As a rule, St. Markans enjoy the Holy Eucharist and Holy Communion (the Lord’s Supper) each Sunday.
First Sundays are different. On the First Sunday of each month, we have a Morning Prayer service that comes from our rich tradition of communal prayer. As is the case every Sunday, we have readings from Holy Scripture. But there is more music and a greater emphasis upon prayer. This includes an opportunity for people to receive prayer at the communion rail after the sermon while the congregation sings and prays.
This invitation gives people a chance to respond to God’s Word and Presence in a less private way than usual, and to receive the ministry of fellow Christians in the power of the Holy Spirit. Lives are being touched and transformed. Don’t miss our next First Sunday!
Individuals are invited to respond to God’s Word as the congregation sings.
