"Living windows of faith" - A sermon series

The stained glass windows surrounding us as we worship in the sanctuary at St. Mark's tell the story of our faith. They also tell the story of the faith of God's people at St. Mark's. With endurance and assurance of God's constant presence and guidance more than one obstacle has been overcome for this community of faith since God called them to be in this place. The sanctuary windows were installed in 1985 when St. Mark's was only 25 years old. And now almost 40 years later, we still celebrate the story they tell. St. Mark's is grateful to each family who graciously made it possible to install the stained glass windows. The story and beauty of our faith will long be remembered through their love. Beginning on Christmas Day, 2022 and lasting through May, 2022 with only a break for Lent, we will be sharing the amazing story of faith told through these windows.
