We invite you to come and visit either our 8:00 AM or 10:30 AM Sunday worship services!
Our 8:00 AM Holy Eucharist service is a simple, contemplative service without music for those who prefer worship with silent reflection.
Our 10:30 AM Holy Eucharistic service with music offers a broad repertoire of choral anthems, hymns, and a joyful blend of ancient tradition and contemporary reflection relating Christian faith to everyday life.
When you arrive for one of our Sunday services, an usher will hand you a bulletin that includes directions of our service. Please feel free to sit in any pew you feel comfortable in.
In your pew, you will find in the book racks The Book of Common Prayer and the Hymnal 1982.
While we print nearly everything in the service bulletin, The Book of Common Prayer (the smaller, red book with a cross on the front) has the entire worship service, as well as other services and prayers. If used during a worship service, anything written in italics are instructions for the worshipers.
Most of the music in our service is found in the Hymnal 1982 (the blue book). In your service bulletin if the song is not printed, the Hymn number will be indicated and can be found in this book. If there is an “S” in front of the number, this music is printed at the beginning of the hymnal.
As we sit, stand, or kneel throughout the service, we do have options. Please do what you are comfortable with or follow the congregation’s lead. As we gather at the Holy Table, we welcome all those who are baptized to come forward for Holy Communion and participate by partaking of the bread and wine (or the Body and Blood of Christ). All those who seek a deeper relationship with Christ are invited to the altar for a blessing (with arms crossed over one’s chest).
Following our service, please take a moment to introduce yourself to our clergy and stop by our Welcome Desk for current information. Following the 10:30 service, we offer a Fellowship Hour in our Parish Hall (north end of the church). This provides you a great opportunity to mingle with our parishioners and ask questions about St. Mark’s.
We also offer more information about the Episcopal Church, a Christian denomination.
