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.”

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.
