Together in Faith: Jesus spoke up and said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” Luke 7:40
Simon, Jesus’ host at a dinner, probably had no idea what Jesus was going to say to him. It turned out to be a rebuke, a challenge really. Challenging sayings can come to us too, perhaps in actual words from another, or in something or someone that we see, or in an insight that suddenly strikes us. A Christian should always be ready to hear what God might wish to say to us.
Liturgical Decorations: The flowers on the Altar are sponsored today by Judith Warinner in loving memory of Byron C. Warinner.
Father’s Day: There will be one English service on Father’s Day at 10 am and a Spanish service at 12 pm. Following the English service, ECW will be hosting a casual upgraded Lion’s Den for all the men of our church. Can anyone say bacon? Join us at Knight Hall after the 10 am service.
Property Clean-Up & Maintenance: We need volunteers Saturday morning, June 18th at 6 am to help mow the lawn area and clean up the property. All of us doing our share will relieve the burden on the few.
Upcoming Ministry Meetings:
Mark Your Calendars:
Together in Faith:Now about eight days later, Jesus took with him Peter and John and James and went up on the mountain to pray. Luke 9:28
For many centuries the Christian community has encouraged three special activities during Lent: prayer, fasting, care for the poor. Would one or all of these be ways for use to follow Jesus during this season?
Friday Lenten Soup Supper:This Friday’s soup supper will be at St. Mark’s. The soup supper will begin at 6 pm with Stations of the Cross to follow at 6:30 pm. This is a real opportunity to come together in fellowship and worship with another Episcopal church community.
Easter Flowers:Memorialize a loved one or offer thanks by supporting our Liturgical Arrangements ministry at Easter. Please fill out an Easter Flowers form found in the pew pockets or Narthex and enclose it with your payment in the envelope provided. Please turn in all requests no later than Wednesday, March 16th.
Zumba Fundraiser:On Thursday, February 25th at 7 pm, St. Mark’s will host a fundraising event for the animals of Creative Contributions (a local group whose proceeds go towards an emergency medical fund for shelter dogs). Please see the flyers in the narthex.
