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.

Our shared journey in faith continues through the week with Bible/book study, choir and quilting/prayer shawl ministries and fellowship, plus outreach projects.

We at St. Mark's extend a warm welcome for you to come and join us!

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

Pastoral Care // Sabbatical

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.
