In the spirit of sharing, community, and congregation, the facilities at St Mark are utilized by a number of diverse community groups. The sanctuary hosts not only the St Mark services every Sunday morning, but also the worship services of P’Nai Or- a Jewish Renewal Congregation (www.pnaiorpdx.org) . The education and meeting rooms also serve as gathering sites for numerous AA recovery groups.

Laughter Yoga Comes to St. Mark
On Thursday afternoons from 1:30-2:15 pm a “Laughter Yoga” Club is meeting in the Jarrett Wing at St. Mark. Laughter Yoga is a new form of therapy/exercise that incorporates the benefits of Breath Yoga exercises with the physical benefits of laughter and play and can be done sitting down or standing. Class size is usually 4-12 participants. The St. Mark class is the first class meeting in the SW and we hope to draw students from Lewis and Clark, as well as members of P’nai Or and St. Mark congregations. The class is open to everyone free of charge, though some small donations are accepted to cover costs of utilities of the site and publicity. To learn more go to:
Requests for using the facilities can be addressed to Pastor Barbara Campbell
