We are so glad you found your way to Saint Mark's Episcopal Church. If you are new to the Episcopal Church or new to St. Mark’s then we are looking for you and would love to get to know you.
We are a shared ministry parish, that seeks to “Know Christ and make Christ Known” in all aspects of parish, community, and diocesan life.
Our church is not large, but we are a lively family of faith, deeply rooted in historic faith traditions; in each other’s lives; in our mission outreach in Botetourt County and in the shared gifts and vision of clergy and lay shared leadership.
St. Mark's has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community and yet we embrace our identity as an old church doing new things. We hope you will join us for service on Sunday to experience our Eucharistic fellowship, our growth in mission and our hospitality to all who come seeking to share our life in Christ.Hear Sermons >
Nobody! Therefore --- Come to the Fincastle Fire House on Saturday, October 5th for the Twenty-fourth Annual Spaghetti Supper any time from 4:00 to 7:15 for a delicious plate of spaghetti, salad, breadsticks and dessert (homemade variety!). Meals are available for take-out too! But we'd love to see you chowing down on your plate of spaghetti and have a chance to say hello.
Tickets are available at the church office (M-Th, 9-2:30), in the Narthex of the church, or from Mahlon Kidd. Is there a cost for the tickets? Yes. . . If you are 12 years of age and older, the cost is $10.00 (pretty reasonable). And for the young 'uns under 12 - it's FREE!
There's a reason why we've been dishing out spaghetti for 24 years . . . it's THAT good! We have some awesome sauce cookers around here. Come and taste for yourself.
Join us for Appalachian Vespers, a casual, informal service that takes place on the third Sunday of each month from March to December at 4pm.

Each service features different local musicians.
Next service: October 20th with music from Boys Home of Virginia
