Making Christ Known with Love

All are Welcome, and Visitors are Expected

           Thank You for visiting our WEB Site.  We are glad you came.


         Welcome to St Mark’s.  I do hope that you will come and visit us in person. As followers of Christ, within the Anglican tradition, we strive to build up a loving community that will be a beacon of love and hope to our world.

         We are a diverse and friendly congregation and try to welcome everyone as we would welcome Jesus. Join us as we reach out in joy into the world and in the name of Jesus to be of help to others. We take our ministry seriously, but always keep a good sense of humor about ourselves.

         Come and see.  Come and Visit. Come and participate in our worship and fellowship.  We have regular activities for everyone.


God’s blessings to You and Yours.


Yours in Christ,

St. Mark’s Lenten Program 2015

Be Prepared!!


February 25 - “It’s Complicated” is a program that will be presented by Ken Knutsen, who is CEO of the Huntington Hills Center for Health and Rehabilitation.


March 4 - Maintaining a Spiritual Life will be led by Mo. Lauren McLeavey partnering with June Christian a licensed Mental Health Counselor.


March 11 - Be Prepared- Most of us aren’t very excited about not having control over our lives, at least those parts that truly matter. Our health care is clearly one of those areas where we want to have some say and yet many of us have not taken some very basic steps to assure that when we aren’t able to make decisions for ourselves we will have an advocate whose has legal standing to assure our choices are honored.


March 18 - Preparing Your Will - “What is going to happen to everything I have? – On anyone’s Bucket List this one is pretty simple!


March 25 - Celebrate Your Life – Father Rick Simpson, with assistance from musicians, clergy and volunteers will conduct this workshop designed to help you prepare the celebration of your life with handouts and planning material you can take home.
