Welcome!

Welcome to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church!

Worship at St. Mark’s – Sundays

Sunday service:  9:15 beginning May 26th for summer hours.

We welcome all to join us!  Full participation in our worship services at St. Mark’s is open and you are completely welcome to attend – including receiving communion at our service.  Our worship is a sacred time for spiritual renewal as we hear the Word of God in Scripture and the sermon, and as we share the Eucharist together.

Life at our church:

St. Mark’s has an active children’s program. Music and adult education, outreach and service, care for one another and healing prayers, all are part of our life together as a parish.  Join us!

The Rev. Thomas James Brown will be 10th bishop

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.

The Peace Pole

Ways to help

* The Peace Pole – say a prayer for world peace

* Food Bank – share with our neighbors

* 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 Program for Children

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 or packing diapers for needy families

Learn more about 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? 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 allowed us to learn more from many speakers and discuss ways to help.
