Come Be a Part of Our Story


"We started attending St. Mark's church around the same time our son, Austin, started Junior Kindergarten at St. Mark's Preschool. We have found a very welcoming and friendly environment in St. Mark's where you are not just another face in the crowd. The church and its members are devoted to the betterment of not only the church, but of the school and surrounding community. The Sunday School teachers are wonderful with the children and keep the kids engaged with Bible stories, crafts, and games. We really enjoy the close knit community between the church and the school."
