St. Mark Lutheran Church posts Rev. Bramwell’s sermons online for the sake of the members of our local congregation unable to gather with us due to illness or work, etc. This resource is not intended to encourage refraining from being gathered around God’s Word and Sacraments in person. Matthew 18:20 and Hebrews 10:25 make it clear that God’s Divine Service is meant to be experienced physically with other Christians.
