Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost August 25, 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 temptations 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: Do you agree with the sayings ‘Never too old to learn something new” or “I learn something new every day”? Do we get to a point in life when it can be said ‘we know it all’? That would be quite a feat. While in a sense we never stop learning , it is also important to put into practice what we learn. Our School has been teaching valuable life skills for 50 years. Today we focus on some of those taught life skills with the reminder to not just learn them but to follow them as well. Happy learning! Blessings on the doing!
