Notes from your Music Director

Please come join Choir at practice as they prepare for the 150th Anniversary performance. All are welcome to participate! A very special thank you to our choirs for the countless hours of hard work given to prepare for Holy Week and Easter Morning. They walked with us every step of the way and added so much richness to our experience. The sounds of Easter came alive with the help of brass on Easter Morning, and an exuberant organ dismissal by Julius. Thank you all. 

The music continues this Wednesday with rehearsal at 5:45pm for Bells and 6:45pm Chancel Choir. Now is the perfect time to try something new!

AND - we’re having a choir reunion May5th for the 150th anniversary celebration. If you’ve ever sung in the choir at St Mark’s and would like to join us in worship please let me know. If you’re local and want to grab a seat in the choir loft - show up to a rehearsal of two. We’d love to see you there.

The Diaper Pantry is getting low and we need your help! 

Diapers are an essential item for families and one that is not provided or covered by government assistance programs like SNAP or WIC. For the last 4 years, this ministry has grown into a community staple and support network for 300+ families in our community. Please help us continue this vital ministry by donating to our fund using the link below, or bringing in a box of diapers to add to the pantry. Thanks so much for supporting the littlest members of the St. Mark's Community!
