St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Madison, WI

Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchSt. 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
Pastor Lori PowellAdvent into Christmas Thanksgiving
From our December issue of Branches
The Advent Season is about preparing ourselves for the coming of Christ into the world again. As we follow the Revised Common Lectionary, the Year B begins Sunday, November 30th. Through the texts assigned to year B we learn about why the coming of Christ is so important. This isn’t the year when we ponder with Mary the magnitude of her story. This isn’t the year when Joseph struggles with his choices. This is the year when we read about the darkness in the Bible stories as a way to see the darkness in our times....

...As we work our way through the darkness, we put our hope in the lightof the world who comes to us on Christmas Day!    Read all of Pastor Lori's article in the December 2014 issue of Branches. Click here.
