St. Mark’s Feast Day
Join us Sunday, April 26 for the St. Mark’s Feast Day and it will be a day to celebrate all things of St. Mark’s. St. Mark’s will Feast on a Fish Fry, listen to live bluegrass music, and connect you and others to the life and ministries of our church.
Blessed to Be a Blessing
Stewardship can best be described as "life after baptism." In baptism, we receive new life, and we are called to live our Christian life in faithful response to God's blessings continually and forever bestowed upon us.
Over the next three weeks, your stewardship commission invites you to consider your offering of time and talent with the campaign Blessed to Be a Blessing. Beginning this Sunday, we will hear members of the parish share how they have been blessed in their blessing others. The campaign will culminate with our annual celebration of the St. Mark's Feast Day on Sunday, April 26 when we will have one service and celebrate all things St. Mark's.
Every one of us will have an opportunity to commit or recommit our time and talent to the mission and ministry of St. Mark's. We will make those commitments in our one service of worship at 11:15am, and following the service, we will celebrate with a fish fry accompanied by some of the finest bluegrass music this side of the Brazos.
Save the date, April 26, and begin to prayerfully consider your blessings and offering yourself to be a blessing to others. Click here for a list of ministries.
