60th Anniversary is this year. See the information page for details.
St. Mark’s is a growing mid-sized congregation, seeking to be true to Christ’s command that we love one another. We are seeking to maintain a family caring atmosphere. We seek to meet the needs of a variety of people and of their lives. Therefore, we enjoy a variety of worship styles. We have a Prayer Garden to the south of the Church.
Please check the Information page for more detailed information.
