At the very center of our life together is our worship, expressed in ritual, prayers, music, and the spoken words. Recognition of God’s presence in our lives and the call of Christ to a life of discernment, service and celebration are at the heart of our identity. We hear and wrestle with Holy Scripture, we share in Christ’s presence in the sacraments, we strive to reflect God’s unconditional love in community and we go forth strengthened to live and serve in the world. There is a variety and diversity of opportunities to worship and pray at St. Marks, for individuals and for the whole family.
