This weekend is going to be a blast here at St. Mark’s by-the-Lake. This weekend we celebrate together the joy of having completed our renovations and expansion as dedicate our new space to the glory of God for work and service in our time. There is more than one opportunity this weekend to come and celebrate with us:
A Dedication Concert: – Tonight at 7:30 PM (doors open at 7 PM) we have a near sold our concert in our church. Our Choir has been rehashing nonstop and have put together a great evening of both sacred and fun music. Maya Angelou is credited with saying, "A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song." Our lives are really about the song. We need to celebrate the gift of music more often. The church was gifted with a beautiful Clavinova from Dr. Wayne Paprosky. Our very skilled and talented Director of Church Music Andrea Morosin has been giving it a great workout with the choir these past few weeks as they ready themselves for this concert. Our choir ‘has a song!’ We have a very gifted group of singers who with the clever and masterful direction of Andrea, bring music to a place of prayer. Tonight you have an opportunity to soak in that great gift – take advantage of it. There are still a few tickets available but we are going to have a very full house. While tickets will be available at the door, If you want to come I would suggest calling the church office to pick up tickets in advance – it will assure you of a ticket and it will assist us getting everyone on and seated in a timely fashion. At $15 it is a great evening out with wonderful music. I might also suggest coming early as seats are first come, first serve.
Congratulations on the completion of your renovations and expansion, we would love to be with you this weekend to help celebrate. Looking forward to seeing you all again.Gary and Helen
