Conversation Cafes...what now?

In November 2017, nearly 60 St. Mark's members took part in Conversation Cafes, in which we answered questions:

What keeps you coming back to St. Mark's?
Where do you see God at work at St. Mark's?
What are your aspirations for St. Mark's?

During Lent of 2018, we will continue the conversations by taking up some of the topics around which there was the most energy during the earlier conversations. We will pray, read Scripture, and talk about who God is calling us to be. Join us on the following dates, as we continue to discuss the present and future of St. Mark's!

Sunday, March 11 (12 to 1:30 pm)
Worship (including liturgy, preaching, and music)

Tuesday, March 13 (7 to 8:30 pm)
Youth and children's ministry
(All ages welcome; parents and grandparents are  encouraged to bring their children)

Sunday, March 18 (12 to 1:30 pm)
Outreach and community involvement

Tuesday, March 20 (7 to 8:30 pm)
People, community, and church growth

Thursday, March 22 (7 to 8:30 pm)
