St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Madison, WI

Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchOne 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.

Blessings,
Pastor Lori

Both Hickory Street and Spruce Street are torn up right at our intersection. Two easy ways to get to St. Mark's:
From Park Street, go east on Cedar Street, then north on Hickory Street to our parking lot on the left.

From John Nolan Drive
, go west on Olin Ave, South on Gilson Street, west on Cedar Street and north on Hickory Street to our parking lot on the left. 

While this construction project is inconvenient, we are going to have a Picnic and Carnival to celebrate it's completion that will be so much fun we won't remember how messy this is! Construction is expected to be completed mid-July. Thanks for sticking with us!

Pastor Lori PowellFrom Our Pastor:  Planting Seeds
From the June, 2016 issue of Branches
I read at least three articles a week on renewing and transforming churches. This quote by Diana Butler Bass on the difference between tradition and custom’s I thought was significant. What do we mean by tradition? “Customs are the way we cut our communion bread, what time the service takes place, and what our buildings look like. Traditions are the act of receiving communion, gathering for worship and setting aside sacred space”. We have a strong and wonderful tradition to celebrate! Let us make sure it is tradition and not customs or practice upon which we build.
