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.

Pastor Lori PowellFrom Our Pastor: 
Worship

From the November, 2017 issue of Branches

It is common knowledge by now that simply being grateful, being thankful and expressing gratitude is good for us. There are more than forty research studies that look at how thankfulness impacts our health and well-being. Of course, we can’t just say the words and expect the results. We have to put some effort into being grateful. We can pray words of thanksgiving to God or we can write in a gratitude journal. I always enjoy gratitude journals posted on Facebook. I can see who else is grateful for the scent of pine trees or the smell of really good coffee and I feel more connected to these friends...

I am grateful for a faith community that doesn’t feel hindered by its size but continues to be faithful in mission...

I am grateful for a worshipping community that is willing to...imagine new ways to be in worship...

I am grateful for the volunteers who...give themselves to the ministry of this church...Thanks be to God!

Blessings,

Pastor Lori
