About St. Mark’s

Mark was one of the 4 writers who told the story of Jesus’ life in the Bible.  His book is the shortest, more focused on what Jesus did than what he said.  St. Mark’s is similar, we focus on doing. 

Making the world better because we are a faith community together.  Helping each other become better people. 

Showing the world that following Jesus is all about loving those on the edges of society — Join us on this journey!

Free Lunch

The Third Monday of each month we serve at the community Free Lunch program.  You can help by providing food or by serving at the lunch – many hands make light work!

Youth Group Sundays at 6 PM

High school students are invited to join us for fun, games, food and faith development.  Every summer we go on a week long mission trip to serve.

Christmas Stocking Project

All year long we work to make 400+ Christmas stockings that will be distributed to the food pantries, homeless shelters and other non-profits at Christmas.  Cutting, decorating, gathering stuffers – everyone can help!

Reconciling Congregation

We have had two congregational votes (2008 & 2019) to support the full inclusion of LGBTQIA+ persons in our congregation.  We support support same-sex marriage and celebrate families of all kinds.  We acknowledge the injustice in the United Methodist denomination that does not celebrate full inclusion, we have chosen to depart from the denomination on these issues.
