FIRST READING (NLT) Deuteronomy 18:15-20
Moses continued, “The LORD your God will raise up
for you a prophet like me from among your fellow
Israelites. You must listen to him. 16 For this is what
you yourselves requested of the LORD your God
when you were assembled at Mount Sinai.[a] You
said, ‘Don’t let us hear the voice of the LORD our
God anymore or see this blazing fire, for we will
“Then the LORD said to me, ‘What they have said
is right. 18 I will raise up a prophet like you from
among their fellow Israelites. I will put my words in
his mouth, and he will tell the people everything I
command him. 19 I will personally deal with anyone
who will not listen to the messages the prophet
proclaims on my behalf. 20 But any prophet who
falsely claims to speak in my name or who speaks in
the name of another god must die.’
R: This is the Word of the Lord
C: Thanks be to God
P: HOLY GOSPEL (NLT) Mark 1:21-28
Jesus and his companions went to the town of
Capernaum. When the Sabbath day came, he went
into the synagogue and began to teach. 22 The people
were amazed at his teaching, for he taught with real
authority—quite unlike the teachers of religious law.
Suddenly, a man in the synagogue who was
possessed by an evil[a] spirit began shouting, 24 “Why
are you interfering with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have
you come to destroy us? I know who you are—the
Holy One of God!”
Jesus cut him short. “Be quiet! Come out of the
man,” he ordered. 26 At that, the evil spirit screamed,
threw the man into a convulsion, and then came out
of him.
Amazement gripped the audience, and they began
to discuss what had happened. “What sort of new
teaching is this?” they asked excitedly. “It has such
authority! Even evil spirits obey his orders!” 28 The
news about Jesus spread quickly throughout the
entire region of Galilee.
R: This is the Gospel of the Lord
C: Praise To You, O Christ
New 2015 contribution envelopes are in!
Please pick them up in the Narthex. If you do

St. Mark would like to start a mentoring
program to help Confirmands and New
Members become more acclimated and feel
more welcome in our congregation. There is
no training involved. We are simply looking
for people who would volunteer some of their
time and encouragement to these people by
being there to answer questions for them and
show a personal interest in them. We can give
you ideas how to do this. If this sounds
interesting to you, please contact the Pastor or
the church office. Please consider this as a
way to make St. Mark a great place to share
the Good News!!
