A Message from Our Pastor

We give thanks that your life’s journey has brought you here to visit with us today. Please use this opportunity to get to know us and in turn we would love to get to know you. Look around a bit and become acquainted with the diverse ministries and exciting lives of St. Mark Lutheran.

 

If while you are getting to know us, you have any questions, we would be happy to hear from you. Then, when you feel comfortable, come for a personal visit. We will welcome you just as we are: in the office, at worship, or during some other ministry activity.

 

God has truly blessed us both with a wonderful opportunity to get to know each other and to continue together in our faith journey. May it flourish and deepen our life as God’s people.

 

May God’s peace be with you today and always.

Rev. Kirk Griffin, Pastor

From St. Mark to You

 

We wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving and that you safely enjoy the holiday with your family and friends.

Join Us

We welcome you to visit us.

If you are visiting for the first time, we would love a chance to explain just exactly who we are. Come as you are and join us for our traditional Sunday worship. Stay for cookies and conversation afterward.

Come in and talk or pray or both.

Find peace.

Yes, it’s getting near that time of year again where snow, ice, cold, wet, and any myriad of weather conditions may affect our ability to conduct worship.  For possible St. Mark closings, we can follow WGAL for any closings or delays and WGAL.COM.  We will do our best to leave messages on the church website, church telephone, and send e-mails where able.  Please keep us updated on your contact information.
