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

Children’s Christmas 10:45 am Service

December 15, 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.
Prayer: Gracious Lord God, as travelers in this sinful world, the search for peace seems like an impossible dream. We see unrest all around, in our country, in our schools and workplaces, and in our homes. Our minds are often filled with restless thoughts that rob our joy and happiness. Today our children present a message filled with your blessing of peace; peace that came to earth long ago in the Bethlehem manger. This was not an earthly peace, which is only fleeting, but heavenly peace that sets our hearts at rest. Send your Holy Spirit into our hearts and show us the true peace between you,our perfect God,and our sin-filled souls. Teach us to treasure the peace that is ours through the sacrifice of Jesus, our Savior, who is the Prince of Peace, and in whose name we pray. Amen.

Presiding Minister: Pastor Brock Groth
Musical Accompanist: Marty Puckett
Children’s Accompanist: Lisa Thiesfeldt
