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!

 

Sunday, December 22 @ 11:00 a.m.

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

 

 

 

 

Sunday School Christmas Concert

Sunday, December 22 @ 2:30 p.m. the children of our Sunday School will present songs, recitations, and skits.  What could be more fun?

 

 

 

 

Christmas Eve Service

Tuesday, December 24 @ 7:00 p.m.

Join us for our Christmas Eve service as we celebrate Christ’s birth!  Beginning with a carol sing, featuring special music and message, and ending with hot quiche and other treats, this service has become an annual tradition for all ages.

Join us for our Vacation Bible School “Big Apple Adventure” as we learn where faith and life connect!

The Adventure begins Monday, July 22 and runs until Friday, July 26 from 9:00 am. til Noon each day.

The program is for “tourists” ages 5 to 12 and there is also a Teen class.

The program includes a daily Bible lesson, games, music, crafts, and snacks (snacks are provided – food allergies must be noted on the registration form.)

Registration is $5  * (see below)

If you wish to register your child(ren), please call Rev. Paula at 902-892-5255 or email her at stmarkspres@eastlink.ca

**Because registration is limited to 60 children and we are full every year, we now require the registration fee be paid prior to July 1 to ensure your child’s space is reserved.  This is to avoid other families being told there are no spaces available only to have “no shows” the week of VBS.
