We believe God's love and welcome extends to everyone. No exceptions! At St. Mark's, we are committed to diversity and inclusion. Each Sunday, our priest says these words to invite everyone to communion at our altar:
This is the Lord's table. If you have great faith, or you have little faith, you are welcome. If you have been here often, or if you have never been here before, you are welcome. If you have tried to follow, or if you have failed, you are welcome. It's the Lord who invites you. You can meet him here.
Our Sunday worship services are at 8am and 10am We offer a nursery school for children up to 3 years old and Sunday School for children up to 6th grade.
Sermon: A Service for January 20, 2019
Sermon Text: Royalties for HDM
I think good stories are like fine wine. They get better with age.
One of my all-time favorite stories is true — it happened to me...back in 1978. I’ve told it so often, I should be paying royalties to the guy. But I still get a charge out of it.
I was in a seminary class called “Philosophical Theology.” Our professor was from Scotland. His name was H. Dermott MacDonald. And I’ll never forget the day he was talking about what he called “religious enthusiasm.”
He was against it. He glared at us, and said, “Jaysus didn’t die ta make ye hilarious... He died ta save ye from yer SINS!”
