OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE

    St. Mark’s is not just a weekend church! We take seriously our responsibility to serve and care for our neighbors, wherever they are. That means getting involved, sharing love in very real ways.


    When you come to St. Mark’s, we do more than invite you to worship; we invite you to put your faith into action. Whether your interest is education, housing, food, social justice, or needs around the globe, you can make a difference.
