Jesus commanded us to love one another. One of the best ways for St. Mark’s members to honor this command within the church is to actively love through an educational group. We study the Bible together, but group members also have the opportunity to love and be loved.

Praying for and supporting each other in the challenges of life is one of the greatest ways we can love like Jesus. The important thing is that you start living life with other believers. Groups are available for all ages, locations and meeting schedules.

It’s easier to journey through life with the support and accountability of like-minded believers. So why wait any longer? Join with us, and let’s honor Christ.

Ark Class

Beginning on December 16th - The Case for Christmas. Join us for the next four weeks as the ARK Class invites you to consider why Christmas matters in the first place. 

Who was in the manger that first Christmas morning? Some say he would become a great moral leader. Others, a social critic. Still others view Jesus as a profound philosopher, a rabbi, a feminist, a prophet, and more. Many are convinced he was the divine Son of God.

Who was he really? And how can you know for sure?

Consulting experts on the Bible, archaeology, and messianic prophecy, award-winning legal journalist Lee Strobel searches out the true identity of the child in the manger. If Jesus really was God in the flesh, then there ought to be credible evidence, including:

  • Eyewitness Evidence - Can the biographies of Jesus be trusted?
  • Scientific Evidence - What does archaeology reveal?
  • Profile Evidence - Did Jesus fulfill the attributes of God?
  • Fingerprint Evidence - Did Jesus uniquely match the identity of the Messiah?

The Case for Christmas invites you to consider why Christmas matters in the first place. Somewhere beyond the traditions of the holiday lies the truth. 

Alpha Class 

We are all familiar with the story of Daniel in the lions’ den but how is Daniel's story relevant  to us today? Beginning Sunday, Nov. 4, the Alpha Class will begin a Bible study to explore the stories of Daniel and his friends.  It will offer opportunities for us to consider our calling as faithful disciples in troubling times. We invite you to join us Sunday mornings in the Parish Hall at 9:30 a.m.

The Believers Class 


Bible Study

Does the book of Daniel have any significance for us today? Or is it simply a good book for children’s stories like “Daniel in the Lion’s Den”? Join us on Wednesday afternoons as we review the book of Daniel.

Roughly 2,600 years ago a Judean teenager was taken captive by the rapidly ascending Babylonian Empire—a governmental juggernaut of unstoppable military strength, great wealth and technological advancement. While such an event normally led to a life of misery as a slave, God had something else in mind for this young man.

Daniel—the teenager who had been taken captive—came to realize that God was miraculously working with him, and not only to preserve his life. God was revealing through him major prophecies of future world-ruling empires.

As a resident of the world’s premier capital city and an honored wise man in King Nebuchadnezzar’s court, Daniel demonstrated God’s superiority over the pagan gods of Babylon. He also left a legacy of faithful obedience to God in spite of grave trials and difficulty.

Discover God’s outline of world-ruling empires and a message of hope for the future. The book of Daniel has continuing relevance to us today.
