John’s Sermon 

Holy Eucharist, Rite II

Choir at Advent

This week we pray for the Food Addicts Anonymous Group, which began meeting on at St. Mark’s in June, 2018. They now meet here every Thursday evening at 6:30 PM. Food Addicts Anonymous is an organization that believes that Food Addiction is a biochemical disorder that occurs at a cellular level and therefore cannot be cured by willpower or by therapy alone. We feel that food addiction is not a moral or character issue. This Twelve Step program believes that food addiction can be managed by abstaining from (eliminating) addictive foods, following a program of sound nutrition (a food plan), and working the Twelve Steps of the program.

Our Mission Beyond Our Doors

From issues facing our planet to challenges in our community, St. Mark’s looks beyond ourselves to find ways to help.

The Peace Pole

Ways to help

* The Peace Pole – say a prayer for world peace

* Food Bank – share with our neighbors

* Homeless Shelter – support those in need

* Sandwich Program – provide food for others

Current outreach efforts by our parish

Music


Music is an important part of life at St. Mark’s, both as part of our worship and also as a gift to the wider Waterville community.

* In worship, singing hymns and prayers

* Enjoying our choir

* Appreciating a range of organ music

* Involving our children

* Offering concerts

Learn more about Music at St. Mark’s.

Our Lively Program for Children

At St. Mark’s, we welcome children as an important part of our life together. Sunday activities for children and their families are focused on learning by doing. For example:

* Participating in worship in the Family Eucharist

* Outreach projects: making chicken pies for the Homeless Shelter or packing diapers for needy families

Learn more about children and family programs

Our Directors of Children and Youth programs are Jonathan Knock and Melinda Corey.

Pastoral Care

How do we as Christians embody our faith? The entire “Body of Christ” is called, as baptized Christians, to love and care for one another and for those in need. Learn more about why Pastoral Care is vital to our mission.

Our fall series on the “Opiate Crisis and the Faith Community” on Thursday evenings allowed us to learn more from many speakers and discuss ways to help.
