The Contemporary Worship Service at St. Mark Lutheran Church takes place every Sunday at 10:30am.  We are grateful to have 5 Worship Bands who lead our congregation with beautiful music, week in and week out.  Presenting an eclectic mix of rock, fusion, pop, and country, St. Mark has something for everyone to enjoy!

Sons of Worship has been a staple at St. Mark for over 15 years, blessing us with bluegrass, rock and a whole lotta country!

You will notice that one son is actually a daughter, but she is still one of the “dudes”. As the Bible says we are all “sons of God” and first heirs to His kingdom.


Groove along with Sons of Worship at SMLC’s 10:30am service to enjoy our own brand of southern hospitality, right here in Lindenhurst!


Members: Karissa McGill (vocals), Todd Stickney (vocals), Dave Dummer (bass), Kevin Korom (guitar), Chris Hartung (drums) & Howard Rudny (guitar).



Arise! has had many lineups over the years, because they live by one motto: The more, the merrier.

Sundays at 10:30am, you might just hear Arise! playing the same hits you enjoy on K-LOVE!

Bear Witness turns two this year, and they are more motivated than ever to bring you the classics, as well as some hidden gems in a style unlike anything you have heard before!


This group is always looking to push the envelope with warm harmonies, intricate drumming, and inspiring piano features.
