No Bible Study this week on Tuesday night at Peet’s in Novato. No Morning Prayer on Thursday at the Church. Sunday we celebrate the 2nd Sunday after Christmas, and the Octave Day of the Feast of St Stephen at 10:00 am at the Church. Please come and join us as we near the Epiphany, which is a week from Thursday, January 6th. We will also have Mass at 10:00 am on January 6th, the Feast of the Epiphany.
We have begun our pledge drive for 2011. Please submit your Pledge Card, so we can anticipate and plan our budget for the year. Remember the Lord loves a chearful giver!
Pledge cards are available at the church for the upcoming year. We plan some exciting things for the New Year. Your pledges help us in our planning. Please consider an increase in your pledge as a thanksgiving for all that the Lord is doing in your lives and in His church. We are confident that He will continue to bless us in the New Year, as we continue to pray for His guidance. We are stepping up our commitment by signing a two year lease with our landlord. We believe this step in faith will let the community know that we are here to stay, with God’s help. We plan to update our sanctuary with fresh paint, also the exterior trim of our church. Please be part of our year with your pledge.
Please also remember St Mark’s in your charitable giving as the calendar year closes. The Church Year has already begun with the First Sunday in Advent. There is a great opportunity to give a memorial to the church, as part of your will or trust.
