St. Mark's Lutheran Church

An Old Church With A New Mission

Dec 13, 2011

At its height, St. Mark’s Lutheran Church on Troost Avenue had a congregation of 1000 people.

Donna Simon, pastor of St. Mark’s, said this was  during the boom days of the Troost neighborhood, from the 1920s to 1960s, when the area was a bustling business and residential part of town. As the neighborhood changed, though, so did the church.
