Looking for Good News?
Yes—there is plenty of not-so-great news these days. The pandemic has radically altered how we live and work. We are struggling to make sense of things happening in the world and knowing our place in it. These larger issues of 2020 and beyond may be compounding problems we face daily at home, school, work and in our community.
Though our lives may be slowly getting “back to normal” many are still struggling or finding it harder to cope.
Yet we know the good news that covers it all: that Jesus Christ has overcome the world, its sin and sufferings!
With our faith in the risen Savior, we at St. Mark’s Church continue to share the gospel of salvation and hope with the Fox Valley. We want the world to know that Jesus offers meaningful abundant life now, and eternal joy with Him after this life (John 10:10 and John 3:16).
Have you missed the good news? Think it’s overshadowed by your present circumstance? Give us a chance to show you the truth that radically changes lives—only found in Jesus!

Looking for Connection?
Masks, social distancing and reduced interaction limit one of the greatest purposes and joys in life: relationship. We’ve become disconnected, or only connected by devices.
We are called not to give up fellowshipping with one another (Hebrews 10:25). As brothers and sisters in Christ, we rely on the love, compassion and consultation of other believers. So as much as possible in keeping with state guidelines, we are relating!
St. Mark’s Church conducts smaller worship services and children’s Sunday School (in multiple locations on campus if necessary). We also connect through home-delivered communion and our Cornerstone small groups. Our rector and associate pastors continue to preach and teach in-person and online, building up and encouraging the congregation. Our children’s and youth ministries make sure that kids feel connected, loved, and are growing in their relationship with the Lord.
And just as important, we are still serving people in need in the Fox Valley. Our ministry to the poor and sick within our communities continues as we strive to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 25:34-45).
Looking for Hope?
Yes, times are tough. The struggle is very real. Yet we will never be people who have no hope. We know that God is always sovereign, always working, always leading and always loving His children. His plan is perfect, if not always clear. We place our hope in the fact that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28). He fills us with all joy and peace as we trust in Him, that our lives would overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
Need to know that kind of hope, or the kind of peace that can’t be toppled by circumstances? Contact one of our rectors who would be delighted to discuss it with you.
