May 30/31: Pentecost
Join with the St. Mark's community this weekend as we celebrate the feast of Pentecost.
Hymn: Holy Spirit, Ever Living
Communion Reception - Delivery
As we have been unable to join together as a church family, St. Mark's is making this central part of our worship service available in two different ways - in front of the Chapel and for home delivery. Both take place from 8:00 am to 11:00 am each Sunday. If you are desirous for the sacrament, please complete the form on this page by 5:00 pm each Saturday.
Offering - Give
Under normal circumstances, our weekly gathered worship experience includes an opportunity for you to give your tithes and offerings. This reflects and emulates God's generosity to us and supports the Gospel ministry of St. Mark's. During this season you may still participate in the weekly offering through a one-time online gift via our secure giving page.
"The Book of Common Prayer reminds us that if one is unable to actually consume the consecrated bread and wine due to extreme sickness or disability, the desire is enough for God to grant all the benefits of communion (BCP, p. 457). When being present at a celebration of the Eucharist is absolutely impossible, this act of prayer and meditation can provide the means by which you can associate yourself with the Eucharistic Action and open yourself to God’s grace and blessing" - from Forward Movement.

the revised common lectionary
The Vanderbilt Divinity Library has an excellent Revised Common Lectionary site. St. Mark's weekend teaching will utilize the second readings (from 1st Peter) during this Easter Season, which ends on Pentecost Sunday, May 31.
The Book of Common Prayer
Explore and utilize our shared and historic prayer book during this time of social distancing. This can be a spiritual aid for your online worship or personal spiritual formation.
