Invite. Encounter. Respond.
Our mission is to invite others into relationships to encounter the love of Christ and respond by blessing others and transforming the world. We live into this mission through our worship, small groups, service projects, and missions.
To be a spiritual home where people encounter the love of Christ through life-giving relationships. As a community, we know we won't always be in agreement, but covenant to: love and forgive, encourage one another to grow in our faith and God-given talents, to create an environment of experimentation and exploration, and to always welcome the stranger and guest, helping others to find a home here, too.
Rev. Mark Marston was appointed to Park Church in July 2023 as pastor. He has most recently served at First United Methodist Church in Cheyenne, WY. His past appointments also include Aitkin United Methodist Church, so he is not a stranger to the Brainerd Lakes Area! He joins our church family with his wife, Beth, and daughter, Rachel.
Rev. Mark has a bachelor's degree in General Biology from Sonoma State University and a master's degree in Divinity from the Iliff School of Theology. He has been ordained for 29 years.
We’re grateful for each member and volunteer who helps us live into our mission. Behind everything we do are teams of great leaders who help us plan, discern, and live out our mission. Our leaders include:
Janie W., Coordinator
Our Family Ministry Team is a group of volunteers who plan events for families, outreach, and mission. This is a fun group of event planners and mission coordinators! Our primary focus is on Summer Family Fun Bashes, Parents' Night Out, and other events that support the families of our church and community.
