Reconciling in Christ

Saint Mark is a Reconciling in Christ congregation. Our welcoming statement reads:

“At Saint Mark Lutheran Church, we celebrate that Christ has made us one body with many members, all sharing in God’s grace and unconditional love. As a Reconciling in Christ congregation, we embrace all of God’s people, regardless of age, ethnicity, physical and mental abilities, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity or economic circumstance. We believe we are all unique and worthy individuals created by God. We joyfully welcome you to join us in worship, prayer, study, service and fellowship.”

For our pancake breakfast on Sunday, October 27th, we need helpers! If you would like to help, please call the church office and let us know that you plan to help serve, set up the tables, clean up, prep food, or whatever is needed! We need many hands in order to make light work!!!

Rally Day is Coming September 8th

We traditionally go back to two worship services in September. On the last Sunday that we worship together at 9:30 a.m. we have Rally Day (September 8 this year) with worship outside in the parking lot, blessing of the animals and a barbecue potluck lunch with activities for everyone (a bouncy house for the children!). Plan now for this date!

We return to two worship services on Sunday, September 15th, with Contemporary worship at 8:30 a.m. in the lounge and Liturgical worship at 11:00 a.m. in the sanctuary. Our Education hour is at 9:45 a.m. for all ages.

VBS in July on Monday Evenings

We will be trying a Vacation Bible School type experience for all ages on Monday evenings in July. We are planning to start with a light supper at 6:00 p.m., followed by lesson on the Biblical stories in our stained glass windows, games an crafts, and a wind- down “bedtime story” around 8:00 p.m. You do not need to be at all five Monday evenings to be involved. If you would like to sign up to help with just one meal, craft, or help with a specific area, call the church office. Lots of fun to be had by ALL!
