“Summer Sanctuary Wednesdays” 10:30 am – 1:30 pm
During June and July, “Summer Sanctuary Wednesdays” is offered as a time for midweek personal prayer and meditation in St. Mark’s sanctuary. A 20 minute recital will be played at noon each Wednesday by Lester Ackerman, Director of Music Ministry. A monthly devotional bulletin is also available for this time of prayer.
Contemporary Worship – 8:30 am
Each Sunday, members and visitors gather in the Chapel of St. Mark’s to worship God through Word, song, and Holy Communion. We worship using designated worship booklets, contemporary worship music and the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW). The chapel provides a relaxed, intimate setting for the congregation.
The primary instruments during this service are the guitar, keyboard, and djembe drum. Alex English, Director of Youth Ministry, leads the instrumentalists and assists Pastor Tim with the service. All are welcome!
Once a month, immediately follow the service, a Stephen Minister is available for intercessory prayer.
Traditional Worship – 10:30 am
The Traditional Worship Service is located our beautiful Sanctuary. We worship using Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW), a rich source of old standards and the best contemporary hymnody. We use several of the liturgies in the ELW and are steadily working our way to being proficient in all 10. Holy Communion is celebrated during each service.
The primary instrument during this service is the organ. Brass and strings are often used to enhance our praise of God, not only on festival Sundays, but on any given day of worship. Mr. Les Ackerman, Jr. is our organist and leads our choir as the director of music. All are welcome!
Once a month, Stephen Ministers are available during communion for intercessory prayer.
We have a nursery staffed with caring adult members, open to infants and children up to age four beginning at 10:15am. However, many of our parents bring their children to worship. Our pastor offers a children’s sermon each week, and then children have the option of going to Children’s Church during the sermon or returning to sit with their parents.
During Advent and Lent we offer midweek services at 12:15 pm and 7:00 pm. We follow the liturgical calendar of the church year and celebrate the festivals with joy.
