Hello St. Marks Community and Friends,
We are now moving into a new time. We are worshipping, both in person and through the "live stream" on the computer. We are supporting our congregation, and we are trying to figure out how to be the church for our community. We are navigating uncharted waters. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!
You are serving God and his Son through your commitments to your church community. Well done.
Please note for your calendar that we will worship in the sanctuary and live on the internet on August 2 at 9:15 AM. We then will move outside for the rest of August! August 9 and 23 at 9:15 AM we will worship at Bubeck Park on Washington Street in Schuylkill Haven. August 16 and 30 at 9:15 AM we will worship at the Cressona Picnic Grove on Spruce Street.
If you aren't exactly sure where either location is, please call Jean Maffeo at 570-385-0242. Bring your favorite lawn chair and your mask, set up six feet from your nearest congregational neighbor, and praise God! Because we are outside, we can SING! Please note that we will not be able to "live stream" from outside, but we will record the service and post it online as soon as possible Sunday afternoon.
September 6 at 9:15 AM we will return to the sanctuary if conditions permit. September 13 we will return to the fall schedule and worship will be in the sanctuary at 10:30 AM if conditions permit.
If you are not feeling well, please stay home. If you may have been exposed to the Covid-19 virus, please stay home. Thanks!
We pray for strength, courage, unity, creativity, and hope during this time. As always, if you need to reach me, either email at Kevin24@ptd.net or call me at 610-334-5130.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
