Upcoming 100th Events

Dance Through the Decades

Saturday, May 20th @ 5pm

Put on your dancing shoes and join your St. Mark's family for a night of fun as we dance our way through the past 100 years! You'll have the opportunity to learn dances that were popular in years gone by, and enjoy some delicious appetizers as you watch performances by trained dancers. No matter your ability, you'll be sure to have a blast as we twist, shout, shimmy, and shake our way into the next 100 years of life together at St. Mark's. Admission to the event: One non-perishable food item for ABCCM's Food Pantry.

Worship Service - July 16th @ 10am 

Mark your calendars now! So that we are able to all worship together, we will have one worship service on July 16 at 10am. The service will include a brass quintet, choir, and guest preacher as we praise and give thanks to God for 100 years of ministry in Asheville. 

Church Announcements

Sanctuary Floors

Sunday, May 7th after 11am Worship

After the 11am service this Sunday the sanctuary and altar will need to be completely emptied in preparation for floor refinishing beginning Monday, May 8th. We need to remove hymnals and pew bibles, clear the altar of paraments, prepare the pews to be moved (volunteers won't actually be moving pews), as well as a few other items. If you are able to assist in this process for 20 or 30 minutes, please stay after the 11am service or join us around 12:05 pm to volunteer. More hands make for lighter work! 

Prayer List - Please Update

If you have requested that a friend or family member be placed on our weekly prayer list, please take the time to review the most current prayer list and provide Danielle with an update on their prayer needs as we would like to keep our prayers updated on a monthly basis. You can call or email Danielle in the church office if you need to make any changes


Sunday, May 7th @ 9:45

New to St. Mark's? Want to get to know the people here? Interested in getting involved with what God is doing in this place? LandMARKS is a monthly meeting with Pastor Matt and/or Deacon Katie that helps visitors and new members learn about the ministries of St. Mark's, get to know the staff and members, and ask questions about our community.

 Meet us at the bottom of the main staircase at 9:45am to join!

Faith Formation - Sermon on the Mount w/ Ken Lane

Sunday's during Faith Formation Hour

Starting this Sunday, Faith Development is offering a course on Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. "In this inaugural sermon," remarks Ken Lane, the leader of the class, "Jesus presents a revolutionary understanding of God's all-inclusive love, a gift we often lose sight of in our world of meritocracy." The class meets in the Library at 9:45 AM.

Acts of Service

During our 100th Anniversary year, we are striving to accomplish 1923 Acts of Service. You can complete an online form and we will make sure your Act of Service gets displayed, or you can fill out both sides of a card found in the pews and place it in the offering plate sharing how you served in the name of the Lord.
