Welcome!

Welcome to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church!

Worship at St. Mark’s – Sundays 8 and 10:15

We welcome all to join us!  Full participation in our worship services at St. Mark’s is open and you are completely welcome to attend – including receiving communion at our service.  Our worship is a sacred time for spiritual renewal as we hear the Word of God in Scripture and the sermon, and as we share the Eucharist together.

Life at our church:

St. Mark’s has an active children’s program. Music and adult education, outreach and service, care for one another and healing prayers, all are part of our life together as a parish.  Join us!

Last week’s Adult Education: Join us for a session on Prayer with our intern, George Sheats. Prayer is the most common topic about which people seek spiritual direction. As Episcopalians, we have a rich common prayer life. How do we take that practice out into our daily lives? We will exploring prayer using Matthew 6:1- 18 as our jumping off point. We will talk about how we pray, where we pray and when to pray. We will discuss our own individual prayer practices. So in the meantime, I encourage to read the passage from Matthew and spend some time thinking about your prayer life.

Music is an important part of life at St. Mark's, both as part of our worship and also as a gift to the wider Waterville community.

* In worship, singing hymns and prayers

* Enjoying our choir

* Appreciating a range of organ music

* Involving our children

Our Lively Program for Children

At St. Mark's, we welcome children as an important part of our life together. Sunday activities for children and their families are focused on learning by doing. For example:

* Participating in worship in the Family Eucharist

* Outreach projects: making chicken pies for the Homeless Shelter or packing diapers for needy families

Learn more about children and family programs

Our Directors of Children and Youth programs are Jonathan Knock and Melinda Corey.

Pastoral Care

How do we as Christians embody our faith? The entire "Body of Christ" is called, as baptized Christians, to love and care for one another and for those in need. Learn more about why Pastoral Care is vital to our mission.

Our fall series on the "Opiate Crisis and the Faith Community" on Thursday evenings allowed us to learn more from many speakers and discuss ways to help.
