Journeys in Faith is a ministry of St. Mark’s for people who are considering Baptism or Affirmation of Baptism, and desire to become a member of the congregation. This ministry generally begins in the fall and continues through the spring. Participants gather weekly on Sunday mornings during the Education Hour to get acquainted with other people interested in membership, delve into the major tenets of Lutheranism, explore the meaning of faith and discipleship, and learn more about the mission and ministries of St. Mark’s. This ministry includes several rites throughout the year as a way of introducing and welcoming participants into the St. Mark’s community. This ritual journey culminates at the Easter Vigil when those wishing to be baptized or to affirm their baptism are officially welcomed into the community of St. Mark’s. If you are interested in membership at St. Mark’s, please contact one of the pastors and they will direct you to the dedicated team of volunteers who direct this vital ministry.If you are interested in learning more about St Mark’s, we would love to talk with you!
