On Saturday, May 19, St. Mark celebrated 50 years of worshipping in the sanctuary.  A celebratory worship service was held with Rev. Henry Blickhahn giving the sermon.  Reverand Blickhahn served as DCE at St. Mark from 1989 - 1983. 

The service was filled with the sound of celebratory singing.  All church musical groups took part:  the choir, the praise band, the bell choir, and the chime choir all raised voices and instruments in God's praise.  The congregation joined in enthusiastically, singing in both English and Tigrinya.

After the service we had a delicious dinner in the Fellowship Hall, with the meats catered from Café Violette, the potatoes and green beans from Folks, and salads, additional meat dishes, and desserts provided by the members of St. Mark. 

We celebrated the presence of two of our charter members, Marlene Richardson, and Artie Summerlin, as well as a member of one the first confirmation classes, Anne Kunz.

Here is a link to the powerpoint presentation of our photos from 1965 to now:

2018 Children’s Christmas Program           

Our annual children’s Christmas program will be held on Christmas Eve, December 24, at 6:30 p.m.  Sunday School children will present “Incredible Christmas” from Children’s Ministry.  In this program a mysterious figure known as the Looker-Outer is sent to call a girl named Kim to become a super hero. Although Kim is gifted with amazing powers, she finds it hard to believe an ordinary girl like herself can do anything great.  The Looker-Outer points Kim to the Christmas story and the story of Jesus over and over, showing her that she can do incredible things and teaching her about the incredible gift God gave us in Jesus.

            All Sunday School children are invited to participate and will sing “Away In a Manger”, “Silent Night”, and “Go Tell It On the Mountain”.  The congregation will also be invited to sing several familiar hymns and participate in the candle lighting.  We hope to see everyone there!

Education News

By Ruth Wietbrock, Education Director

We continue to collect donations for “Operation Smile” – a medical charity that provides free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions - for Sunday School Missions through December 2018.  With just $240 we can provide surgery for one child.  We have collected over $1000 so far and are excited to help provide new smiles for these children and young adults.  Thank you to all who have donated thus far!

The annual children’s Christmas Program will be held on Christmas Eve at 6:30 p.m.  We will present “Incredible Christmas” from Children’s Ministry.  We will see how a mysterious figure known as the Looker-Outer is sent to call a girl named Kim to become a super hero.  Although Kim is gifted with amazing powers, she finds it hard to believe an ordinary girl like herself can do anything great.  The Looker-Outer points Kim to the Christmas story and the story of Jesus over and over, showing her that she can do incredible things and teaching her about the incredible gift God gave us in Jesus.
