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.

Rev. Kirk Griffin, Pastor

Find peace.

Office Hours:

Monday through Friday, 11am-3:00pm

St Nicholas Day (Sankt Nikolaus Tag)

St Nicholas Day is a favorite holiday with German children. On the night of December 5, children clean and polish their boots and leave them outside the door before going to sleep. Next morning, they find their shoes filled with nuts, candy, and small gifts from St Nicholas.


Krampus Night (Krampus Nacht)

Krampus the devil is sort of a sidekick of St Nicholas. He is believed to accompany St Nicholas to teach naughty children a hard lesson.
