Welcome Letter

Greetings and welcome to you from the Pastor and members of St. Mark Ev. Lutheran Church.

St. Mark cares and we strive to be a place where you can bring both your heart and your mind to search for a deeper experience of God. We care about you; if you are hurting, grieving, or ill. If you have lost your job, a relationship, if you are lonely or depressed or simply searching for more meaning in your life; you will find comfort, care and love here at St. Mark.

We hope that you will find a caring place of worship that reminds you that a new way of the heart is always available, that change for the better is always an option in our lives, and that love is more important than doctrine.

St. Mark members are committed to creating a community of grace where you feel completely welcome-— in your spiritual journey. St. Mark members care about our community; about children, about teaching the faith and we care about you.

We commit ourselves to full inclusion of all persons in worship and in its ministry, working to create a church without barriers. We find all people to be of sacred worth and welcome everyone who comes here seeking the love of God. Following the example of Jesus, we will know no circles of exclusion, and work to become a witness of love and peace for all. This is depicted in a 7X9foot stained glass mosaic of Jesus standing in a Garden with open arms.

Jesus takes the words of all 613 commandments of the Law and cuts to the chase of God’s will, cuts to the core of God’s purpose. We remember Jesus saying:

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment, and the second is like it. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and all the prophets. (Matthew 22:38-40)

The essence of Jesus’ message. It’s love. It’s all about love. Come worship with us. Come experience the Love of God. Come add your gifts to the beauty of this place and the reach of it ministries. Come see just how much St. Mark cares.

In Christ’s love and care,
Pr. Travis M. Fisher-King and the members of St. Mark
