- FORMATION
Vestry Liaison: Susan LaDue

As Christians, we are a people being formed more and more into the likeness of Christ. Formation is not a one-time event, but rather a process that engages us over the course of our lives; more than an academic exercise that occupies just our heads, formation is a discipline that shapes us as we seek to love God with all our heart and soul and mind.

At St. Mark’s, we are formed in our weekly gatherings by readings and preaching based on Scripture, as well as a weekly forum series that deepens our faith. We gather for Bible studies and have enjoyed special speakers and occasional seasonal classes.
