Parish Work Morning - April 1

On Saturday April 1, we will have a parish work morning to get our building ready for Easter.

We have a lot of little projects that need to be done around the church to spruce it up and get ready for Easter (and to welcome visitors to Saint Mark’s).

We will gather at 9 am and divide up the projects. We will end at noon or when we finish the list of projects, whichever comes first.

There will be indoor work for sure. Outdoor work if the weather permits. 

Pastor Vicki will bring donuts from the Goodie Shoppe as a reward for the workers.

The UA Library is having a Sustainability Fair that day. Bring your e-waste and paper to be shredded and plan on stopping by on your way home.

Supper Group - April 1

April Supper Group will meet on Saturday, April 1st at 5 pm.  All adults, as well as children, are welcome. We will meet in the Church Parish Hall.


This is a Potluck Dinner with each household bringing a dish, usually appetizers, salads, soup, casseroles, and desserts (mocktails, wine or cocktails are optional). Our theme for April will be Family Heritage, bring a family favorite old or new. Please contact Gloria Wylie as to whether or not you plan to attend and what category your dish falls into. Thank you.

FYI due to the Palm Sunday setup and the Culture & Artisans Fair on Sat. 5/6 we are moving our May Supper Group up one week to April 29th.  

Saint Mark's Grief Support

Sharing the experience of grief is a powerful tool for coping with and working through the pain of loss. Saint Mark’s Grief Support Group members spend time talking together about their unique experiences in a safe and confidential setting. Come and join us on March 25th at 9:30 am in the Parish Office. No matter where you are in your grief journey, you’ll be in good company.

Call Brenda Hammersley at 614-330-1436 for more information.


The nursery is staffed from 10:15 a.m. - Noon on Sunday mornings for children age 3 and under. Parents are invited to either drop off their children or to stay with them if they prefer.

If you have questions about the nursery, please contact either Julie Moll or Pastor Vicki -

Sunday Worship Schedule

Should I wear a mask at church?

As long as Franklin County remains at low or medium community level of COVID spread, according to the CDC, masks will be optional.
