"Greatly ought we to rejoice that God dwells in our soul; and more greatly ought we to rejoice that our soul dwells in God. Our souls is created to be God's dwelling place, and the dwelling of our soul is God..." - Julian of Norwich (1342-1416).
Join Centering Prayer in the Tegarden Room. All are welcome.
The Outreach Committee would like to thank everyone who donated to the Back Pack Blessings food drive. Our donations fed many homes this past weekend. Through cash donations and the Christmas ornament sale we were able to gift the program with money to purchase fresh fruit for these families.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
Many verses from Philippians and Galatians are familiar to us as famous quotes from the Apostle Paul to his friends in these far flung places. We will use Stanley P. Sunders’ commentary as our guide through the imagery and language of this rich text. Our study will follow Holy Eucharist at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be provided by participants on a rotating basis. (See Jo Leopard for details.) Our study will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end promptly at 7:30 p.m.
Sundays, at Noon
This new offering is for anyone seeking God, desiring to grow in the Christian faith, and wishing to participate more deeply in this beautiful faith tradition. Everyone is invited, whether you are brand new to St. Mark’s or you are a long-time member. All are welcome. We will offer a light lunch during the course, provided by participants on a rotating basis. (If you would like to help with lunch one week please contact the Church office or Jo Leopard.)
