Christmas at St. Mark is a time of special worship opportunities.
It is our prayer that you will find yourself participating in one or more of these opportunities.

Advent begins at St. Mark on Saturday evening, December 2 at the 5:00 PM worship service
Each weekend in Advent, at each of the three weekend worship services, we will hear different St. Mark voices reading the wreath candle lighting liturgy inviting us toward the birth of our Savior.
