Christmas Celebration (12/24/2017), 5pm, at St. Mark's
Decorating of the worship space will be done in stages during Advent up until after the worship service on the Sunday before Christmas, December 17th. Christmas Eve service this year is on Sunday, December 24th at 5:00PM, an intimate festive communion service with several Christmas hymns (including the lighting of individual candles during "Silent Night") for all who attend! And, there is always plenty of wonderful refreshments and fellowship afterwards. Our 12 days of Christmas continues up until Epiphany and the Baptism of Jesus on Sunday, January 7th.
Kids Halloween Treats (10/31/2017) at St. Mark’s
Hundreds of area kids get lots of treats, and there are dog treats, and our restrooms are available for all in this evening of fun in our neighborhood. From about 5-7:30pm, many kids with their parents come by, and the costumes are awesome! Kevin Varness does his usual decorating for this event, too!
