Welcome to Our Community!
Whether you have already visited us or are researching the internet for a church to attend, we welcome you to this exciting and growing community of faith.
Most of us are searching for something beyond ourselves, for meaningful connections, a place where our children receive a sense of the sacred and our teenagers feel comfortable, safe and supported, for the freedom to ask our questions and discover awe, for a sense of belonging. Whatever your reasons, we invite you to explore St. Mark’s, a place where we come as we are, accept each other for who we are, strive to grow and open to change along the way.
St. Mark's Episcopal Church is an extended family of loving people bound by faith in Christ. We seek to deepen our relationship with God, strengthen our faith community, support each other, and serve our neighbors. We do this by celebrating our faith through meaningful liturgy and prayer, sharing our stories and traditions, and participating in ministries of fellowship, compassion and justice.
“So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” — 2 Corinthians 5:17 [NRSV]

Bring the family for dinner and a fun night out as we have a last fling before Lent!
Volunteers are needed to prep batter & flip pancakes, to bring fruit salad and clean up crew are invited to sign up at the poster in the narthex.
Forty weekdays before Easter, we come together to mark the beginning of the Lenten season with Ash Wednesday. This is a devout service of remembrance. We kneel and pray as we re- member our own humanity, our tendency to fall and be lifted by God’s love, and the source of our beginning and end as we hear the words “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” The symbolic marking of our foreheads with burnt ashes is taken from the traditional Jewish sign of penitence, and becomes a doorway through which we pass to enter the Holy Season of Lent.
Join us on this sacred day, Wednesday, March 5 – 12:15pm in the chapel or 7:30pm in the church.

Clergy Led Inquirer’s Classes
Twice a year we offer a course for those interested in learning more about the Anglican Communion, the Episcopal Church, and St. Mark’s. Our next class begins February 11 at 7:00 pm in the library. Click here to RSVP.
Each spring and fall, visitors and new members of Saint Mark’s are invited to an informal gathering at a parishioner’s home. These events give people an opportunity to meet other people new to Saint Mark’s as well as an opportunity to meet established members and clergy. Our next dessert will be in the spring.
New Member Welcome Sunday
Two Sundays a year are set aside for welcoming new members to Saint Mark’s. During both the 8:00 and 10:00 services, those who have become members are recognized by name and with prayer. Our next Welcome Sunday will be in late spring.
