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.

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.

Our Mission Beyond Our Doors

From issues facing our planet to challenges in our community, St. Mark's looks beyond ourselves to find ways to help.

* Homeless Shelter - support those in need

* Sandwich Program - provide food for others

Current outreach efforts by our parish

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 Melina 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 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.
