Lenten Worship and Activities at St. Mark Presbyterian Church
Ash Wednesday Service
Wednesday, March 6 – 7:00 PM
Please join us on March 6 at 7:00PM as we begin the Lenten Season with our Ash Wednesday service. This meaningful service reminds us of our own mortality and hope for the resurrection in Jesus Christ. Please plan on joining us in the sanctuary as we worship together.
St. Mark is offering a number of opportunities to grow in faith throughout Lent.
Clean Water Challenge
Everyone is encouraged to take part in “The Lenten Challenge” and drink, clean filtered tap water for 40 days. All money saved will go to building clean water wells in Africa with our partners at Marion Medical Mission.
Good News for Ragamuffins
Pastor Dave is leading a 40-day discussion on The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning.
We will gather on Wednesday evenings during Lent, beginning March 13 at St. Mark to discuss the book and its hopeful message for the “bedraggled, beat-up, and burnt-out.”
In addition to the class, Pastor Dave will also host an interactive online video conversation every Wednesday at noon.
This is an excellent chance to explore your faith and feed your spirit as we journey together toward Holy Week. Copies of the book will be available to purchase for $12 in the church office. Please contact Pastor Dave to reserve your copy or if you have any questions.
