St. Mark’s folks like nothing better than to have a good time together serving others!  We are in the words of one member, "a church who prays facing outward."  We actively listen for God's call to us in the world and respond and rely upon the Holy Spirit to guide and help us in our work.  


While we are not the largest or wealthiest of congregations - we are a remarkably generous one. This community puts its money and its energy into projects and programs that touch the lives of our neighbors and partner organizations.  Our Outreach and Justice activities are selected and supported based upon our resources - both physical and fiscal!  


We believe that our work can and will make a difference in the our city and our world.
