  • guatemala

    We support the work of Porch de Salomon (porchdesalomon.org) a mission church in Panajachel providing incredible support to locals in a variety of life giving and loving ways since 2005. An annual mission trip supports the mission of Porch while providing a transformative experience for those who make the week-long visit. 

  • First sunday food drive

    We bring our donations to church on the first Sunday of each month to be blessed at the altar and then taken to the Cuba Township Food Pantry to support struggling local families. 

  • Lake Barrington Woods (Lbw)

    A team of committed lay ministers takes communion to the residents of LBW every Sunday. 

  • Christmas boxes program

    Families of the church volunteer to support a family in Chicago by providing Christmas gifts that the family would not otherwise be able to give.  While our families are incredibly generous, nothing compares to the letters of heartfelt thanks we receive each January!

  • Jerri hoffman child & family center

    Volunteers from St. Mark's attend the center on a regular basis to provide teaching assistance such as reading stories to the pre-school children of this fantastic mission. 

  • Prayer shawl

    A team knits shawls which are donated either to the families of newly baptized (presented in the baptism service) or to people hospitalized or shut in because of illness.
