Thanksgiving Day Service & Meal
Join us on Thursday November 28th at 9am for our traditional Thanksgiving Day Service! Immediately afterward St. Mark's is co-sponsoring (along with the Church of the Redeemer, Biloxi) a Thanksgiving Meal for our homeless neighbors at Loaves and Fishes. Loaves and Fishes is located at 610 Water St. Biloxi, MS. All are welcome to come serve.
St. Mark's is providing Sweet Potato Casserole, Green Bean Casserole, and Desserts. If you would like to make a casserole or a dessert, they can be dropped off at St. Mark's during normal business hours or on Sunday. Please bring them in a disposable aluminum pan. We will freeze them then they will be delivered for Thursday.

This Advent Season you are invited to leave the rushed busyness of the world and come into the holy quiet of three beautiful Advent services. These Advent Eucharist offerings will draw us into the awe and mystery of the season as we prepare ourselves to hear the message of Christ’s light coming into the world. Let the loveliness of these candlelit services, filled with sacred Advent Hymns, invite you on a journey to ponder the perfect eternal gift of our Lord, Jesus Christ. *Nursery available
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.)
