St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Madison, WI

Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchConnect
St. Mark's is participating with several other congregations in a renewal program through the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin, ELCA called Connect. Connect is a two year program. Congregations support each other through Bible study and reflection, helping to identify and clarify the mission of each church and provide a foundation for new ministry opportunities. St. Mark's is excited to participate in this program and to further develop their hospitality ministries. Our mission statement is, "Reaching out with the unconditional love of God" though even this may be tweaked during the coming months.

Diana Butler Bass, a noted church historian, has observed that customs are what define the way a church cuts their communion bread, or what time service is or even what kind of music is played. Tradition is knowing that we are called to Jesus' table of grace, that we gather for worship out of thanksgiving, and we are to be Christ in the world. Custom's may need to change. Tradition is what keeps us grounded. Come and join us as we honor a faith tradition more than two thousand years old but that is necessary and relevant in our changing world.

Thank You to the Boy Scouts!
The Boy Scouts from Trinity United Methodist brought us 85 bags of food this month. We are grateful for the variety they bring!

Pastor Lori PowellFrom Our Pastor: 
Life as a Metaphor

From the April, 2017 issue of Branches
Dear Friends:
Endless gray, cloudy, wet days exemplify the art of grieving. And grieving our losses, washing away the parts of ourselves that get in the way of our relationship with God is the stuff of Lent. This spring time weather is exactly what we are supposed to be going through as we walk up to Easter. Easter is late this year and I had planned to celebrate Easter with sunshine and colorful flowers. On a day like today, one wonders if we will ever get there. And yet, even though I am not enjoying these wet, cloudy days, the bulbs in my yard are getting taller, the grass is getting greener and new life is waiting in the wings . . . It is my hope that this is true of our spiritual journeys as well as of our faith community . . .
Blessings, Pastor Lori
