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.

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.
Isaac says we should invite people to church
so we can sing Happy Birthday to them!
From Our Pastor
Season of Love:
February, 2016 issue of Branches
In the verses noted [in Ash Wednesday worship] there are usually words to
the effect, “you put breath in me and then the breath returned to you”
meaning, that life, all life, belongs to God. When the ashes are placed on
our foreheads it is our acknowledgement that God is the God of life. We get
to live and breathe and make choices both good and bad but life, even our
lives are from God. This is how we begin Lent, with humbleness and a sense
of awe that God is. One of the tasks of Lent is to get to know the God of
all of Pastor Lori's article in the February, 2016 issue of Branches.
