Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!
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
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.. . .

St. 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.
Rummage! Bake Goods! Soup!!
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.
