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.
From Our Pastor
is All Around Us
July, 2015 issue of Branches
...Jesus sent his disciples out two by two to share the Gospel. He told them
to take nothing for the journey but a walking stick and their sandals.
Many of us will be traveling this summer but we will not travel so
lightly. We can’t imagine traveling so lightly! At the very least we will
take money, some clothes, a cell phone, and either a Kindle, an iPad, or an
iPod. We can’t imagine living with all of these devices as they help us
stay, “connected." What if...? .

St. Mark’s Food Pantry
Farm Produce is Back!
We are so incredibly grateful to have volunteer Barb Zimmerman from St.
Matthews New Life Lutheran Church picking up produce for some of the
various Farmer’s Markets. We have had fresh spinach, lettuce, onions,
radishes, turnips, and mint. Guests to the food pantry are choosing
healthier options which makes those of us filling the food pantry
grateful. Boxed Macaroni and cheese is lasting a long time as people
choose less salty options. If you have a great bean recipe, please let
me know. Our meats for June are limited to tuna, ham and canned salmon
but we have lots of canned beans. Recipes are a great way to help folks
try new things.
On April 21st Roundy's Foundation gave the
food pantry $500 and 2800 pounds of food. Here are Lynn Miller, Church
President and Pat Kreitzman, Food Pantry volunteer with their vans full.
