Our mission

We are a people and a place for God’s grace, claimed and called by Jesus Christ to worship, witness, learn, serve, and reach out with words and deeds of love.

Who we are

Our faith

St. Mark’s is a place in which every person is spiritually nourished. St. Mark’s is a congregation in which all persons are active in our mission.

What we believe

Our community

St. Mark’s is a church that is connected to the larger, more diverse human community in which we both offer and receive gifts.

How we connect

We acknowledge that St. Mark’s Lutheran Church by The Narrows gathers for worship on the traditional homelands of the Puyallup Tribe. We offer gratitude to the Puyallup and Coast Salish peoples as original caretakers of this sacred land and as leaders for justice in our community today. We recognize their stewardship, their forced removal, and their continued strife to live on their ancestral lands. We commit ourselves to partner with indigenous peoples as stewards of the land and water and all the resources that sustain life and to work towards reparations and healing.
