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.
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!
