  Welcome to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church !!

  We rejoice that diversity in God's creation enriches, nurtures and challenges our life and ministry as followers of Jesus and as servants in the world.

  Because we believe with Jesus that God's grace is truly amazing, we are committed to welcoming all people to this place. It does not matter where you come from; what age, race, socioeconomic or family status; what your gender identity or sexual orientation.

 

Who is welcome here?

 

            If you are male, female, or transgender…
            If you are heterosexual, homosexual, or bisexual…
            If you are three days old, 30 years old, or 103 years old…
            If you’ve never stepped foot into a church, or are a life-long Lutheran…
            No matter what your life situation…

           

  You are welcome here!

 

This congregation is committed to being a radically loving and welcoming community of faith, centered in the Good News of Jesus Christ. Therefore, in faithfulness to the Gospel and our Lutheran heritage, we promise to share programs, ministries, and pastoral care to all who seek God in this place. All are expected and encouraged to share fully in the sacramental and general life of this congregation. All are expected and encouraged to engage fully in the nurturing, care, and support of each other and of our congregation.
 
Grace is for everyone or it isn't grace. It's that simple. It's that amazing.
We really do welcome all!
