Christmas

 

Come and find the ways that Christ has come into our lives this Christmas at St. Mark’s. This year we’ll connect to some of the stories of Scripture along with our memories and traditions in order to prepare the way for the deep mystery and joy of Jesus’ arrival. Join us at any of our five different, unique services to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

Childcare on Christmas Eve

While our regular Sunday and Wednesday services include complimentary childcare, on Christmas Eve we encourage families to worship together. We especially encourage families to attend the 4:00 p.m. service that is designed for children and families. There is a blessing of the children during  worship and words and music from The Little Drummer Boy. In addition, we have an infant hospitality room for parents and young worshippers who may be in need of feeding, changing or comforting. Feel free to use that room (slip through the door near the organ)  any time during any of the services and listen to the sermon in a private setting.
