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.

GayChurch.orgBecause we are an open and affirming congregation, you will find us listed on gaychurch.org.

About Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent which continues for 6 weeks. In Lent, God calls us to reflect on the meaning of Christ’s death and resurrection.


Ash Wednesday is named for the practice of imposing ashes, a practice that many Lutheran congregations have found to be a very meaningful part of the Ash Wednesday liturgy.

Using ashes as a sign of repentance is an ancient practice, often mentioned in the Bible (e.g., Jonah 3:5-9; Job 42:6; Jeremiah 6:26; Matthew 11:21). The early Christians adopted the use of ashes from Jewish practice as an external mark of penitence.
