St. Mark News
Most of us are likely sitting and wrestling with a state of disbelief, sadness, anger, and fear. We wonder what is happening in our communities and where God is in the midst of it all. God is mourning with us. God is mourning in the deaths, violence, and injustices happening each and every day, but especially this past week. As resurrection people we know that death does not have the final word; that goodness, grace, and love will persevere. In the midst of grief and uncertainty may we see the helpers who are cleaning the streets and peacefully fighting for justice. During this time if you are in need of someone to talk to or pray with, please reach out. You may call or text Pastor Mollie: 612-396-2338 or Tory: 303-250-8982.

With Love and Peace,
Pastor Mollie
