Mission Statement


We invite you to grow in your relationship with God by embracing the Holy Spirit, and opening your heart to the true Word of God.

 Journey of Faith

We invite you to build a strong foundation of faith by experiencing God's grace through baptism, Sunday School, vacation Bible School, Confirmation, youth programs, adult bible school, and worship.


We invite you to join us as we serve the Lord through outreach to those in need within our congregation, the community and the world.

St. Mark's Lutheran Church Welcomes YOU

On behalf of the entire congregation here at St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jefferson, Wisconsin we want to take this opportunity to thank you for visiting our website. We are a church that believes in the life changing power of Jesus Christ, and do our best to share His love both at church and in our community, we are privileged to serve.

If you are looking for a “perfect church,” then I encourage you to click away quickly because we’re not that church, yet we are doing our best to become more like our Lord and Savior every single day. Sometimes we fail, but we believe in learning from those failures and moving forward in faith and victory!

We want to encourage you to take a look at the various links on our site and become acquainted with us, and then join us for worship services! 

Lives are being changed here at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, and it’s to the honor and glory of Jesus Christ! We are all different, and while we have distinctive needs and situations in our lives, we believe He is more than up to the task of meeting those needs!

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us through our online contact information, or give us a call at the church at 920-674-2370 and we will do our best to answer your question(s)!

I want to encourage you to put the Lord first in your life and see what God can do through you! Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” 

May you have a blessed pilgrimage with Christ serving His creation.

Under His Great Mercy,


Pastor Salminen, Ph.D.; LPC;  LMFT
