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.
Focus of Today’s Service: We continue in the Sundays after the Epiphany to unwrap the gift of the Messiah the Lord gave us in Jesus. Today we see him preaching. The Gospel is the Beatitudes, the opening words of the Savior’s Sermon on the Mount. Jesus calls his disciples to reject the values of the world. He says, “Blessed are the poor in spirit…those who mourn…the meek…those who hunger and thirst…those who are persecuted.” Today’s Psalm, Psalm 1, reflects on the blessedness of believers as Jesus did in the Beatitudes.
