The Advent Journey Begins......



Advent Joseph_and_Mary 


St. Mark's Advent Worship every Wednesday


6:30 p.m. until Christmas



St. Mark's WELCA group is encouraging


donations to ELCA Good Gifts.

ELCA Good Gifts provides more than 50 different

gift-giving options that grow the church,

fight hunger and transform lives.

Your family, your congregation and your community can say “goodbye” to traditional gift-giving and “hello” to meaningful gifts that really make a difference in the world.

Buy a cow, a few chickens, an entire farm!

There are many options.

Please consider giving to this project!


Check the calendar for monthly

and seasonal activities!!
