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.
