August Take Home Church

4th of July

Saint Mark’s has the perfect spot for watching the fireworks on the 4th.  We will gather on the Tremont Rd lawn beginning around 7 p.m.  We will have a small grill and cook hotdogs, make popcorn and have some lemonade.

Bring your chair or blanket, any food you want to add to the feast.  The fireworks start around 10 p.m.

We have a booklet of reflections for the 4th based on the prayers for the nation in the Book of Common Prayer.

Farmer’s Market

On Wednesdays from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. the Upper Arlington Farmer’s Market takes place in the parking lot of the Tremont Center, right across the street from Saint Mark’s.

We open the church and invite our neighbors to use our bathrooms, tables and just relax in our space.  We say Compline together at 6 p.m. on the patio.

You can sign up for one of the host shifts or just drop by and join in the conversation.

Street Church

On Sunday June 30 Saint Mark’s will be providing lunch for Street Church put on by Saint John’s Episcopal Church in Columbus.

You can help by helping assemble lunch during coffee hour on the 30th or by going down with the crew to serve lunch.

Herb Garden

In the wooden planter outside the office door, you will find a variety of herbs.  There are scissors and small bags there too.  Cut some herbs and take them home with you.
