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 >
