Spacious Christianity, A Public Church

At St. Mark’s, you define your commitment in ways that make sense to you and you can be sure that all expressions of commitment make St. Mark’s what we want it to be. Commitment is a recognition that you are essential to St. Mark’s and also helps us love and engage more in how St. Mark’s enlarges and enriches our lives. Commitment creates our solid core and makes us profoundly open to the world around us – the world that God so loves with and through us.
