An Invitation for Men
Saint Mark’s is inviting area Churches to send men to sessions for connecting to Christ and each other, discussing the challenges of being men of faith, and serving the Church by making communion wine together. Sessions will be Sunday afternoons between 4:30 and 7:00, beginning in September. There is no charge. Please let me know if you are interested in participating!
Program Year Kick-Off, Sunday, 9/10 at both services. We’ll commission our Sunday School teachers and worship leaders.
The Youth Choir will have its first rehearsal at 9:30, and regular Sunday School will resume at 10:00.
Save Church Training, Saturday, 9/16
The next Safe Church Training in our area will be at All Saints, South Hadley on Saturday morning, 9/16/17. Ideally everyone who works with our children and/or makes home visits (e.g. delivering communion) should attend a Safe Church
Adult education: Sunday, 9/17, 11:45. The Reformation at 500: What It Meant and What It Means.
On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of a Church, inaugurating the Protestant Reformation and changing the face of Christianity forever. This fall, we will acknowledge the 500th anniversary of that momentous event with a session (or short series, depending on interest) on the Reformation: What It Meant and What It Means. On Sunday, September 17, we’ll gather after the 10:00 service (so about 11:45) for a session called "Shattering Christendom." In it, we will discuss the break-up of Christendom and the uneasy progress towards mutual toleration. We will end with conversation about how Christians think about other types of Christians, and how Christians think about other religions.
New York City Bus Trip: October 30, 6:45am - 10:00pm, Rabbi Mark Shapiro, the Rabbi in residence at our Cathedral, is leading a one-day trip to NYC called Exploring our Faith. Participants will leave at 6:45 am from the Saint Andrew’s parking lot, and return about 10 pm. In between, they will visit Jewish, Muslim, and Christian sites. For more information, please contact Liz Stevens at 413-686-3177 or email@example.com. To register, mail her a check for $99 made payable to Christ Church Cathedral at the Cathedral, 35 Chestnut Street, Spring-field, MA 01103. The trip is likely to fill, so register soon if you are interested.
Multi-Faith Mission to Israel, 1/28-2/8/18: for details, contact Rich Simpson at firstname.lastname@example.org
St. David's is a place where new friendships are formed and old friendships blossom. Saint David’s is called to be: a caring community of dynamic worship and relevant teaching designed to provide a foundation for our daily lives and to equip believers to serve God in the world.
First Time at Saint David’s?
Our regular services are at 8:00 and 10:00 on Sunday mornings.
At both services, we sing songs, read passages from the Bible, hear a sermon about how the Bible applies to our lives, and celebrate Holy Communion. The service lasts about an hour.
You can follow the service on screens at the front of the Church or else in the red Book of Common Prayer in the pews.
Children are welcome at all services. There is also a nursery available during all services, as well as special children’s programming during the 10:00 service.
After the 10:00 service, please join us for pastries, coffee, and/or juice. We would love to get to know you better!
We have ample parking, and the Church is fully handicapped-accessible.
Praise and worship of our Lord does not end when the service is over. We are all encouraged to go in peace to love and serve the Lord where ever life takes us. Don't miss out on what you deserve: peace, love, and happiness. Come to St. David's where you will find that and more. ALL are welcome, please join us!
