Who We Are

A family that prays together, stays together! St. Mark’s makes an effort to focus on the individuals in your family, but we know that the family unit is just as important. St. Mark's has several ministries focused on marriage-enhancement and parenting.

Bring your family to join our Church family.

By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established (Proverbs 24:3).

Our Mission

 The family is the basic unit of society as well as the church, the body of which Christ is the head. The mother church is extending this service in order to help each family get closer to the Lord and to each other with thegoal of seeing its members unified in God. This will be reflected in the unity and strength of Christ’s body, the Church.

...For Parenting

 

For 25 years, Positive Discipline has been the gold standard reference for grown-ups working with children. Now Jane Nelsen, distinguished psychologist, educator, and mother of seven, has written a revised and expanded edition. The key to positive discipline is not punishment, she tells us, but mutual respect. Nelsen coaches parents and teachers to be both firm and kind, so that any child–from a three-year-old toddler to a rebellious teenager–can learn creative cooperation and self-discipline with no loss of dignity.

 With so much confusion about the role of men in our society, it's no wonder so many parents and teachers are at a loss about how to bring up boys. Our culture has vilified masculinity and, as a result, boys are suffering. Parents, teachers, and others involved in shaping the character of boys have many questions. In Bringing Up Boys, Dr. James Dobson, America's most trusted authority on family issues, tackles these questions and offers advice and encouragement based on a firm foundation of biblical principles. Bringing Up Boys—a must-read book for parents, teachers, social workers, youth leaders, counselors—anyone involved in the challenge of turning boys into good men.
