ST MARK Evangelical Lutheran Church
Growing Together in God's Love to Serve Others

Worship Services

Our Beliefs
Lutherans are Christians who accept the teachings of Martin Luther (1483–1546). Luther was a German theologian who realized that there were significant differences between what he read in the Bible and the practices of the Roman Catholic church at that time. On October 31, 1517, he posted a challenge on the door of Wittenberg University, titled “95 Theses” (to debate 95 theological issues). His hope was that the church would reform its practice and preaching to be more consistent with the Word of God as contained in the Bible.​

Seven Habits

Our Mission Statement
Growing Together in God's Love to Serve Others

Our Vision

Empowered by God, we the people of St. Mark will:

  • Foster an open, caring, forgiving environment
  • Provide choices for inspirational, motivational, and reflective worship experiences
  • Equip ourselves to be ministers in everyday life
  • Provide a teaching and learning community for the Gospel of Christ
  • Serve our local and global community

Our Values
Our mission and vision are based on these values and beliefs:

  • We profess God the Creator, God the Savior, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Word and Sacrament shape our lives.
  • We welcome all people as Children of God.
  • We accept all people wherever they may be on their Christian journey.
  • We acknowledge our need to forgive each other as Christ has forgiven us.
  • We value a nurturing community in which all people are ministers in the work of God

Our History
St. Mark was organized in 1954 as the first congregation in the community of Circle Pines. Our address, One North Road, could point a person to conclude the life of the community begins at the church.

First organized by the interest and dedication of a number of families with Danish ethnic background, the church quickly grew around a strong emphasis on worship and education. A caring spirit toward our neighbors with an emphasis on being a welcoming place is a trademark of St. Mark.
