Lift Up Your Hearts & Prepare
for a Joy-filled Christmas

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: With all the hustle and bustle of Christmas … the decorating, the cleaning, the
baking, the gift buying, and so much more … the JOY of CHRISTmas can be missing in us and
through us. These midweek Advent Gatherings are meant to help us stay focused on the JOY of
CHRISTmas even as we do all the other activities we like to do this time of year. If we lose the JOY,
what is the point of Christmas? If we don’t have Christmas, we have no reason for joy. God is good,
for He has given us CHRISTmas which comes with JOY. Pass on the JOY!

Serving at Worship
Presiding Minister: Pastor Jonathan Kolander
Accompanist: Lisa Thiesfeldt
