Message from Pastor Kolander:

“God’s mercies are new every day. May this truth regarding His mercy refresh us and motivate us in our worship of Him and in our living our lives for Him. It is a privilege to work alongside the members of St. Mark’s as we seek to Glorify God through worship, Grow in His Grace, and Go with His Gospel near and far.
