GLORIFY HIM ... GROW IN HIM ... GO WITH HIS GOSPEL
6th Sunday of Easter
May 9, 2021

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:
What the world needs now, always has, is more love –a love rooted in God’s love
for the world and a love put into action. It can be argued that love with only words
is not legitimate love. We note again today what God in love has done for us, and what He rightly 
so expects to see of us who know of His love. May the Lord refresh and refuel us with and through His love. 
Let us worship Him!

Presiding Minister: Pastor Jonathan Kolander
Musical Accompanist: Lisa Thiesfeldt

We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

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.

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:
If Jesus is indeed risen (and he is!), then that means big things not just for our future but for our present as well. 
When God calls us to faith in Jesus, we’re connected to him like a branch to a vine, and when you’re connected to a 
powerfully-risen Savior that means your heart is powerfully risen to live a new life of love.
This week and next we’ll celebrate that new fruit-filled life of love and the connection that makes it possible.
He is risen!  And so are we.

Worship Focus:
What comes to mind with the word ‘sheep’? Would this animal be a fitting description of yourself? Why or why not? 
The Bible refers to us as sheep; we will talk about why in this Service. It also talks shepherds, and one particular 
Shepherdis to be our focus not just today but everyday; again, we will see why this is to be the case as we get into 
our worship. God help us hear, and follow, the voice of the true Shepherd –He does exist.Enjoy your worshipof the Lamb!

We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
Last week we saw Jesus provide proof of his resurrection so his disciples could know for certain they had peace with God.  Today we see Jesus provide proof so his disciples can know their role as witnesses.  While you and I were not there to see Jesus on that first Easter, we too are witnesses of his resurrection because we’ve been given exactly the same thing the disciples used: the Word.  And as we’ll celebrate today, the Word has a very effective message!

We pray you will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness through Jesus.

Worship Focus:
Really? He rose from the dead? Are you serious? There have been many doubts that have arisen among us humans as we consider a 
risen Jesus. Even one of Jesus’ own disciples struggled with it before seeing him with his own eyes! Yet regardless of whether 
we doubt it, the truth remains: Jesus is risen. And with that truth comes another truth we’ll celebrate today: since Jesus is 
indeed risen, no doubt about it we do indeed have peace with God.

Worship Focus: 
How often do you think about Easter? When you do think about it, what comes to mind? Easter is more than a date on the calendar, 
it is more than the earthly traditions which have become associated with Easter; it is about hope, a hope like no other. 
At the rootof this hope is the empty tomb of Jesus. Think of what this hope means for you, and let this hope lead you through your
days on this earth. Let us worship the One who has given us this hope.

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.
