Rector's Supergroup

Our Rector, Fr. Mark Tusken, gathers several Cornerstone Groups each Saturday morning at 8:00-9:15 am in the Fellowship Hall. The typical schedule is:

This class taught by Associate Rector Father Marcus meets every Sunday at 9:00 am in the Chapel. The scripture and topics through Lent will be matched to the KINGS all-church study. Join at any time.

Alpha signAlpha

Alpha provides an opportunity to explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. The next Alpha course will be in the Fall of 2020.

Inquirers Class

Learn the beliefs, practices, and history of the Anglican tradition of Christianity as we express them at St. Mark's. The Inquirers Class is taught by our Rector, Fr. Mark with many opportunities to ask questions.

The next Inquirers' class begins on March 11 and goes to May 6.

Confirmation at St. Marks is an expression of mature commitment to Christ and to His church. If you have attended Inquirers Class or Alpha, you have received the necessary instruction to make this important step.
