Christmas 2017

There are lots of special events and services happening over Christmas at St. Mark’s and St. Andrew’s. They’re to help us remember why we celebrate so much at Christmas time as we think about the special gift – God’s Son Jesus Christ – that we thank God for each year. Why not try to get along to one or two of them?
