Who We Are

As you seek to learn more about St. Mark, you may be faced with the question, “Where do I start?” Here’s the simple answer - start with Jesus Christ.

St. Mark exists to introduce you to Jesus, the God of forgiveness and grace. Although we are God’s special creation, created in His image, we missed the mark. We often want to play God instead of honor Him. We often want God’s place instead of God’s love. We have all sinned and fallen short of God’s holy standards.

Our sin cost God’s Son dearly. His Son, Jesus, came to our world and lived a holy life so He could perfectly satisfy God’s requirements for salvation. He succeeded and was then sacrificed on a cross. It was the only way to remedy the wall between God and us.

But Jesus conquered death. Shortly after the cross, He physically rose to life. Through faith alone in Jesus we can live in relationship with God again -- forever. So begin at St. Mark with Jesus! If you’d like more information talk to any of us or call us.

Begin anew with Jesus!

Our Services

What are services like?
We invite you to join us each week as we worship together. Our services at our De Pere campus begin with upbeat, contemporary praise and worship music. We encourage everyone to participate. Don't worry...we didn't know the songs at first either. God comes to us in Word and sacrament; we respond with prayer and praise. Our service at our Green Bay campus follows the liturgy of the Western Rite, highlighting the great hymns and responses of Christianity. Where ever you worship, we want you to leave the service renewed and enlightened.

What is the community like?
Each weekend at St. Mark you’ll find a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that is Christ-centered. A section in the middle of our service program for notes and two large screens help you make the most of the practical and relevant message. Children are well cared for our loving, quality Little Lambs Nursery and parents can care for their children in our Parent’s Room. If you are visiting for the first time, we will not embarrass you, have you stand up, or ask you to give money. We know that many people want to check out the church and “be anonymous” for a while—and that’s fine with us! Come in, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and see if this is the church for you. If you're concerned about what you should wear, please don't be. You’ll find everything from casual clothes to business suits at our weekend service. Come in what is comfortable for you, because St. Mark is not about what you look like or what you wear.

Leadership View all

Dr. John Parlow
Lead Pastor

As lead pastor of St. Mark Lutheran Church, Dr. John Parlow is responsible for the overall vision and direction of the ministry, also serving as its main preacher. He came to St. Mark in 1994. Pastor Parlow will tell you, he “never gets tired of sharing God’s work and watching lives change.” Pastor Parlow and his wife, Lydia, have been married for 28 years. The couple is blessed with three sons: Luke, Micah and Seth. And the Parlow family doesn’t stop at five – Pastor John and Lydia serve as foster parents for abandoned dogs. “We always seem to be getting another one!” he professes. Visit Pastor Parlow’s office and you’ll find he’s an avid reader, usually juggling multiple books at once. He likes to read about the apologetics, cultural trends and leadership. His other interests include pistol shooting, martial arts and craft beers. What might you not know about Pastor Parlow? “Although I spend a lot of time in front of crowds of people, I am a pretty private person,” he says.

  • I was a Catholic for 60+ years and at one Sunday when I showed up I am one of the pastors were talking about Nehemiah and during that time it’s seem to me that the Holy Spirit was just telling me I was home I love Saint Marks and I love the people there God bless
