Welcome Here

Welcome to St. Mark's Episcopal Church.

It has been said that "What many people are looking for in a church is community, communion, and commitment."

St. Mark's is a community of diverse people devoted to God and to one another sharing our joys and sorrows. No one can truly be a Christian in solitude. At times in our lives when darkness overpowers us and we can not find the words to pray, the community is there to pray for us. We are many strands of threads bound together as a single cord finding our strength in unity with Christ.
St. Mark's is about communion. We are created by God to be in a relationship, first with God and then with others. Together we share a common life of faith and service, building God's Kingdom on earth and strengthening God's spiritual presence within us.
St. Mark's is committed to making God's love more visible in our town and throughout the world through our parish. We express our faith not only in our worship but in our lives, by giving of ourselves to God's service.
In order to become who God is calling us to be, we practice an ancient rhythm of prayer, study, fellowship, and worship.
We invite you to share with us in:
  • worshipping the living and loving God in a traditional and holy setting.
  • discovering God's call within a welcoming community, and
  • learning the Christian practices that empower people for service


Here at St. Mark's, we believe in the core values of inclusivity and redemption, grace and love and, above all - the transforming power of Christ. We're so excited you're interested in learning more about who we are and joining the family!

The 10:30 am service offers a choir and is more of a family service with children going off to a Children's Chapel beginning of the service and returning for communion.
