GARTON HALL CARPETING IS COMPLETE!
 Garton Hall has been reopened for our use with brand new carpet!  This marks the completion of the first phase of the carpet replacement.  In mid-October, the carpet in the halls and selected rooms will be replaced, and then, when the new sanctuary lighting has been installed, the carpeting in the sanctuary will be laid.  Project St. Mark's is moving ahead!

CHILDREN AND YOUTH:
5TH SUNDAY IS SANCTUARY SUNDAY.

THIS SUNDAY, AUGUST 31 (AND ALSO 11/30, 3/29 & 5/31)

 Children and youth are invited to stay for the entire worship service in the sanctuary. Traditional Sunday school classes, for preschool through 12th grade, will not meet. A childcare option will be available in room 8 for children in preschool through 6th grade. Toddler and Infant Care will continue in room 25 as regularly scheduled.

 

The sanctuary worship service is full of feelings that children and youth will not experience at any other time in the week. Feelings of welcome, of community, of occasion or importance, of reverence and awe are lessons that cannot be taught in a Sunday school classroom. While children and youth are always welcome in sanctuary worship, St. Mark's would like to intentionally offer these gifts to our young people at St. Mark's on 5th Sundays. Children's bulletins and books can be found in the rear of the church.
