St. Mark’s is a place to grow.

It’s a place to grow closer in our connection to God. It’s a place to grow closer to the needs of the world, which God places on our hearts. It’s a place to grow among and with other people, from diverse backgrounds and perspectives.

Outreach

Jesus said to feed the hungry. So, we do. A lot. We gather food. We grow our own. We make lots of meatloaves. And other stuff too.

Fellowship

Jesus didn't talk much about church services. But, he talked an awful lot about parties, banquets, and meals. So, we feel like that's a solid basis for us to have some serious fun with each other.

Outreach

Reaching out to people in need has always been a priority for St. Mark’s. Over twenty years ago Curbing Hunger was founded here, to help the local food banks keep up with demand in the summer months. Curbing Hunger is now it’s own 501(c)3. 

When Superstorm Sandy hit the Jersey Shore, we ventured down to Keansburg to offer a hot lunch in their soup kitchen. We’ve gone back twice a month ever since, and we’ve fed well over 10,000 meals there.

Every week people bring in food, place it in a barrel in our church, and it’s taken down to the Food Bank Network of Somerset County. This past Christmas we donated over fifty turkeys, and we do the same with hams at Easter, and ribs at the Fourth of July.

Every summer our teens and adults head to Appalachia to help make homes warmer, safer, and drier with the Appalachia Service Project.

And, we’re on our third year of tending to a large garden which produces over a ton of vegetables every year for the hungry in our neighboring communities.

Jesus asks his followers to join him in caring for those in need—and we seek to do just that.
