St. Mark's Welcomes You!

Greetings, St. Mark's Family!

Each Thursday, St. Mark's Wellness Ministry Team will be posting ideas promoting positive experiences at this difficult time. These ideas embrace the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Wholeness Wheel.
Click image to view some wholeness ideas which you can do.

The general idea is to feel better about possibilities we can explore in a positive, faith-driven way.

In-person services at St. Mark's Lutheran Church are suspended, and St. Mark's will remain closed through the month of April. We will continue to offer online services each week. Ellda is still performing her office functions (often from her home) and Pastor Scott is available by phone 24/7.

Please try to connect with each other in some way, without violating the stay-at-home rules. So let's make some calls, send some notes, stay in touch... with family, neighbors, and shut-ins. And please stay safe!

Martin Luther, “Whether One May Flee from a Deadly Plague, 1527,” The Annotated Luther, Volume 4: Pastoral Writings, ed. Mary Jane Haemig (Minneapolis: Fortress Press, 2016), 404.

"I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine, and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me, and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others. If my neighbor needs me, however, I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely, as stated above. See, this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God."



“United in Christ, sharing his Good News, we invite all people to grow in God’s love.”

Closures/Postponements

In-person services at St. Mark's Lutheran Church are currently suspended, in keeping with the stay-at-home edict from Gov. Larry Hogan, as well as in the interest of maintaining the health and safety of our members.
