Staying Grounded and Connected

Staying Grounded in the Grace and Love of God

We are in new territory, but church can never be cancelled.  Our mission and our purpose remain: to both hear and proclaim the message of God’s grace and love.  This can feel especially challenging right now, because we are so used to being reminded of that grace and love by each other’s presence.

Below you will find links to various ways to join in the continuing work of the church during this difficult time.

With Governor Kemp’s “Shelter-in-Place” order, the church office is now closed.  Our Parish Administrator is having calls forwarded to a phone at home and will be able (for the most part) to answer the phone during business hours: 9am-3pm.  Additionally, her two email addresses, info@stmarkslg.org and debra@stmarkslg.org, will be checked throughout the day.  Please contact the church like normal via phone and email to conduct your business and stay connected.
