Sunday Morning Worship
Every Sunday God gathers people together for worship at St Mark’s. These worship services are liturgical, participatory, and centered around Word & Sacrament (the reading & singing of scripture and celebration of Holy Communion).
The 8:30a.m. worship service tends to be more laid back, using liturgical settings such as Now the Feast and Celebration and Bread of Life. Music is often led by guitar, flute, and piano.
The 11:00a.m. worship service tends to be more formal, using organ-driven settings from the hymnal.
At either service you will find a welcoming congregation gathered to sing God’s praise. You may expect to see people dressed in jeans and sneakers or shirts and ties.
On Wednesday evenings during Lent we gather at 6:00p.m. for a soup supper, followed by Evening Prayer at 7:00p.m. During Advent, we join our ecumenical partners for soup and services.
Our choirs support the congregation’s song, and prepare anthems and other music as appropriate.
The Sonrise Singers lead worship at 8:30a.m. and rehearse on Wednesdays at 5:00p.m.
The Chancel Choir leads the 11:00a.m. worship, and rehearses on Thursdays at 7:00p.m.
The Celebration Hand Bells play anthems and liturgical music on special feast days. We are blessed with 3 octaves of Malmark bells. Rehearsals are at 6:00p.m. on Thursdays.
We encourage instrumentalists to play in worship. French horns, clarinets, drum sets, bassoons, tambourines, and more all have a song to sing. Please contact the cantor if you would like to lend your talents to the congregation.
Our mechanical-action pipe organ was installed in 1997 by Martin Ott of St. Louis, MO. Click here for more information.
We also open our sanctuary for special concerts and programs throughout the year. Please check the calendar for upcoming events.
