We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us, and we continue to celebrate that love through worship, service, and community.
Our church offers a wide range of ministry opportunities. Whether you'd like to learn more, pray more, or serve more, we have a ministry for you.
Making an offering of your financial resources is an integral part of what it means to be a Christian. We have a variety of ways to make it easy to support our church.
NEWS AND EVENTS
SAINT MARK'S LUTHERAN CHURCH WELCOMES YOU!
We welcome you if you are single, married, divorced, gay, wealthy, poor, black, brown, yellow or white. We welcome crying newborns, squirming children and frazzled moms and dads. You are welcome if you sing like an opera star or can’t carry a tune in a bucket, like some of us. We don’t care if you’re more Lutheran than Martin Luther, haven’t been in church since little Joey’s baptism, or if you’re “just browsing.” We welcome you if you are over 60, even if you haven’t grown up yet, or if you are a teenager and growing up too fast. We welcome starving artists, latte-sippers, vegetarians and junk food junkies. You are welcome if you are in recovery or still struggling with your addiction. We welcome you if you have been having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like “organized religion.” We’ve been there too. If you are left-wing, right-wing or no wing at all, you are welcome here. If you are visiting Grandma and Grandpa and they made you come to church, welcome! Likewise, if you are in town to visit a child, grandchild or friend, you are welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now. We welcome you to Saint Mark's Lutheran Church because we are a place of saints and sinners of all kinds who are here by the grace of God.
FAITH AND SCIENCE DISCUSSION
Our discussions on Faith and Science are focused primarily on religion through the eyes of well-known scientists and theologians who understand that our faith can be informed by science rather than conflict with it. We use various tools such as audio and video clips and articles focused on these scientists to create the basis for discussion. We think you’ll find these discussions interesting and useful.
Our next discussion on Faith and Science will be on Thursday, November 21st in the conference room at 7:00 p.m. If you have any questions about this, contact Stan Suther at email@example.com or 704-877-2375.
FOOD FOR DAYS
We still have children in our school system that don’t have food for the weekend. This problem is not going away. The Iredell School system and Mooresville Graded School District have at least 400 children who are considered homeless. (That means no permanent address). We have one school with over 30 students on a waiting list due to no sponsor.
St. Mark’s has generously supported 67 children out of 75 – 100 that attend Park View Elementary School. Social Ministry depends on the caring hearts of our congregation to support Food for Days, Backpack Ministry.
Cost for one child for the school year is $250.00 or any amount your heart dictates. Please indicate Food for Days on your check and envelope.
