Maundy Thursday Yizkor worship with P’nai Or
Thursday, April 2nd, 7:00 pm.
St. Mark Presbyterian Church and P’nai Or Jewish Renewal Fellowship will hold a joint Maundy Thursday Yizkor service of worship on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at 7 pm at St. Mark, 9750 SW Terwilliger Blvd. Portland, OR 97219. The theme of freedom from all the binds us, will be lifted out of the Exodus story of Passover, the sacrificial death of Jesus, and the hope of God’s unending grace in the Prayer for Martyrs and Mourner’s Kaddish of the Yizkor. This theme is especially important as we remember the 50th anniversary of the freedom marches for Civil Rights. We have moved from Good Friday to Maundy Thursday out of respect for the first night of Passover which falls on Friday this year.
Welcome to St. Mark
We are a progressive, spiritual, socially liberal community which honors its mainline Presbyterian heritage. We believe scripture reveals the faith journeys of an ancient people and culture that is true to their experiences and understandings of the world and that it is meant to be interpreted in every new time and culture, contextually and not literally. We hold to the Reformed Tradition that believes that the church must constantly be reforming and reformed in its worship, theology and polity. We believe that Jesus welcomed all people to his table, so we invite all to share communion with us on the first Sunday of each month.
Our mission is to provide a welcoming and supportive community for children, women, and men of all ages, cultures, and lifestyles who wish to know more about the presence of something more and meaningful in their lives and to empower the gifts of each person within our community, so that, individually and together, we can “help the suffering, support the weak, and strengthen the fainthearted” through acts and attitudes of knowledge, compassion, understanding and social justice.
You are invited to join us for Sunday worship at 10:00 am.
Activities for children and childcare are provided.
