Welcome to Epiphany at St. Mark’s!
For the next several Sundays, St. Mark’s is again requiring masks to be worn by adults and children during church services. We will continue to share Eucharist at the altar rail, however, as we seek to find best practices during this recent Omicron spike. I am so grateful to members of the COVID Task Force that has given the church and school solid and consistent guidance during this nearly two-year pandemic. We pray the mask requirement will only last a few weeks. In the meantime, please be kind and respectful of one another. The 10 a.m. Eucharist, of course, remains on livestream.
As previously announced, St. Mark’s is excited to begin Sunday School again this week! We are starting with a one-room school house for children in PK4 through third grade. It is being held at 10 a.m. in Community Room A at the east entrance to the church building. Our plan is to expand into two classes when demand builds. We are grateful to our volunteer teachers: Denise Davis, Katie Mullins, Lena Turpen, Kayla Morton and Amy Wilson. And, our nursery remains open from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. for children through PK3, thanks to our nursery attendant Heather Stacy.
Blessings to you and yours.
See you Sunday!
The Rev. James B. Cook Rector
