St. Mark's is committed to serving our urban neighborhood and the wider world and welcomes all people to the grace and mercy of God.
NOTICE: COVID-19, WORSHIP SERVICES, AND EVENTS
Our sharing in the Word and joy in God's grace during services at St. Mark's must continue. Beginning on Sunday, March 28, we will resume in-person worship services at Temple Beth El. All who feel comfortable to attend are welcome. We will continue practicing appropriate COVID-19 protocols to ensure everyone's health and safety. Everyone will be asked to wear a mask and practice social distancing during and after the service. We ask that people sing to themselves during the service. We will not have a fellowship gathering after the service. The Council has put together guidelines for all to follow (posted below).
The services will continue to be broadcast live on St. Mark's YouTube channel (a link direct to the live stream each Sunday will be available on the Worship page; you can also go St. Mark's channel using the button below).
We celebrate this next step toward the day when we all can return to in-person worship on Sundays.
Our Sunday worship services, fellowship hour, and other meetings will continue to be online. See the news events below for more information!

THE CHURCH & LGBTQ+ YOUTH: A Discussion
The Education Committee invites you to join in two discussions with Ross Murray, Director of Programs, Global and US South, at GLAAD. These sessions will be held on Sunday April 11th and April 25th at 11:30am on Zoom following the Fellowship hour.
Ross Murray has written Made, Known Loved: Developing LGBTQ-Inclusive Youth Ministry to address the inclusion of LGBTQ people in the life of the church, particularly youth. The book builds upon experience and wisdom Ross cultivated through his work with The Naming Project, a faith-based camp for LGBTQ youth that he founded and directed.
