    Easter 2012

    Alleluia! Christ is risen. The Lord is risen indeed. Alleluia!


    Easter is God’s victory over the evil and fear that confront our personal lives and the life of this world. Nothing can scare us again, not even death. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is God’s lasting word of hope. “Fear not! I am with you always,” God says from the empty tomb. “Nothing can ever separate you from my love.” And that promise is what gives us courage to live fully now.

    St. Mark’s is a community filled with this Easter faith. Our church and school community is bustling with life and bursting with hope. WE WILL! Build in Faith continues to flourish, and its benefits are obvious.

    The new youth center and gymnasium are filled day and night, and our athletic programs are thriving while our youth group participants are growing closer to God and to one another. Ministries like the St. Mark’s Neighborhood Autistic Athletic Program (SNAAP) and Mothers of Preschool Children (MOPS) are blossoming from a facility that enables us to reach others with the hands and heart of the risen Christ.

    The Peace Chapel at St. Mark’s and the new administration building are set to open this summer. Not only is the campus being made safe and secure, we are also providing a more welcoming entry for all who visit. The Peace Chapel will remain open 24/7 as a place of prayer for all people seeking peace and quiet. And, the newly renovated and enlarged memorial garden will offer visitors another quiet sanctuary.

    Our eyes are now turning to the third phase of our building program: St. Mark’s Hall. This new dining hall for school lunches, church dinners and socials will include a fully equipped kitchen; stage and auditorium space; multi-function areas for church and school meetings; classrooms for art, band, chorus, and computers; a new Parents’   Association room; and gathering spaces like a coffee shop and  bookstore.


    Thanks to the generosity of so many we have almost $4 million in cash and pledges in hand. In order to move ahead with the construction of St. Mark’s Hall will need to raise $3 million in cash or at least $4 million in pledges in the next six months. And when we reach that milestone, our hopes and dreams will come true!

    Please . . . apply your Easter faith and join me in saying, “WE WILL! Build in Faith!” I need each of you to consider how you can help us meet our goals. While others might worry that our dreams are too big, I give endless thanks for the power of God to work within this community of St. Mark’s. I have no doubts that we will pull together and raise the additional funds we need for Phase III.

    Please, prayerfully consider joining me and hundreds of others who have made a commitment to the build a new St. Mark’s and to ensure that we are a beacon of faith, hope, and light for many years to come.

    Call the campaign office anytime at 561-622- 1504, ext. 232, or email [email protected] and tell us how you will help us reach our goal.

    Remember, with God all things are possible . . . even new life after death. Won’t you join us in reaching out in faith by making a gift today?

    The Rev. James B. Cook Rector
