Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchYou Are Welcome Here!
Statement of Welcome as a Reconciling in Christ Congregation

The mission statement of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church is to “share the unconditional love of God.” In living out this mission and experiencing God’s overwhelming love we welcome to worship and membership those who have felt excluded from other congregations. This includes those who have felt alienated because of sexual orientation, gender, age, physical or intellectual disability, financial resources and family status.

As followers of Jesus Christ, members of St. Mark’s Lutheran Church are invited to work for justice and seek wholeness in every Reconciling In Christrelationship and at every opportunity. This means that not only do we welcome everyone but we encourage them into full mission partnership and have the expectation that together we can be Christ’s church in the world.

Lent: The Continuing Journey
From the March, 2018 issue of Branches

I was surprised on Ash Wednesday that when I went to help Tony with his prayer beads he ended up with a bracelet that said, “God loves Tony”. Then others found the alphabet beads and different words and themes were identified. Maybe we can’t get too much of hearing about how God loves us. Maybe looking at these words every day during Lent will help us more deeply feel God’s love and then share this love with others. Lent is about becoming aware of God’s love for us.

Reconciling in ChristThe congregation voted on February 18th to become a Reconciling in Christ congregation. This is an important way to declare God’s love for all. Several years ago the congregation had a serious of Bible studies on homosexuality, since then our practice has been inclusive. Becoming an official Reconciling in Christ congregation was a necessary and natural next step. We are on a mission to share the unconditional love of God!


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.

Blessings,

Pastor Lori
