Over the past few months our congregation was asked to participate in a new synodical pilot program called the "Life of Faith" initiative. St. Mark’s is one of only five congregations in our synod selected to participate in it. This process will be happening over the next 3 years as we explore together ways in which God is calling our church to serve more deeply our community. The "Life of Faith" process seeks to help people discover the blessings of ministry in ordinary life. As a congregation we will be exploring more about how God is calling us to serve as a community and as individual disciples.
