Children

At St. Mark’s, we welcome children as an important part of our life together with activities for children that are focused on learning by doing.

Our lively children and family program includes:

* Participating in worship in the Family Eucharist

* Outreach projects: making chicken pies for the Homeless Shelter or packing diapers for needy families

Learn more about here about our 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? As baptized Christians, we are called to love and care for one another and for those in need.

Our fall series on the “Opiate Crisis and the Faith Community” on Thursday evenings allowed us to learn more from many speakers and discuss ways to help.

Learn more about why Pastoral Care is vital to our mission.
