Low's Mission Statement:
Low's Lutheran Church seeks to be a visible presence in the community, committed to love and care for each other and the world. Through Faith in our Lord Jesus, we worship and pray, teach and learn, live and serve.
The ELCA Mission Statement:
Marked with the cross of Christ forever. We are claimed, gathered, and sent for the sake of the world.
Pastor John Mark Beam III was called to Low’s in 2013. Previously he served at St. Enoch Lutheran Church, Kannapolis, beginning in 1999. A native of Lincoln County, NC, he began his journey of faith at Cedar Grove Lutheran Church, Vale, NC, where he was baptized and confirmed, and later was a member at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Newton, NC, where he experienced his call to ministry. Pastor John Mark is a graduate of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill with a BA degree in history and political science and a MA in history. Following several years working with history museums in High Point and Gaston County, he entered Trinity Lutheran Seminary, Columbus, Ohio. Pastor John Mark served an internship at Abiding Hope Lutheran Church, Littleton, Colorado, and did a study tour of the Holy Land while in seminary.
Pastor John Mark is married to a fellow pastor, Constance Jane Garrett, a native of Springfield, Ohio. They met in seminary and were married in 1999.
At Low’s, we strive to offer a loving church family in which you will feel a great sense of belonging as we earnestly seek to become the people that God wants us to be.
Low’s congregation was organized in 1771.
The current church building is the fourth and was completed at our bicentennial in 1971.
We are blessed with a worship-centric sanctuary complemented by a Casavant pipe organ.
An extensive education building was completed in 1958 and houses the fellowship hall, classrooms, and church office.
Worship is liturgical and traditional, and Holy Communion is celebrated. Our faith is found in the Word of God expressed and interpreted through the three historic creeds of the Church and the Lutheran Confessions. Please come and join us as we grow in faith and grace through the power of the Holy Spirit.
LUTHERAN DISASTER RESPONSE
Beginning on July 27, a line of
severe storms dumped record
amounts of rain on eastern
Kentucky, overflowing rivers
and creeks onto streets and
neighborhoods. Rising waters
are damaging infrastructure,
including roads, bridges and
power lines, which hinders
rescue efforts. The flooding has
destroyed hundreds of homes and
other buildings and disrupted the
lives of families.
As the waters recede and the full
scope of the damage is assessed,
Lutheran Disaster Response will
work with the Indiana-Kentucky
Synod and local communities
to focus on long-term needs.
We anticipate that the response
will include rebuilding homes,
replacing lost household items and
providing emotional and spiritual
care to survivors. This is in
addition to our ongoing response
to the December 2021 tornadoes
in western Kentucky.
Your gifts will support flood
survivors. Gifts to “U.S.
Flooding” will be used in full
(100%) to assist those affected
by tornadoes now and during
the long recovery. Together,
we can provide immediate and
long-lasting support. Give today
to support this response and
others like it.

There is just nothing like the sound of a pipe organ. The music in worship from these pipes awakens our spirit.

Dear People of Low’s,
If we read the gospel accounts concerning Jesus
closely, we will find words from the Lord that
are at times confusing, puzzling, and challeng-
ing. No one who reads the gospels (or any part
of Scripture) seriously will come away without
feeling responsibility to respond, whether by
changing how one lives or what one values. It is fashionable for some
to read God’s Word and focus on how it speaks about “other” peo-
ple—the ones we perceive as sinners. But if we allow God’s Word to
