St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church
We are a Lutheran church. We are called and empowered by God to lead our families, friends and community into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
WHO ARE WE?
St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Southwest PA Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Organized in 1906, St Mark’s has served the Brookline neighborhood for 117 years.
Over the years, St. Mark’s developed a history of strong worship, bible study, Christian Education and loving servanthood to the neighborhood. St. Mark’s believes that God’s people are saved by grace through faith and that God welcomes all people to follow Jesus, “loving the Lord with all our heart, mind and strength; and loving our neighbors as ourselves.”
We believe that in Christ Jesus, “there is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all are one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). As Martin Luther stated, we believe that all people are “simultaneously saints and sinners” and that God’s steadfast love, mercy, forgiveness and grace are for all people without regard for any human categories or prejudice. All people are made in the image of God. We are all God’s beloved children.
St. Mark’s is a congregation of about 100 followers of Jesus who provide many ministries to the community. So there are always opportunities to volunteer with Meals on Wheels, Backyard Angel (free clothing ministry) Food Share Ministry, Community 341 (free meals every Wednesday at 5 pm). We also host NA meetings on Monday and Friday evenings.
If you are looking for a faithful, loving, fellowship of faith, you are always welcome at St. Mark’s (no exceptions).
