Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!
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.

Ready for Fall
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.

St. 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
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.
