YOU ARE WELCOME
at Markham Lutheran Church!
Markham Lutheran Church (MLC) is a friendly, unpretentious congregation established in Markham, Illinois almost 80 years ago. The awareness that God loves us at his own expense moves us to worship and serve him, sharing God's love with one another
and our community.
The Lutheran Church is a sacramental church, which can be summed up in the phrase "God always comes down:" by grace through Baptism, God's Word, and Holy Communion. At worship, we meet God's grace in the word, water, bread, and wine. Through these means, God strengthens us in our confidence and faith in him and our love and concern for each other and the world. Wherever you may be on your spiritual path, whatever life has thrown at you, at Markham Lutheran Church you will find a warm welcome; but more importantly, you will encounter the Savior, Jesus Christ. The perfect congregation does not exist. Human beings make mistakes, and we let each other down sometimes. That's why each week we experience confession and absolution, dip our hands in the font, wish each other "the peace of the Lord," and partake of the body and blood of Christ. But our Lord, "...the same yesterday and today and forever" (Hebrews 13:8, ESV), never fails.
As a visitor, we welcome you in the name of Jesus Christ. As a prospective member, we invite you to discover how becoming a part of our church family may serve your needs, and, when you're ready, to explore how your talents may be used in the Lord's work in our congregation and the community.
Come celebrate JESUS!
