Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost October 20, 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 .

Worship Focus: We are truly rich! We might not have the money and the houses and the toys that this world treasures, but we have a treasure that makes everything else seem worthless and meaningless. We have eternal life in Christ Jesus and all of the blessings it brings, now and in the life to come. Let us rejoice then and praise our God for making us truly rich with heavenly treasure
