St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is a house of prayer for all people.  Known as “The Little White Church On The Hill”, the church was built by Mr. Samuel Chase Hodgman in 1892.  Several decades later, as the oldest church in the city, our humble house of prayer was registered on the National Register of Historic Places in Haines City, Florida.  In 2013, the Diocesan Bishop consecrated a new building to accommodate the growing congregation.


Why Join St. Mark’s Church?

Worship is the sincerest form of praise we can offer, and we give God thanks and praise for His love, goodness, and mercy each week.  Our mission is for each person to have “a place to gather in unity to embrace our diversity, and worship in a covenant community; to learn of God’s love and to share that with all people.”  Our vision “is to be a beacon of light for people everywhere, praying as a united family, and spreading the Word of God.”
