Dear Brother/Sister in Christ,
During this time of uncertainty and fear, we remain grounded in our knowledge that life is stronger than death, love is stronger than fear, and God will take care of the church. We know that St. Mark is a vital part of the family for many of us. And because of our connection and our assurance of God providing, we will continue to worship together this Sunday, March 15, at 8:30 and 10:45 am.
We will worship with faith and intentionality. Adjustments will be made to the way we worship and fellowship with one another. Please read below for some of our adaptions in worship. And above all else, if you are feeling sick or feel more comfortable staying home, be assured that you are still with this community in worship and prayer.
If you would like to connect with someone from church for a phone call, text, email, facetime, etc., please reach out to Pastor Mollie (firstname.lastname@example.org; 612-396-2338) or Tory (email@example.com; 303-250-8982). And as we continue to walk through this uncertain time may you be reminded today and always that life cannot be stopped and Easter always comes.
One of the implication during this time is our offering. It’s essential to support our staff and keep current with our responsibilities, and that we find ways to be generous even while we’re not together. Please mail your offering to the church or
). Knowing that our income could be impacted, we invite those with extra resources to consider making a special gift.
We will continue to monitor updates from the CDC and MDH, and communicate any updates or changes at St. Mark.
Instead of passing the plate, we ask that you give your offering in the basket as you walk into worship.
Passing of the Peace
Please pass the peace with a sign, smile, bow, or nod.
As we always do, communion servers will sanitize their hands before and after serving. If you are not comfortable receiving the bread, you may choose to commune through one element (individual cups of wine) or have a blessing from the pastor.
