The Ascension of Our Lord

A place to call home: 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:
Crucified, he won our forgiveness. Risen, he proved it. Ascended, that message 
spreads throughout the world. Jesus is seated at the right hand of God, reigning 
over all things for his name and for his people. Such a Savior who guides all 
things is also the One who graciously gives his Church blessings to carry out its
work in his name. Today we celebrate that there is no God like our exalted Christ, 
who gives his people Ascension blessings.

Worship Focus:
Today we celebrate the wonderful grace of our God and his work in the hearts of his
children. God has brought these confirmands to faith in Christ and has caused them to grow in the knowledge
of his Word and of his grace. Now we all get to witness the work of the Holy Spirit in their hearts and minds
as they confess the truths of God’s eternal Word and promise their faithfulness to them. May this day usher
them into a close, life-long relationship with their Savior, and may it be a refreshing experience for the rest of
us that brings us to a greater appreciation of the truths God has given us.

IT IS FINISHED...FOR YOU HE WALKED THE PATH TO CALVARY
April 2, 2021 ... 7:00 PM

GLORIFY HIM ...GROW IN HIM ...GO WITH HIS GOSPEL

A place to call home:
St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School
In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, welcome home. We especially welcome to our house of worship 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. We say with the 
Psalmist, whether here on campus or viewing online, “I rejoiced with those who said to me, ‘Let us go to the house of the 
LORD’”(Psalm 122:1). May the Lord continue to help us grow in His grace and knowledge as we hear, speak, and sing His holy Word.

Worship Focus:
This is a day of mixed emotions as we pause to remember why Jesus had to die; it was not for anything that He had done wrong, 
but it has everything to do with what we have done wrong. On the flip side, because He was willing to give of Himself in this way, 
to the point of death, we have forgiveness for all that we have done wrong; no other payment for sin is needed. With that in mind 
we focus once again on...the why, the result, and the what now associated with Good Friday. 

Prayer for Worship: Dearest Jesus, how can we thank You for the price You paid that we might be at one with the Father? Thank You 
for the sacrifice of Yourself on the cross as our Substitute. Firm up our faith as we humbly remember on this Good Friday Your cross
and tomb. Amen.

Maunday-Thursday April 1, 2021

WHAT IS MAUNDY THURSDAY?
Maundy Thursday receives its name from the Latin phrase novum mandatum, which means, “new command.” It refers to Jesus’ words which he 
spoke to his disciples on this night, “A new command I give you: Love one another” (John 13:34). The institution of the Lord’s Supper 
on that night displays the depth of Jesus’ love for us and gives power to the church to live out his command.

A place to call home: St. Mark’s Lutheran Church & School 

In the name of our Savior, Jesus Christ, welcome home.  We especially  welcome to our house of worship 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:  What shall ‘I’ do with Jesus? During this Lenten Season we will explore various answers to this important question. What Jesus has done on your behalf, on behalf of the entire world population of all time, is not to be taken lightly or treated like ‘we have heard this all before.’

The message is indeed relevant, needed just as much now as it was for previous generations. What do you do with Jesus, not just during Lent but every day of your entire life here on earth? Your answer is important. God help us see and appreciate His powerful display of mercy; and then celebrate the fact He did this for you, and for others --- tell them about it.
