We're glad you're here!
Whether you have attended Saint Mark's in person before or are joining us now for the first time, we're glad you're here.
Parenting during a pandemic is full of unexpected joys and struggles. The days are full, our kids' feelings are big, and our roles as parent and professional, educator and coach, partner and friend are now blended together in messy, unexpected ways. We believe there is beauty and promise emerging in the midst of the mess. That belief is rooted in the life of Jesus, who blended humanity and divinity together in his own life, death, and resurrection.
Our Christian faith proclaims God is in the midst of messes, and marks each moment of our daily work and play as holy. Below, you'll find some ways we are banding together at Saint Mark's to remember and reflect God's love in our daily lives at home. Engage in the ways that best support you and your children, and know that we are praying for you!

CURRENTLY ON HIATUS FOR THE SUMMER — STAY TUNES FOR UPDATES IN THE FALL
Sunday School at 10 a.m. for kids through 5th grade is currently meeting—on Zoom and in person—on alternate weeks!
On Sunday, February 13, families are invited to meet on the porch following the 9 a.m. service to walk over to the playground at Volunteer Park. We’ll be celebrating love of family, friends, and neighbors with some Valentine fun.
On Sunday, February 20, we won’t meet because of the holiday weekend, but we’ll be back on February 27.
Whenever we meet on Zoom, kids in church are welcome to join us in person in the Carriage House for Building Faith Brick by Brick. Please email Canon Wendy Barrie firstname.lastname@example.org to receive a brief weekly email update.
Children's Chapel, which used to be offered during the sermon at the 9 a.m. Sunday morning Eucharist service, will remain on hiatus at least until this fall. Stay tuned for updates on this offering in 2022.
