Who We Are:
We are Called by the Holy Spirit, Equipped to Serve, Sent to love all.
We at St. Mark's are learning how to be God's people together. We worship, we pray, we try to form deeper relationships with ourselves and the community around the Church. We know we don't always get it right, but we are on the journey together. .
We are part of the ELCA
We are part of the ELCA:
The ELCA is the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. It’s a family of faith that emerged through a LOT of mergers of smaller families of faith all over the US and Caribbean. There are millions of Lutherans all over the world. There are about 4.8 million ELCA Lutherans in over 10,000 congregations in the US, and over 66 million around the globe who work together in the Lutheran World Federation.
A note about the word evangelical: The word simply means "good news."
It s what Lutherans called themselves in Europe, and usually still do. The word has taken on different meanings in the US for different groups. We think it means encountering God should be good news. Period.
