A message from our Pastor:

We give thanks that your life’s journey has brought you here to visit with us today. Please use this opportunity to get to know us and in turn we would love to get to know you. Look around a bit and become acquainted with the diverse ministries and exciting lives of St. Mark Lutheran.

If while you are getting to know us, you have any questions, we would be happy to hear from you. Then, when you feel comfortable, come for a personal visit. We will welcome you just as we are: in the office, at worship, or during some other ministry activity.

God has truly blessed us both with a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other and to continue together in our faith journey. May it flourish and deepen our life as God’s people.

May God’s peace be with you today and always.
