Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost
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 that your soul will be strengthened by the good news about God’s grace, love, and forgiveness to us through his Son, Jesus Christ.
Worship Focus: “Jesus sinners does receive!” This repeating phrase from today’s Hymn of the Day summarizes the common thought in today’s Scripture readings. Jesus does not seek the self-righteous person who trusts in his or her own good works. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, to rescue repentant sinners from the guilt of their sin and to comfort them with his limitless grace won for them by his death on the cross. Those who are weighed down by guilt can rejoice that “Jesus sinners does receive!”
