Our Mission

. . . is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, through worship, education, outreach, fellowship, and service.

"The Lord is good, His steadfast love endures forever, His faithfulness to all generations." Psalm 100:5

During our time of social distancing and self-quarantining it is difficult to do the things that we used to do. One of those things that we are not able to do is attend church services where we give our offerings.

Here is a simple way you can continue to support St. Mark's Lutheran Church and School at home either on your computer or on your smart phone with an App. We are very thankful for everyone who gives so generously to help pay our teachers, who continue to work from home to educate our children, and keep up with all of the other bills that still come even when we are not there.

Below are video instructions for members to give using Give Plus mobile and Give Plus online:
