To Connect and Equip People To live to be the Hands and Feet of Jesus

 
 
At St. Mark’s, mission isn’t just going and serving others. Mission is the unique way that God has gifted each of us to multiply the life of Jesus. Mission is boldly going where the Holy Spirit leads. Mission is living our lives as a reflection of grace that Jesus has already given to us. We want to connect people to God’s mission and equip them to live it where they live, work, and play.

Our History
 
 
 
In the late 1800s, women, men, and children would stand on the banks of the Fox River and watch people get off boats in what is now known as St. Charles. In the early 1900s, Pastor F. G. Miessler saw this same picture and said that everyone who comes to St. Charles needs a church to welcome them and for them to call home. 110 years later, we continue to be a growing church that creates communities of belonging where all people can call home.
