Pastor’s Letter – August 8, 2017

Rev. Jeri will be preaching and leading worship this Sunday.  Due to the fact she is attending the North American Interfaith Network Conference for a few days, she asked me to write a brief Pastor’s Letter.  (In the photo below fellow NAIN attendees from St. Mark’s, Rebecca Dickerson and Dominique Santos, are welcomed to the conference by Rev. Cheri Metier of the Pioneer Ocean View UCC.)

Remember that during August we also have church at the beach, each Sunday morning at 8:30.  It is an informal time to think, sing, pray, and share communion in the beautiful natural surroundings of Mission Bay.  All are always invited to stop by, just south of the Hilton Hotel on East Mission Bay Drive.  Look for the signs.

Also, if you are dealing with grief or loss in your life–even if the loss was long ago–I commend to you our GriefShare study and support group, which is meeting for the next 13 weeks on Tuesday evenings at 6:30 in the New Room, near the church office.  This is an excellent program, led by St. Mark’s member Lindsay Van Gorder, MSW, who is unusually sensitive and skilled for this work.

Whatever your situation, we hope to see you at St. Mark’s!  All are always invited.
