Welcome!

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.

Summer Baptism

Our shared journey in faith is enriched with Bible/book study, choir and quilting/prayer shawl ministries and fellowship, plus outreach projects.

+++ Come This Sunday!! +++
Our fall schedule begins! Join us for worship and learn all the exciting things planned for the next few months. Programs for the children, outreach efforts, opportunities for adult education and singing in the choir are just a few. Newcomers are always welcome!

Music


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

* Offering concerts

Learn more about Music at St. Mark's.

Our Lively Children’s Program

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

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.

The Rev. John Balicki will be away on vacation until August 29. For pastoral needs up to Tuesday Aug. 29, please contact the church office at 872-7869 or stmarkschurch60@gmail.com and your concern will be addressed.
