You are Most Welcome
At St. John’s, we strive to serve Christ Jesus through Worship, Study, and Community Activities (both inside our walls and outside our walls) in Grand County. Our goal is to show those around us that we live our faith; we don’t just talk about it. We also strive to follow the example Jesus set for us by welcoming the friend and the stranger to the table, loving all people as equals, and showing them respect in ways that make them feel whole.
A Message from Father Mark
Dear friends and church family:
Now that I have been here in Grand County for more than three months I want to share with you how happy I am to be your priest and pastor.
Our churches in Winter Park, Granby and Kremmling are each unique, and I see God at work in the midst of The Episcopal Church in Grand County. We see new and returning faces each week and I can sense that God is all about making us "even better than a Waffle House Restaurant," where we seek to have no ego, no pretense and where we are a place where everyone feels "well taken care of." See the May 28 sermon (in the right hand column) for more of what that all means. :)
I have tried to meet with many of you over the past months, but would welcome the opportunity to get together over coffee or a glass of wine in order to personally get to know even more of you!
As we enter the LONG season of Pentecost it is my hope that God's POWER and PRESENCE will be felt in our homes and in our churches as we grow to become the welcoming presence in our communities that God wants us to be. Let us all seek to spread God's love in all that we do and say.
Call me or send me an email, so that we can get to know one another!
Blessings, Fr. Mark
Art Exhibit at St. John's
We encourage you to swing by St. John's during the month of August to view an exhibit of the art of parishioner Margaret Watts. The exhibit tells the story of her art journeys in Mexico, Sardinia, France and the United Kingdom. Margaret searches for -- and finds -- saints everywhere. Come experience them for yourself!
