SEASONAL CELEBRATIONS & ACTIVITIES

They are like trees planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.
Psalm 1:3
Annual Traditions

Throughout the seasons of the church year, we enjoy many wonderful traditions: a fall and spring picnic, a church tour for children, games and dancing at Oktoberfest, the stewardship dinner, coloring crosses for All Saints, making Advent wreaths, the Christmas pageant, Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, the Triduum with the Way of the Cross, the annual Easter Egg hunt and party, a Pentecost celebration, and Summer Eucharist featuring a sermon geared to younger worshipers.

Vacation Bible School

In early summer, the parish holds an intergenerational learning series called VB-Us. Our take on Vacation Bible School, VB-Us brings the community together for a good meal, singing, and chatauqua-style learning centered around lectures, crafts, skits, and stories.

Welcoming Picnic - Aug 28, 2022

Each year on the last Sunday of August, Parish Life hosts a picnic to welcome newcomers, welcome students back to the mountain, and invite everyone to a new academic year of Sunday School at St. Mark & St. Paul. 

Parish Life provides the main course, and everyone signs up to bring sides and desserts. We gather on the lawn for live music, delicious foods, kids' games, and a relaxed atmosphere to make new friends and greet old friends.
