Latest News from St Mark UMC
- Sunday, July 3, St. Mark welcomed our new pastor Jeff Ponder-Twardy, who delivered his first sermon as the shepherd of our flock! Pastor Jeff is a graduate of Towson University in Baltimore and a graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington D. C. It's there that he met his wife April Ponder, who is from Weaver, AL. They have two adult children and they have settled into the parsonage.
- On Sunday, August 14 at 4:30pm, the choir will begin rehearsing for a Christmas Musical of Worship and Wonder titled "What Kind of Throne." If you are interested in singing with the choir this season, come to this rehearsal or contact Tony Wood through our main office.
- Sunday evening July 3, the St. Mark choir performed a Patriotic cantata called "I Believe in America." After that, we had an Ice Cream Social in the Fellowship Hall. The homemade ice cream and other treats were delightful, and everyone got a chance to get to know Pastor Twardy-Ponder and his wife April better.
- There was a lot of hustle and bustle going on the weekend of April 9-10 at St Mark! The United Methodist Men's Club (with a little help from volunteers from the United Methodist Women's Club) successfully hosted it's annual Pancake Breakfast Saturday morning, with a great turnout of congregants, visitors from the community, as well as the Rainbow Omega group. Many thanks to all the volunteers that helped make this event a success.
