Hello, and welcome to St. Mark's. Sundays are bustling at St. Mark's with Christian education for all ages. Our worship and music nourishes us all. Everyone is invited to partake of the Holy Communion at our Lord's table. Children are always welcome.
We provide a program brochure of the entire service, so everyone can be included.
We welcome our parishioners Jonathan Knock and Melinda Corey as our new Coordinators of Children and Youth. Our shared journey in faith continues with Bible/book study, choir and quilting/prayer shawl ministries and fellowship, plus outreach projects.

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.
The children of the church will make Valentines for those who are home bound January 22nd. Part of caring for others is showing them they are not forgotten.
