Welcome to St. Mark's Lutheran Church!
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 that your soul will be strengthened by the good news about God's grace, love, and forgiveness to us through his Son, Jesus Christ.
Our congregation also operates a Lutheran school for students in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade. If you would like to learn more about our church or school, please contact one of our pastors, the principal, or another representative of our church or school. They would be happy to assist you.
Season of the Church Year:
We are presently in the Pentecost season of the church year. Pentecost Day (Acts 2:1-41) is celebrated seven weeks after Easter and marks the birth of the Christian Church. The Sundays after Pentecost emphasize the life of the Church and the life of the Christian in light of the life, death, and resurrection of the Jesus Christ.
Focus of Today's Service:
Wealth and material blessings can be great gifts from God when viewed properly. But wealth and material blessings can also be great hindrances to our faith if we view them as more important than God and try to find our happiness in them. Today's Scripture lessons give us a practical and biblical prospective on money, recognizing it as a gift from God to be managed wisely, and encouraging us to find our ultimate happiness in the spiritual riches that are ours through faith in Jesus Christ.
