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 Text: Sunshine
Old preachers never die — we just go on and on and on... I used to think that was funny. But I was young then. When I came to St. Mark’s twenty-four years ago, I kind of looked like a kid. It helps in my line of work to appear venerable and wise. Since I was neither, I grew a beard. At least I could look more mature. Eventually, the beard went white, so I shaved it off. My wife said, “Grow it back.” When I asked why, she said, “You have jowls now.” Ouch. Now I really am an old preacher. I’m a grandfather. I’m not a kid — I’m an apprentice old guy. So what kind of old guy will I be? There is a choice, you know. There are two kinds of old guys, and you’ve met them both.
