MARCH 9 - NEW MEMBER CLASSES
On Sunday, March 9, classes will be held for those wishing to become new members of St. Mark. These classes cover an overview of St. Mark's past and present and a glimpse into where we are headed in the future. We will also talk about what it means to be a Presbyterian and a member of St. Mark, with an opportunity to ask questions. The classes are held from 9:15 until 10:15 in the Library (Room 104), just down the hall from where we serve coffee. Childcare can be arranged if needed.
If you wish to attend the New Member Classes, please contact Carol Pfeil at 636-394-2233, so that we can be good stewards of our materials.
MARCH 29 - Join us for an Evening of Taiwanese Fellowship -
MARCH 29-30 - Come hear Rev. John McCall speak at our weekend worship services
The Rev. John McCall, PC(USA) Mission Co-worker in Taiwan, will be our guest speaker during Lent at St. Mark's worship services at 5 PM Saturday, March 29 and 8:30 and 10:30 AM Sunday, March 30.
We are inviting our Ballwin neighbor, the Taiwanese Presbyterian Church of Greater St. Louis, to join us for the 5 PM Saturday service followed by dinner. By worshipping & eating together we can experience cross-cultural Christian unity here in our own neighborhood while gaining an understanding John's work around the world.
"The Word became flesh and moved into the neighborhood". John McCall says that he loves this translation of John 1:14 by Eugene Peterson ("The Message"). It inspires his work. Come hear John speak on the last weekend in March. Maybe we, too, can discern how to experience Christ in our own neighborhood.
