At St. Mark’s everyone is invited to grow in their faith, connect with others, and serve Jesus. There are a variety of opportunities through which all three of these can be accomplished at St. Mark’s.
Sunday Morning Fellowship takes place after worship service. Adults are invited to grab a cup of coffee or juice and a goodie and hang out in the Narthex (the church word for lobby). This is a great time to meet and connect with others. Some of the adults then join together for Adult Education, which is a group that takes on many different kinds of studies. If you like to stretch your mind and your heart in discipleship, this is a group for you.
The Men’s Group meets monthly for breakfast and conversation and they often take on projects or cook meals at church.
Women of the ELCA is involved in many ministries of the congregation. They host special seasonal activities like the Christmas Tea and Mother, Daughter, Sister, Friend Brunch. The WELCA also oversees Sunday morning coffee fellowship and serving for funerals. They also have monthly circle Bible study groups.
J.O.Y. or Just Older Youth is for anyone who defines themselves as such. This group of primarily retired persons gathers monthly for fellowship and programs. They really enjoy themselves and share the love of God through their joy.
Bible Studies happen throughout the year and tend to cover different books of the Bible or topics. Every study group starts new so Bible study is a good place to get connected.
