would happen to the sheep? It is no different when it comes to our spiritual well-being. There is a reason why the Bible refers to you and me as being like sheep. We sheep need a shepherd; and we have the ultimate shepherd we need in Jesus. We do well to follow the encouragement given today: listen to His voice. Blessings on your listening to Him, today and every day.Worship Focus: A man rising from the dead is a pretty unbelievable thing. Yet, as we saw last week, God provides proof that Jesus is the Christ and did just that. That powerful message is what brought us to faith in Christ and his resurrection, and now because of it we go out into the world as confident preachers of Christ’s life and life in Christ

Second Sunday of Easter April 8, 2018

April 8, 2018
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: What is faith? At the core, it is trust. Who or what we trust in matters. We all trust in someone or something. To trust in ourselves to meet all our needs will lead to our falling short, same with trust in any imperfect human being. Objects only have the ‘life’ we give to them. The best, and only viable, place to have our trust is in Jesus. Today’s Service expounds on why this is to be, along with how such trust comes about.
Presiding Minister: Pastor Jon Kolander
Music Today: Rosemarie Boushek and Jenny Kolander
