St. Mark’s Lutheran Church and School (WELS, Citrus Heights, CA)

21st Sunday of End Time - Reformation November 3, 2019

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. 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 t emptations 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 .

Focus of Today’s Service: What is freedom? If you are in debt, you are not really free. If you work for someone else, even if you own your business, you are not really free. Laws and Conscience remind us we are not as free as we might think. There is one freedom which truly is freeing, and it is free to us; that is the freedom (forgiveness) Jesus has for us. God help us live the life He has given us in and with this freedom. His Truth does indeed set us free. What that looks like is our focus.

Presiding Minister: Pastor Kolander
Musical Accompanist: Lisa Thiesfeldt
