Children's Ministries

We offer a Sunday School program during Learning Hour for children 3 years old through 8th grade. Learning Hour is from 9:30 – 10:20 a.m. every Sunday. Our goal is to support each child’s spiritual journey as they grow their relationship with Jesus through God’s Word. As a parent, you are the most important model of faith for your child, and we hope to partner with you in this ministry.

Holy Communion

We celebrate Holy Communion every first and third Sunday of each month. As Lutheran Christians, we believe and teach that Christ’s body and blood are truly present in, with, and under the bread and the wine. We also believe and teach that we receive all the treasured blessings Christ earned for us, including forgiveness of sins, power over death and the devil, power to live the Christian life on earth, and to receive the goodness of the Lord! If you agree with this, you are welcome to join us for Holy Communion.

Be a part of what God is doing at and through Saint Mark Lutheran Church.

Following Jesus’ example and commands to serve others is an essential step in our spiritual journey. We believe the Bible teaches everyone is given a spiritual gift or gifts and that God equips each one with a unique personality, passion, and talent wrapped in a web of life experience to complement their spiritual gift in ministry.
