St. Mark Bible Study

   Joy to the World! 

When the Christmas season approaches, is joy your first reaction? We will gather to discuss and share 4 meditations, designed to help us connect with that same sense of joy that caused all creation to give joyful praise. We'll meet at 10:00 am on Tuesday, December 12th in the large conference room of the church office. All are welcome

Advent Worship Service at St. Mark

Wednesday, December 13, 7:00 p.m. 

Prayer Around the Cross is a meaningful devotional prayer service that was originally developed at Holden Village, a Lutheran retreat center in Washington State. It is a contemplative service filled with music, scripture and silence. As we wait in hope for the coming of our Savior we will gather around the cross, light candles, and center ourselves in prayer. We will lift before God nations around the world, creation, our Pinellas County community, and all who are in need of prayer.

Blue Christmas Evening Prayer Service at Grace Lutheran, Clearwater

Wednesday, December 20, 7:00 p.m. While Advent is a season of hope and Christmas is a season of joy, not everyone feels hopeful or like celebrating. Grief, illness, aging, depression, loneliness, unemployment, and loss are magnified. Even those who are not struggling with losses may feel the stress of preparations and expectations around Christmas time. This Blue Christmas service may provide a time and place of solace during the often-frenetic days surrounding the celebration of Christmas. We come together seeking healing and room to share grief, sadness, loneliness, or confusion when these emotions often feel out of place during the holidays. This service is hosted by Grace Lutheran in Clearwater - 1812 N Highland Ave, Clearwater, FL 33755.     

Service of Lessons and Carols Sunday, December 31, 9:30 a.m.

Please join us on Sunday, December 31 at 9:30 a.m. for another special worship service featuring scripture and music. This is a great way to ring in the New Year.
