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]

They Will Be Heard
Sunday, December 15
These words, recently spoken in response to violence in the United States and elsewhere, call for an in-depth exploration of factors underlying violence in the world and how we can at least begin to curtail such actions. One approach, emerging on the threshold of the modern world, is grounded in intellectual and cultural history, namely, a pluralistic mindset that can help foster peace not only within our own country and personal lives, but also in our relationships with the world at large. Come join us for what promises to be a lively discussion of this perspective as it exists in such cultural forms as art, literature, religion, and science, and how we can work together to implement it in a world marked by growing violence.
Current & Upcoming Newcomer Events!
Please read on below about our current and upcoming events for newcomers or new members. For more information on any of these events, please see our New to St. Mark’s page, or contact the church office. We hope to see you at one of these events!
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 fall classes have completed. We will have another opportunity in Spring 2014 so stay tuned!
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 spring of 2014.
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 is December 8, 2013.
