Welcoming new members
If you are looking for a place to find meaning and purpose in your life, you are sure to find that place at St. Mark's Lutheran Church.
We generally welcome new members on the last Sunday of even-numbered months. Talk with Pastor Locke or call the church office at 904-396-9608 (email Pastor.Daniel.Locke@gmail.com) if you or someone you know are interested in joining St. Mark's.
We are a welcoming congregation where you can express your love for God and for God's people no matter your age, race, economic status, or sexual orientation.
We have been an active member of this community since 1938 and take seriously our responsibilities in the city and neighborhood. We are proud to call ourselves an urban congregation.
Since our beginning, St. Mark's has been known for its excellence in traditional and liturgical forms of worship and church music. While we are traditional, we are not stuffy or rigid. We understand that God continues to bless his people with new music and new ways to bring praise and glory to God. We are challenging without being preachy, and contemporary without being trendy.
St. Mark's pays close attention to the needs of the people in our congregation and in the world around us. We have well-developed caring ministries for those who are sick or homebound in our congregation. Likewise, we are active in serving those in need in Jacksonville, Florida, and around the world.
We are a congregation that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person — questions, complexities and all.
