At the heart of our Baptismal Covenant is the call to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves; to strive for justice and peace among all people; and to respect the dignity of every human being (Book of Common Prayer, p. 305). Through St. Mark's, you’ll find opportunities to use your talents, passions, and resources to serve God and your neighbor. Whether you are drawn to ministry behind the scenes or out front, discover the joy of serving within our community and beyond.
