THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK
We are in year B of the Common Lectionary which means most of our gospel passages will come from Gospel of Mark. Dr. Phil Rutledge (one of my professors at the Academy for Biblical Storytelling) has just released a video where he does a dramatic telling of the entire gospel with an accompanying study guide. We will tackle three chapters a week on Sunday evenings. Dr. Rutledge is a New Testament Scholar, fluent in Greek and has recently retired from teaching at a Lutheran college in Texas.
The program will start with a dinner of soup, bread, and salad. Our nursery will be open but please contact the rector if you would like to use the nursery. A sign up sheet will be in the parish hall. Please sign up to attend, to help provide dinner and let us know . if you need a babysitter for the evening.
The bishop will be coming later in the Spring to confirm and receive new members into the Episcopal Church. He will also be doing some baptisms at the same service. If you have been confirmed in a church that has bishops you are recieved into the Episcopal Church. Everybody else is confirmed. The preparation classes are the same.
ADULT preparation classes will be Sunday mornings at 9:30 during the Christian Formation time. Contact The Rev. Mark Wilkinson for more information.
Classes for high school students will be Sunday evening during the EYC time. Contact Chuck Marks for more information.
