Journey of Faith Begins

02_studyJourney of Faith returns beginning with four “Come and See” gatherings: September 25October 2, October 23, and November 6, 2016, at 9:45 a.m. in the Library. Journey of Faith is an ancient process of spiritual growth and renewal for adult believers. Bring your questions and find out more about this process during the “Come and See” sessions. Each will cover different topics, so plan to attend all four sessions. Look for the Journey of Faith brochure on Rally Day, September 11th. For more information, contact Pastor Charles, Joanne Sandhu, Daina Upite, Geri Hall, or Chris Woods.

Rally Day is September 11th

Rally Sunday 2015Rally Day is coming Sunday, September 11. On that day, we will have one service outside at 9:30 a.m. This will be followed by coffee, fellowship, games, service opportunities, and burgers and hot dogs.

Also, Rally Day is a day we bless the animals so you are invited to bring your pets, or pictures of your pets, or even your favorite stuffed animal. An “Animal Show” will be part of the festivities as well.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the ELCA has declared this day as “God’s work. Our hands” Sunday where we are encouraged to participate in helping our community. Saint Mark will serve Kairos Community Lunch on that day possibly outdoors. You are welcome to help following all the Rally Day activities.

Saint Mark returns to two services at 8:30am and 11:00am beginning September 18th.
