Thank you for visiting St. Mark's website and looking us up online!
Perhaps you are new in town and looking for a place to worship on Sunday, or maybe you grew up here in the South Bay area and looking for a new spiritual home. Please allow me to introduce my church by way of a story.
There once was a local tavern in a small college town that wanted to drum up a little extra business over the Parents Weekend, and so they placed a small ad in the college newspaper. The ad read: "We're always glad to see you on Friday nights. Bring your parents to Sunday Brunch and we'll treat you like we've never seen you before." Well the local church in that town also placed an ad in the college newspaper, but their ad read: "We've never met you before, but bring your parents on Sunday morning, and we'll treat you like we see you all the time."
A rather odd way to introduce a church, but what I love about that story and why I am reminded of it, is that ever since my very first day here at St. Mark's, this community has treated my family like we’ve been here all our lives.
The greetings are heartfelt;
The smiles reveal an irresistable joy;
The handshakes turn into bear hugs;
and converstations turn into genuine friendships.
I believe you’ll experience a similar reception, whether you’re new to this area or you’ve lived here all your life. We’ll treat you like our family and treat you like brothers and sisters in Christ.
Thanks again for visiting our website. I hope you'll be encouraged enough to visit us in person!
May the peace of God be with you,
