Worship For Everyone

St. Mark’s offers a worship experience for everyone, whether you prefer a traditional feel or a more modern style.

We invite you to join us and see for yourself. Both worship services are held in the sanctuary of the upper-level lobby. Don’t forget to fill out the red Welcome Pad located in the pew so we know you visited.

After the early service, get to know other members of the congregation during Fellowship Hour. This regular event takes place from 9:45-10:45 in the Family Life Center, and offers a great opportunity to make friends over doughnuts.

Children are welcome during all worship services. Concerned about fidgeting children during the service? Get the peace of mind that comes from knowing they’re quietly and safely at play in our supervised nursery. We also have a private space for nursing mothers.

What to Expect

Dress: We offer a casual environment. You’ll find worshippers in everything from jeans to suits.

Child-friendly: Each worship service includes a children’s sermon. Our Noah’s Ark carts are located at the back of the sanctuary, and offer activity packs and other small toys for children.

Welcoming: Stop by the Welcome Center located on the upper level for questions or additional information about St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.

Communion: St. Mark’s welcomes all baptized persons to the Lord’s Table. Adults and children who have not received communion instruction are welcome to come forward for a blessing.

After Your First Visit

St. Mark’s offers inquiry classes led by one of our pastors for individuals interested in exploring membership. After completion of the class, participants are given the option to join the congregation. You can register for the next Inquiry Class via the calendar or by calling the church office.
