ADVENT & CHRISTMAS SERVICES

 
St. Nicholas will visit St. Marks & Pageantry Meeting
Sunday, December 9, 2018 at 9:30 am
We know St. Nicholas has a busy schedule this time of year, but St. Nicholas will visit St. Mark’s!  We expect St. Nicholas to arrive to our church on that Sunday at 10:15am.  Immediately following the 8am service, the children will be led into the parish hall to take off their shoes.  The children will leave their shoes in the parish hall because St. Nicholas has been known to leave treats in children’s shoes.  Everybody is then invited into the church so we might eagerly await the arrival of St. Nicholas.  You don’t want to miss the chance to meet St. Nicholas, to hear his story, and to see him in all his pageantry! We will also have a pageantry meeting.

Advent Cookie Exchange
Sunday, December 16, 2018 at 9:30 AM
We will host a St. Mark’s Cookie Exchange. All ages are invited to participate in the event, and you may bring a dozen or so Christmas cookies to exchange with a fellow parishioner.  Please join us for an occasion to enjoy fellowship and anticipate the festivities of Christmas.
 
The Pageantry of Christmas
Sunday, December 16 & 23, 2018 at 9:30 AM
We will have a Christmas pageant as part of our early Christmas Eve service. These two Sunday will be a time for rehearsal, last-minute casting, and gearing up with excitement for the days to come!
 
Lessons & Carols
