Lent at St. Mark’s

Sunday Worship: Throughout the Season of Lent, we will gather for worship at 8 a.m. and at 10:30 a.m. Sunday school meets at 9:30 a.m. between the services. Everyone is welcome.

Preparation for Baptism: If you have been considering baptism for you and/or your child, Lent is a time of preparation. Please talk to Pastor Debra (rector@stmarksevanston.org) or to Deacon Scott (community@stmarksevanston.org) to learn more about this process of preparation for baptism at The Great Vigil of Easter, Saturday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m.

Our Story, Our Calling: Lenten small groups are forming now (registration deadline is Feb. 18). Our Story, Our Calling groups will meet during the five weeks in Lent and practice a discipline of aural reflection on the gospel text appointed for the coming Sunday as we wonder together about what it means “to reaffirm our renunciation of evil and to renew our commitment to Jesus Screen Shot 2018-01-28 at 6.26.34 PMChrist” in the 21st century. A women’s only group (Sunday afternoons) is being offered and a group for men and women is forming and will meet at a time that is intended to be mutually convenient for all.  There is a sign up sheet available in the Parlor OR you can email Pastor Debra (rector@stmarksevanston.org) to be added to a group.  Groups will begin meeting the week of February 18.

Intentional Journey:  The season of Lent is a gift intended especially for those who are turning to the way of Christ in some new way.  If you would like to know how to make an intentional journey this Lenten season, please talk to Pastor Debra (rector@stmarksevanston.org) or to Deacon Scott (community@stmarksevanston.org) who will help you in plotting your own course through Lent.

  • It may be that your Christian faith has only been a family tradition – until now. If this is the moment for you or your household to become intentional about following the way of Christ, Lent is for you.
  • It may be that your faith has been a private affair – until now. If you are ready to make common cause with other disciples of Jesus, Lent is for you.
  • It may be that Christ has always seemed a distant figure to you – until now. If this is the moment for you to deepen your relationship with Christ, Lent is for you.

And remember that we will all walk the path with you.
