Wednesday Night Worship Honors Feast of St. Mark

April 22nd, 2015 by sjl+

St MarkThis week Church of the Messiah will take a few moments out of our Mid-Week Worship to honor St. Mark the Evangelist, the Patron Saint of Egypt (whose feast day is this Friday).  In doing so, we will also take time to commemorate and honor the lives of 30 Coptic Christians who were martyred by ISIS terrorists over the past weekend.  This commemoration of the faithful departed will be part of our regular weekly service which includes readings from the Holy Scriptures and a brief homily; times of prayer, intercession, anointing, and ministry; and praise and worship as well as Holy Communion.  Our previous services were wonderfully powerful and the worship will continue again this week beginning at 7 o’clock.  Childcare is provided during this service (though children are welcome for worship and communion), and the service ends by 8:30 for those needing to get home to prepare for work or school on the following morning.  We invite everyone to join us this Wednesday and Wednesdays throughout the Easter season as we celebrate the Resurrection of Our Lord in this powerful way.
