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.)
