Connecting People to Jesus

SERVICE IN SMALL GROUPS

Connect 3 is St Mark’s small group ministry. Community service is a HUGE focus in these groups. Mobilizing in small, manageable teams makes us far more effective as a larger congregation and church in the community. Each small group gets to choose their area of interest and passion in serving the community. You can do everything from community clean up, to assisting with charities and service organizations already in existence, to something more simple and “indoorzy” if that’s your group’s prerogative.

Lutheran Women’s Missionary League

The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) is the official women’s auxiliary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. For 75 years, the LWML has focused on affirming each woman’s relationship with Christ, encouraging and equipping women to live out their Christian lives in active mission ministries and to support global missions. The LWML is the leading group for LCMS women where each woman is welcomed and encouraged to use her unique God-given gifts as she supports global missions and serves the Lord with gladness.
