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

Twelfth Sunday after Pentecost August 23, 2020

August 23, 2020


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 through Jesus.

Worship Focus: : “Did God really say?”  That temptation has been around as long as faith has been.  God tells 
us something, and we have faith that it’s true—we believe!  But because of sin we always have to wrestle with 
doubt.  Doubt in God’s care naturally brings with it fear and despair and wavering, especially in the midst of 
trials.  God’s answer to such doubt: his power.  He’s proven it numerous times in the past, and he’ll prove it 
again with everything he’s promised us.  He’ll follow through—he always does!  It’s confidence in that fact that 
guides the Christian to answer doubt with faith.
