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:
Fall is a Paradox
September, 2016 issue of Branches
Fall is a paradox. It is a time of new beginnings and it is a time of
endings. School children begin a new year of school in new classrooms with
new teachers and new opportunities. Those of us who have outgrown the school
schedule, still tend to find new jobs in the fall, take on new commitments
and maybe sign up for a class after the more relaxing days of summer.
However, the growing season comes to an end. Our
outside activities have to be modified. And something as simple as watching
the leaves change colors on the trees remind us that life itself is always
changing. Fall is a beautiful time and it can be a melancholy time.
Here at St. Mark’s we have some very specific
goals for fall. Whether we reach these goals or not will help us determine
if we are at a new beginning or at a new ending.
