St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Madison, WI

Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!

St. Mark's Lutheran ChurchConnect
St. Mark's is participating with several other congregations in a renewal program through the South-Central Synod of Wisconsin, ELCA called Connect. Connect is a two year program. Congregations support each other through Bible study and reflection, helping to identify and clarify the mission of each church and provide a foundation for new ministry opportunities. St. Mark's is excited to participate in this program and to further develop their hospitality ministries. Our mission statement is, "Reaching out with the unconditional love of God" though even this may be tweaked during the coming months.

Diana Butler Bass, a noted church historian, has observed that customs are what define the way a church cuts their communion bread, or what time service is or even what kind of music is played. Tradition is knowing that we are called to Jesus' table of grace, that we gather for worship out of thanksgiving, and we are to be Christ in the world. Custom's may need to change. Tradition is what keeps us grounded. Come and join us as we honor a faith tradition more than two thousand years old but that is necessary and relevant in our changing 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.
