Worship Service Times
St. Mark offers three worship services each weekend. We basically follow the Presbyterian order of worship (PCUSA).
Feel free to ‘come as you are’ to any of our services. Enjoy a cup of coffee in our Narthex (the lobby near the main Sanctuary) before or after the service. We also have a small gift for our guests to take home. Our Welcome Center and our Ushers (those folks with red badges) are available to answer your questions. Welcome! We are glad you found us! If you can’t be with us on a given weekend sermons are available on-line here

If you need a little assistance when you come to church, all you have to do is ask! Someone from our congregation would be willing to walk with you if you feel insecure, share an umbrella, hold a door open or get a wheelchair from the office.
Clearly marked handicap parking spaces can be found at both of our main entrances to the church. Our west entrance – turn left after entering the parking lot – (labeled “Matthew” over the door) has automatic door openers. We have an elevator to access our lower level, and accessible restrooms and drinking fountains.
Hearing amplification devices are available for use in the Sanctuary and can be picked up from the sound technician in the back of the Sanctuary
Large print hymnals are also available.
A wheelchair is available in the Narthex.
An Usher (those folks wearing red badges) will be happy to help provide these items to you.
The St. Mark bus, providing service for many areas, is available if you are unable to drive to church, and are able to get in and out of the St. Mark bus. Our St. Mark bus is equipped with a wheel chair lift. Please contact the Church office to make arrangements for this complimentary service.
