DECEMBER at St. Mark’s

 

Wednesday, December 11 @ 7:00 p.m. Service of Hope / Blue Christmas

This service is especially for those who are missing loved ones – whether this will be the first Christmas without them, or the loss was years ago.  It’s also for those who find Christmas difficult, for whatever reason, and who would like to experience some peace in the midst of the busyness of the season and feel God’s loving, healing presence.  We’ll have some readings, sing some songs and carols and light candles.  Please join us!

The St. Mark’s Choir will present the Christmas Cantata “Behold That Star!”
