The church is found on 1957 Pruneridge Ave--a busy four-lane road-- and is connected to a school which the Church runs. The environment is a safe space with people who care deeply for their community and fellow parishioners.
The service I attended was at 10 AM on a rainy Sunday morning. However, despite the weather, all the congregation made me feel welcomed, supported, and involved in the proceedings.
The community at St. Marks is small, but that makes it all the stronger. Coming together before the service to greet each person, all parishioners were intensely involved with one another's lives.
During a portion of the service, members wished one another peace in their lives. This process lasted anywhere between ten and fifteen minutes--or it seemed so--as people walked around the room sharing signs of love towards one another.
In the sermon given by the Reverend, the theme of community was often touched upon, noting that we must come together as one people, accept all people, and involve all people, if we are to spread and share love around a world that is starving for it.
