Spiritual Growth

“…that you may be filled with the knowledge of God’s will in all spiritual wisdom

and understanding, so that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God.”   Colossians 1:9b-10


Joining with the angels and the saints of all times and places, we raise our hearts and minds to the Lord in praise, prayer and study. All so that we may mature in our faith journey and grow in our relationship with God.


We do this ministry of spiritual growth by:

  • Worshipping the Lord with liturgy and music that is both traditional and varied.
  • Offering and supporting prayers for each other, for the church and for all that are in need.
  • Learning and developing the faith in classes and study for children through adults.

Book Club

Many of us enjoy reading so why not start a book club here at St. Mark? 


Susan Miller had just this thought and decided to act on it! 


At our first meeting, in the church parlor, we will be talking about All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. It is not too late to join—just stay tuned for the next book selection. Just to clarify, the Book Club is for all readers, male and female, young and old, who enjoy all types of books!

Haux, France - Don't forget a fork if you're in this southern French town on Easter Monday. Each year a giant omelet is served up in the town's main square. And when we say giant, we mean giant: The omelet uses more than 4,500 eggs and feeds up to 1,000 people. The story goes, when Napoleon and his army were traveling through the south of France, they stopped in a small town and ate omelets. Napoleon liked his so much that he ordered the townspeople to gather their eggs and make a giant omelet for his army the next day.
