Pentecost on May 20th; Choir Du Jour to Sing

We will be starting our Summer Worship Schedule with one service at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 20th, Pentecost Sunday. Worship that day will be followed by our annual Chili Cook-Off. Summer Schedule will continue through Sunday, September 9th (Rally Day).

Also on Pentecost, the Saint Mark Choir du Jour will gather for the 9:30 a.m. Pentecost service. We will sing “If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments” by Thomas Tallis, a 4 part choral piece that is quite familiar to many. The text is based on John 14:15-17, when Jesus told his disciples “If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever.”

We will rehearse in the sanctuary at 8:30 a.m. – music will be provided. Even if you haven’t sung this piece before, please join us!

Annual Advent Organ Concert on Saturday Dec. 16th

Saint Mark will feature its longtime organist, Tim Bibelheimer, in his traditional Advent concert on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2017.

Appearing with him will be local musicians Orion Davidson, flute; Marjory Lange, violin/viola; Judith Linder and Olga Valdes, sopranos; Glory Lyatuu, piano/organ; and Kay Mitchell, oboe.

The performance also will feature selections on Saint Mark’s newly acquired nine-foot concert grand piano.

The concert will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the church. Admission is free, but offerings are welcome.

The holiday program will range from classical works, such as J.S. “Bach’s Sleepers Wake” and Louis Vierne’s “Carillon de Westminster,” to contemporary, such as “Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus” and “Let There Be Peace on Earth.” Those attending will be invited to sing along with favorite carols such as “Silent Night” and “Rejoice, Rejoice, Believers.”

Bibelheimer, who began playing the organ in church at age 14, has served as organist at Saint Mark for 25 years.
