New Sunday Sermon Series: Imagine a Church like Jesus Envisioned
This is an important time for St. Mark's! This four-part series beginning Sunday, February 18, is intended to challenge our thinking and imagination as we prayerfully consider the possibilities and challenges that are before us. We will dream and ask, how is God leading us and how is He directing us? Based on God's Word we will consider the Church that Jesus envisioned and, by His grace, humbly pursue the Lord's vision for us!
Wednesday Lenten Worship Series
'Tis the season for the Olympics! These athletes have certainly dedicated themselves to training - and God calls us into training - as His disciples! WE, together, are training to . . . worship Him, reach others with the Good News of His love, serve Him and those around us, grow in our relationship with Him and believe in Jesus as our Lord and Savior! Get ready and join us in the adventure of a lifetime as we are "Training To . . ." follow Him. Wednesday Lenten worship services (lunchtime and evening) will be based on Hebrews 12:1-2!
