From the Pastor

Happy New Year!
I wanted to share the letter our staff prepared for our Christmas day service.  We modeled it after Paul's letters to the early church recorded in the New Testament.  We can't thank you enough for all you do to make St. Mark's a truly wonderful place.  We so look forward to serving with you in 2017!. ..


The Alzheimer/Dementia Support Group will meet in 503/505 on Thursday, January 26 at 1:30 P.M.
