Some things you might like to know about us --
We welcome everyone. Come as you are and as who you are, wherever you are along your faith journey.
We have volunteer ASL (American Sign Language) interpreters at most worship services (10:30 AM), including our online services, and at church-sponsored events. If this is an important consideration in visiting St. Mark, please email us ahead of time firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to confirm if our volunteers will be signing at that particular service.
Our building is accessible, as is the path in from the parking lot.
We have both traditional worship (1st and 3rd Sundays) and contemporary worship services (2nd and 4th Sundays).
We are actively engaged in our community, especially with offering events for neighborhood kids and their families: a fee-free Vacation Bible School in the summer, a School Supply Event in September, and Trunk-or-Treat Halloween Party in October. We share our building with community groups so they can offer a weekly Chess Club for youth and adults, a monthly Game Night for families, and Community Fun Friday social events for special needs children, to name just a few.
Follow our Youtube Channel, our Facebook page, or access our services on our homepage while we are refraining from worshipping together during the coronavirus pandemic. We will resume in-person worship services when medical professionals deem it is safe to gather in groups again.
The mission of St. Mark Lutheran Church is to
gather, grow, and go in Christ.
We are God’s people in Christ, called to follow Jesus. We gather each week to worship through which we are shaped by the Living Word of Jesus in Word and Sacrament. Renewed by God’s grace, we are called to go be part of what God is doing in the world.
