So ... Who are we?
With a nod to a mission statement from our diocese, we articulate our own mission as: "... to be creative, compelling, and compassionate witnesses to Jesus Christ in our piece of the Palouse."
At St. Mark's, we strive to be followers of the Way of Love, the Way of Jesus, "doers of the word" (James 1:22) in the varied traditions of The Episcopal Church. We are a worshiping and serving community of about 100 people—you'll see about half of us on any given Sunday. And you'll see others of us at various activities during the week.
Most of us can remember what our first day at St. Mark's felt like, so we encourage you to take a chance on us—we may be just what you're looking for.

What to learn more about what The Episcopal Church is about? Check out resources. Coming to St. Mark's for one of our weekly liturgies would be a good introduction, because so much of how we experience God, who we are, and who we strive to be is articulated in the liturgies of the day. Go to the calendar for details about next Sunday's worship; or check out the listing for "Slow Church" on Thursday—a quieter introduction.
Anyway, you can find out a lot about us just by exploring the calendar entries.
