St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Madison, WI

Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchSt. Mark’s is at the place where we can feel God’s guiding spirit leading us into a new future. “Behold” says our God, “I make all things new”. We are committed to growing our spiritual lives, continually asking, “what does it mean to follow in Jesus’ footsteps?” We are committed to strengthening the relationships within the community and developing new relationships with our friends who come to eat and stay for worship. We are grateful to discover the joy in being renewed.

From Our Pastor
Pastor Lori PowellGetting Ready for Fall
From the August, 2015 issue of Branches

Throughout the summer the Scriptures have invited us to think about getting away and spending some quiet time with God. Jesus needed to do this and so do we if we are to have clarity and energy for our ministry. There are still some weeks left of summer so I encourage you, if you haven’t done so already, to find some quiet time in the summer to enjoy the beauty of creation and some quiet time with God. We have just returned from camping in western Minnesota and the memory of the moon shining over Lake Shetek brings me peace every time I think of it.

BreadSt. Mark’s Food Pantry
Bread of Life
At a time when the lectionary has us spending six weeks thinking about the feeding of the five thousand and wondering about Jesus as the bread of life, the food pantry continues enroll new families. Economically life gets better for some but not for all. We remain thankful this month for the produce donated each Thursday from the Middleton Farmer’s Market. We have had plenty of zucchini, kohlrabi, cabbage and beets to share. We are also grateful for the food collection of the Wagon Drive. Food drives always bring in much needed variety. Thanks to the Bay Creek Neighborhood kids!

All Church Meeting – August 16th
This is an important meeting to finalize plans for the fall and continue to think about how St. Mark’s can extend hospitality, welcoming others in. This meeting will be during the fellowship time after worship.
