“Come Holy Spirit, our souls inspire,and lighten with celestial fire. Keep far our foes; keep peace at home; where you are guide, no ill can come. Your blessed gifts from above are comfort, life, and fire of love.”

Veni Creator Spiritus

The focus of our Christian community is upon worship – not only as fellowship – but as a response to God’s Word in our lives. The sacrament of the Holy Eucharist is at the center of our service, and unites us with Christ as His church in a mystical way beyond human understanding. Through our worship we prepare ourselves to make a difference in the world as modern day disciples of Jesus Christ.

“Gentle Worship”

First Sundays at 9:00. This liturgy is designed to be especially senstive to people with special needs. It includes projected texts and images, as well as an anthem by a member of Saint Mark’s Choir. It lasts about thirty minutes.


  • The Holy Eucharist is also celebrated in the retirement communities of Friendship Village (second Thursdays) and First Community (third Thursdays) at 11:00 am.

The principal act of worship each week is The Holy Eucharist, when the community gathers to hear God’s Word spoken and interpreted, sing, pray and gather to receive the bread and wine of Holy Communion. The 8:00 service on Sunday is quieter and more formal, while 10:30 often includes one of the choirs and is the largest gathering. On Wednesdays at noon the Eucharist is celebrated with prayers for healing, and often commemorates a figure of inspiration from the life of the church.

The seasons of the church year take on a spiritual significance, and each have their own tone, color and services as found in the Book of Common Prayer. Advent begins the year, anticipating the joy of Christmas and Epiphany, while the introspection and quietness of Lent help prepare us for the drama of Holy Week and Easter’s promise of Resurrection and eternal life. Pentecost is a powerful reminder of God’s presence in our world, and moves us into a long season of seeking and living into the grace of the Holy Spirit until the cycle begins again.

Throughout the year the milestones of our individual lives are celebrated through Baptisms, Confirmations, Marriages, Memorial Services and many others. Sung services such as Evensong ground our spiritual journey in the great traditions of our faith, while Advent Lessons & Carols and the Christmas Pageant keep the story of our salvation alive.
