St. Mark’s is a progressive faith community centered in worship, inclusive to all, active in loving service and generous with the gifts that God has given us. Through our practices of worship, welcome, nurture, service and giving we are becoming a community and growing in intimacy with God. The things we really desire cannot be bought but must be lovingly crafted through relationships. Together we are blessed to be making something beautiful for God in our neighborhood.
We have a strong ministry to children, not only those who are members of our congregation but also those in our neighborhood through St. Mark's Montessori School, our primary outreach ministry. Its serves children ages 18 months to 6 years old. We strive to be good stewards of God's creation and have established New Energy @ St. Mark's Solar Project, the first of its kind in our Diocese. We are home to the New Mexico School of Sacred Arts, which has created the beautiful icons in our nave, and we also sponsor a Sacred Arts Gallery.
