child and youth ministries

     At St. Mark's, we value the importance of honoring our heritage and passing on our faith and traditions to younger members and future generations. Christian education is a very important and integral part of life at St. Mark's - our goal is to provide programs for all members to study and learn together: to deepen our faith and grow in the love of Christ.

We will join our families at The Peace so that we may participate in worship and Communion as a community.

Adult ministries

Women's Book Group

Wednesdays at 11 a.m. in the Martz Room

The book club has been meeting for about 3 years. We started by reading religious books, such as "The Hiding Place" by Corrie Ten boom; "Bad Girls of the Bible" by Liz Curtis Higgs; "Jesus the Human Face of God" by Jay Parini etc. and we added some 'best seller' novels such as "The Nightingale" and "All the Light We Cannot See".  Sometimes we watch a movie based on the book we are reading. We have some really lively discussions and good fellowship during our time together. Won't you join us?
