At St. Mark you are welcome just the way you are. Dress up or dress down.
Come with your doubts and your questions. We're all in this walk of faith together. Come expecting God to meet you as we worship together.
You can expect ...
A warm greeting.
A message of grace and hope in Jesus.
Everyone is welcome, no matter your background.
Each Sunday service will have a time of confession and absolution, readings from the Bible, a message from the pastor, prayers, and Holy Communion, open to all.
Our Sunday worship begins at 10:30 and lasts between 60-90 minutes with organ- or piano-led contemporary and traditional hymns that have been popular to Christians over the years.
We believe that growing in faith means growing in our understanding of God's word, the Bible. We provide many and varied Bible study opportunities for all ages and stages.
