A few hints for participating in online worship

It can be difficult to view an online service bulletin and a worship livestream on screen at the same time. Some ways to solve this problem:
1. Print the service bulletin. PDFs are easily printed on your home printer. Use your browser to navigate to the online PDF and then choose "print" under your browser's "File" menu. 
2. Use a second device, such as a laptop, iPad, tablet, or Kindle. If you are watching the livestream on your computer, use your tablet or other web-enabled device to follow the link to the service bulletin and use it to follow along.
3. If neither of these options works for you, you can follow along with the service using a Book of Common Prayer and a hymnal. Beginning this week, Rev. Suzanne has added BCP page numbers to the service PDF. We STRONGLY recommend using bookmarks to mark these pages before worship begins! Our services jump all over the prayer book, and you will find it much easier to follow along if you have marked the pages in advance. Most of the hymns are from The Hymnal 1982.  If you do not have a Book of Common Prayer and/or Hymnal, and would like to borrow one, Tom Ellis has volunteered to deliver copies direct to local mailboxes: email Rev. Suzanne at revsuzannewade@gmail.com.

Holy Week (online) at St. Mark's

 

Due to the global coronavirus pandemic, we will not be able to gather in person to  observe Holy Week and Easter this year. But the Church is the people, not the building, so wherever and however we gather — online, offline, at our own dinner tables or in shared prayer — we are the Body of Christ. We invite you to connect with us as we observe Holy Week through these worship opportunities for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil, and Easter Sunday.

Decorate your own door: Place a green branch from your yard over your door as a proclamation of Christ’s coming to the world. Any green branch will work!  Share with others by posting a picture of your branch to the St. Mark’s Facebook page.
