St. Mark's 145th Anniversary Celebration

On February 14, 2019, St. Mark's Lutheran Church turned 145 years old. Rev. Bob Weise has agreed to join us for the weekend as our guest preacher on September 28 & 29.

On Sunday after the church service, the celebration will continue in Steeleville City Park with a lunch picnic. Check back here for more information, as plans are finalized we will post updates.

Three Centuries of Heritage

Organized in 1874, St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church was established to serve the growing German Lutheran community around Steeleville. The new congregation grew rapidly. The current sanctuary was built in 1897 and enlarged in 1922. Today St. Mark’s has around 1100 baptized members and continues to meet the spiritual needs or the Steeleville community 134 years after its founding.

Making Joyful Noise

“God created…and it was good”, we read in Genesis. All creation is a gift given to us to be used in service and praise to our gracious Lord. God’s gift of music plays an especially important role in our congregation’s worship services. Music is a vehicle to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and a way to respond back to God with our love, praise, and thanks. Here are some examples of the many ways we proclaim the Gospel through music at St. Mark’s.
