All Saints Day falls on the first Sunday of November, a solemn occasion to remember loved ones we have lost and also to remember and recognize Christ’s victory over death. At St. Mark’s, the names of those who have died within the last year are read during the worship service. It is also our tradition to light candles at this time.
We invite you to submit the names of loved ones and friends who have passed away in the past year. so that we may include them during our service on November 1.
You may submit these names by submitting the form below, sending them by mail to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 501 Duncan Rd., Wilmington DE 19809, by email to the office or by calling Cheryl in our office at (302) 764-7488. Please include your name, the name of the person you wish to remember and that person’s relationship to you.
Join us for real prayer in a virtual context, as we launch a new series of prayer meetings for our church, St. Mark’s Lutheran.
We’ll meet by way of the Zoom video conferencing software on the first Saturday of the month, starting November 7. We’ll pray from 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. If you can’t join us online, we hope you’ll pray with us wherever you may be.
All are welcome. To get your Zoom link, fill out this form to contact organizer Margie Dodson.
GOOD FRIDAY: We would usually gather to reflect together in a Good Friday service, but cannot do so this year because of the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead, seven of your fellow St. Markians were asked to provide a personal reflection on one of the seven “words” (statements) of Jesus from the cross.
While they will not be personally presenting their reflections, they have written them out. Watch for these here on the website, by email or in your mailbox if you do not have email.
“What you believe in your hearts is what you become.” Randy Frazee
Knowing what we believe and why we believe it is essential to a living faith. The Adult Forum class “BELIEVE,” led by Margie Dodson, is based on the book, video and study guide by Randy Frazee. The goal is to allow God to walk into our lives anew. We will study the core beliefs of the Christian faith to become spiritually strengthened, increasingly mature and able to communicate what we believe to others searching for God.
Join us in the Seminary Room Sunday mornings at 10 a.m.
