Worship at St. Mark's

A proud tradition

We are known in Jacksonville for our tradition of strong Lutheran liturgy and preaching. The worship services may be traditional but they are not rigid or stuffy. Many new hymns and liturgies are always being incorporated into our services. We've been told that our hymn singing and choirs are among the best in all Florida. And because we are Lutheran, join us for coffee hour following the service.

We strive to be:

Traditional and liturgical, not rigid or stuffy

Worship at St. Mark’s is always centered on God's Word and sacraments. Worship is the center of our church life, engaging our minds, hearts, and voices with God's presence and sending us out as witnesses to God's grace. Our services follow Lutheran liturgical traditions yet still incorporate a wide variety of music types (classical to jazz) played on organ, piano, hand bells, oboe, viola, and other instruments.

Our worship services are a blend of new and contemporary songs and liturgy and more traditional Lutheran liturgy and hymns. Vocal choirs of adult and children as well as two bell choirs enhance our worship services. We like to think there is something for everyone's worship preferences. If not every Sunday, we strive for a good blend on most Sundays.

We observe Holy Communion weekly. It is offered to all baptized believers. We believe that Christ is truly present in this meal for the forgiveness of sin, life, and salvation. We believe that through baptism we are made children of God and formed into the body of Christ in this place.

Join us

Our faith is built around a strong belief in God as made known to us in Jesus Christ. Through worship, service, and education, we practice our faith, grow our relationship with God and experience God's grace in our lives.

You are always welcome into God's house and into our community of faith.
Join us for worship. Stay to become part of the family.
