Share a story

A air conditioned and headed handicap accessible facility with emergency generator back up and ample on site parking. St. Mark's has a large mutipurpose room which can easily hold 200, a worship space for 250, a large kitchen with two refrigerators, two large stoves, a chest freezer and a dish sanitizer. We have ample bathrooms, a nursery, two meetings rooms, one of which is a smart classroom with flatscreen TV. A chapel, and three youth education rooms. We also have a thrift store and a large unfinished basement which may be used for emergency storage and distribution of needed goods. The facility is located on 6 acres with a large playground, and open fields as well as tree covered areas. Finally, there is a memorial garden located on site.

Our worship style is flexible and inclusive. The 10am service offers music from multiple different traditions and resources. Children are welcomed into the service and are often seen dancing in front of the altar when the choir is singing of musical offertories are given. We strive to welcome all into a life in Christ.
