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 PowelFrom Our Pastor: 
The Meaning of Lent
From the February, 2018 issue of Branches

I like the idea of Lent - forty days to consider our relationship with God and how we want to grow this relationship. There are years I have given something up for Lent and years I have added a spiritual practice for Lent. Usually I get more out of adding a spiritual practice to the relationship I already have with God. In the past few years we have tried different worship experiences here at St. Mark’s to accommodate our smaller than average congregation. I am very grateful this year to be encouraged to have evening services for both Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. As I have imagined how we will worship I have felt God’s energy encouraging us to set aside these special times to be in communion with God. Already, as a community, we are adding to our spiritual practices for Lent...

The purpose of walking through Lent together is that we become more finely attuned to our longing for God and seek God with all our hearts.
Ruth Haley Barton


Blessings,

Pastor Lori
