St. Mark's Rector, Father Gary Jackson
On Wednesday nights during Lent we will have a soup supper at 5:30 PM and then, at 6 PM, study "Anglicanism Through the Ages". I invite you to bring your friends and join me on this Lenten journey through time.
Every blessing to you.

THE OPEN TABLE, established in 2007, is a faith-based model that trains volunteers to partner their vocational and life experiences with people in poverty to develop and implement plans that create sustainability and wholeness. On January 30, 2017, St. Mark’s Church held its pilot Open Table meeting. After being trained in the model, the Table will meet with its first approved candidate and begin the process of developing and implementing a customized LifePlan that leads to empowerment. If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Dori Bisbey.
