Welcome to St Mark’s Episcopal Church in Teaneck!

We worship in a light, airy, and air conditioned space, celebrating the Eucharist at 8:00 and 10:00 am on Sunday mornings. We are generous in welcoming new people, active in outreach, and a very diverse group of Christians. Our Music Director and Choir present glorious music, and the Spirit of God is present in the congregation.

Members of our congregation include Africans, African Americans, Caribbeans, Caucasians, Indians, Koreans, Latin Americans, and Native Americans - a fair representation of the Teaneck community.

Our mission is “Celebrating God’s Inclusive Love,” by which we mean that our central work is to love everyone, without exception, who enters our personal or community sphere, to love them in a way that they would recognize as loving, and to extend ourselves to give assistance where assistance is needed; for God is love, and where love is, there is God.

Come to see us! We will welcome you with open arms!

The cost of flowers is $50 and payment must be received in the parish office the Friday before the Sunday you designate.

St. Mark's Book Group, "Reading Between The Lines," Continues on Saturday Mornings

Saturdays, 8:30 - 9:30 am

The Book Group began meeting again on Saturday, September 20th, in Carroll Hall (Room 6), at 8:30 am, and will continue to meet during the program year. We are currently reading Simone de Beauvoir's "The Coming of Age." The book and our conversation explores age, especially old age. The Amazon Website blurb says of the book: "What do the words elderly, old, and aged really mean? How are they used by society, and how in turn do they define the generation that we are taught to respect and love but instead castigate and avoid? Most importantly, how is our treatment of this generation a reflection of our society's values and priorities?" Come to the meeting and join the conversation. There is no requirement to be old to participate in the group. The Book Group's only rule for membership is to show up at the meeting. Reading the book is optional. See Tom Crotty if you want information on getting the book or more on the Book Group. All are welcome, so please join us!

Looking for a Great Ministry? Consider Hosting Sunday Coffee Hour!

Each Sunday Following the 10:00 am Service

Coffee hour is an important part of worship and fellowship, a weekly opportunity to relax and share in building a "beloved community" at St. Mark's. To make this happen, we need coffee hour volunteers. Coffee hour can be as simple as bagels and coffee (preferably), or something more elaborate, according to your preference. Given the economic times, we strongly suggest that simplicity be your guide. What is most important about coffee hour is the time it provides for fellowship and togetherness as we share in the many gifts of the Spirit, so please consider being a coffee hour host. There is a sign-up sheet on the table near the entrance to Carroll Hall. Thanks!

Help Needed for the WIC Play Group on Mondays

First Three Mondays Each Month, 9:00 am - 12:00 noon

The WIC Play Group Team needs additional volunteers. We supervise an informal play group for young children (ages 1 - 6) in the child care room when WIC clients are served at St. Mark's. WIC operates from 9:00 am-2:30 pm the first three Mondays of every month. Play Group volunteers usually provide 2-3 hours of service between 9:00 am and Noon (the busiest time) once a month. WIC parents and caregivers are most appreciative and generally help out a lot. A Read Now volunteer also comes in to read to the children regularly and distribute free books. If you would like to be a part of this ministry or know someone who might, please call Jeanette Adams at 201-836-5078.
