Our address is:
St. Mark's Lutheran Church
3651 South Vermont Avenue
Los Angeles, California 90007
We're at the corner of Vermont and 36th Place, across the street from Taco Bell and USC.
We love visitors and hope you'll join us.
We understand that you might have some concerns, especially when going somewhere for the first time. Maybe you’re afraid of looking or feeling out of place, worried you might have to say or do something that would make you feel uncomfortable. Our St. Marks Lutheran Family welcomes everyone, from all walks of life.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
You’re welcome to wear any modest clothes that you feel comfortable in.
DO I HAVE TO DONATE MONEY?
We do have offering time; it’s complete up to you if you would like to donate.
DO I HAVE TO PARTICIPATE?
As a visitor you do not have to participate, its entirely up to you. You can simply sit back and enjoy the service.
WILL I FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE ATTENDING ALONE?
Many of our members come to St. Marks by themselves each week. However, if you’d like someone to attend with you for the first time, feel free to contact our church office at (323) 731-2157. It’s always hard to be new, regardless of the situation, but in time you’ll get to know the other members and feel more at home.
HOW LONG DOES The SErVICE LAST?
Our primary family worship service begins at 10am on Sunday mornings and lasts approximately one hour. You’re welcome to come alone or bring your family; children are present in virtually all our congregations.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING SERVCE?
We sing hymns (hymn books are provided). Church members say opening and closing prayers. We partake of the sacrament (communion), which consists of prepared bread, wine and juice, blessed and passed to members of the congregation.
