St. Mark's is passionate about helping children grow in faith and discipleship. In addition to our Sunday School program we reach out to children in the community through our Kids Zone program. This once monthly Vacation Bible School style program teaches children about the Christian faith through Bible-based games, crafts, and activities. See our Kids Zone page for more info.



Adult Classes

Bible Studies, book studies and faith formation classes are offered throughout the year. Most classes run 6 to 8 weeks and are open to everyone. Watch the church bulletin and our Facebook page for announcements of new classes forming.



We believe that followers of Christ are called to be Jesus' hands and feet in the world. St. Mark's provides opportunities to support local, regional, and international missions through our mission focus program. Additionally, opportunities for hands on service with local missions such as the United Westside Coalition, Westland Ecumenical Food Pantry and the Greater Hilltop Area Shalom Zone are also available throughout the year.


Prayer Chain

In addition to communal prayer during worship we have a team of people who offer intentional prayers for people throughout the week. Anyone can participate in the prayer chain by joining either the phone chain (lead by Joyce Venus) or the email chain (lead by Melanie Pitzer). Anyone requesting prayer can be added to the prayer chain by filling out a Prayer Request card during worship, contacting the prayer chain leaders, or emailing us at
