Therefore, keep awake--for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or at dawn, or else he may find you asleep when he comes suddenly. And what I say to you I say to all: Keep awake.

The members of St. Mark's Congregational Council hope you are all well and safe in this strange and frightening time. We pray you are all managing this crisis without too much stress.

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!



“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 the interest of maintaining the health and safety of our members and visitors.
