The Importance of Education
Educating our children is one of the most crucial responsibilities we have as a community. At St Mark’s United Methodist Church, we understand the significance of providing quality education to the younger generations. That is why we have launched the "For Our Schools" initiative to support the Three Rivers Local School District.
