New Member Classes

St. Mark's encourages all interested in membership to attend a series of new member classes. These inquiry classes focus on what it means to be a Lutheran and specific programs and opportunities found at St. Mark's. 

Our next New Member/Inquirer Classes is coming up in the fall of 2023. 

Classes will be held on three upcoming Sundays: 

  • October 22
  • October 29
  • November 5

Classes go form 5:00 - 7:00 pm at St. Mark's. We begin with dinner prepared by congregation members followed by an informational class. This is a wonderful time to learn more about St. Mark’s history, what it means to be a Lutheran, and get to know the pastors in a small group capacity. The new members will be welcomed into the congregation on Sunday, November 12, at the 10:45 am service. 

If you are interested in learning what St. Mark's and the Lutheran religion, specifically the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) are all about, you can register for this class at For questions, please contact Katie Kadlec at 360.600.3633 or
