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: Night Sky
Sermon Text: Night Sky
I still remember the weirdest phone call I ever got.
We lived out near Chicago and I was in seminary. The phone rang, and I picked it up. A voice said, “Is this Mark Giroux?” I said yes. The voice said, “This is Mark Giroux.”
That felt weird! Turns out the other Mark Giroux was a grad student in astronomy at Northwestern University. I was getting some of his mail by mistake.
Well, science was never my best subject...music was. I never would have ended up as an astronomer. That other Mark Giroux did...I’ve seen him on the internet. However, like that other Mark Giroux, I am fascinated by the night sky.
