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!

Adult Forum on Sunday, July 29 Looks at "How to Get Along with Your Pastor"

Sunday, July 29, following the 10:00 am service

The next adult forum is scheduled for Sunday, July 29, at 11:30 am, following the 10:00 am service. We'll be reviewing and discussing the book "How to Get Along with Your Pastor: Creating Partnership for Doing Ministry" by George B. Thompston, Jr. (Pilgrim Press, 2006). Some copies of this brief (126-page) book are available from St. Mark's, or order your own copy online. Please join us for what promises to be a lively and enlightening discussion.

Tuesday Morning Prayer Services at 8:30 am

Tuesdays, 8:30 am

Tuesday morning prayer provides commuters and others with a simple, intimate service (about 30 minutes long) that is an opportunity to learn about and pray the Daily Office with others. For questions please contact Benjamin Miller (bmiller.9227 at gmail dot com). All are welcome, so please join us!

Update on Stewardship - Giving Thanks for God's Gifts, Supporting Our Ministries


Many thanks also to all who have pledged to support the ministries of St. Mark's in 2014! Currently we have 70 pledges representing a total of $159,402. We invite everyone to help support our parish and we ask that you prayerfully consider your commitment of time, talent, and treasure for the year. The Finance Committee and the Vestry monitor the parish budget throughout the year, seeking to support our ministries to the best of our ability and keeping in mind that our budget should be an expression of our ministerial priorities. Pledge cards and envelopes can be found on the Mission and Ministry table outside the parish hall.

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.
