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.

Packing Diapers for Needy Families

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

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 will explore this topic. Visitors are welcome.
