St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Madison, WI

Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchOne person cannot adequately describe a community though I can tell you what is important here at St. Mark’s. We are a small congregation that worships every Sunday at 9:30. Every Sunday we celebrate the Lord’s Supper as a tangible sign to live in God’s grace. Grace is important to us. Our Food Ministries are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. It is important to us to feed our neighbors who are in need of food. Sharing is important to us. As a renewing congregation we are open to new ways of being in ministry. Being open is important to us. We are a diverse congregation. Welcoming others is important to us. Whoever you are; straight, gay, committed Christian, a person with many questions, with children or without, you are welcome here.

Please join us in worship or feel free to call or email if you have questions about St. Mark’s. I would love to talk to you about your faith journey and what you are seeking in a faith community.

From Our Pastor
Pastor Lori PowellFootball & Faith
From the October, 2015 issue of Branches

. . . God loves us with that some amazing, endless, life sustaining kind of love. Regardless of who wins what games, we are loved. That should feel like a win but sometimes we also want the kind of validation for our hard work and talents that winning a game can provide. Sometimes we let external success determine our self-worth.. . .

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.

October 10
St. Mark's is having a Rummage Sale/Bake Sale/Soup Sale on October 10th. The sale is from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM September is the perfect month for fall housecleaning. Bring items you no longer need or want to the church. I am here most mornings though calling is always a great idea to be sure I am here or to set up a time to drop off your items. Volunteers will also be needed throughout the day. Curb and gutters are coming to Hickory Street this coming spring. Our bill for curbs and gutters in $7000. Let's see how much of this we can raise!

Summer Fresh Produce and Volunteers

Potatoes, apples and sweet corn have been the highlights of the Food Pantry the past few weeks. We have gained a few new volunteers for Tuesday morning but are still in need of a volunteer for the second Thursday of each month. On Thursdays we open the waiting room at 5:30, unpack the farmer’s market vegetables and are ready for guests at 5:45. We close at 7:30 on Thursdays. If you know someone looking for a volunteer experience, pass the word.
