Welcome to St Mark by the Sea Lutheran Church,
St Mark by the Sea is a growing, renewing, and culturally diverse Lutheran congregation in the heart of Palm Coast. Here, people of many Christian denominations have found a welcoming, inspiring, and exciting church home for more than 40 years.
Our faith is that God has freely forgiven our sins through our baptism into Christ’s death and resurrection. And through Word and sacrament, the Holy Spirit gives us the faith we need to live fully in God’s great gift of mercy.
Our mission is to invite, nurture, and serve as Christ’s people. We are dedicated to being involved in the church, community, and world. We believe that Christian service is God’s work through our hands.
Our hope is that through your participation in this worshiping community your faith will grow as you hear the good news of Jesus Christ and feel his love in the warm and welcoming smiles and hands of others who call St Mark their church home.
Our desire is that you will unite with us in the mission that God has given us to do by using your God given time, talent, and resources to proclaim and joyfully witness to the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
You are invited and encouraged to participate in all aspects of this congregations’ life together. Participating is the best way to get to know this community of faith and for us to get to know you.
God bless you!
