See Calendar and Announcements for more activities.
June 24 - Peace! Be Still! Mark 4:35–41.
On that day, when evening had come,
he said to them, "Let us go across to the
other side." And leaving the crowd
behind, they took him with them in the
boat, just as he was. Other boats were
with him. A great windstorm arose, and
the waves beat into the boat. Painting:

July 1 - Trust in Jesus. Mark 5:21–43. Then
one of the leaders of the synagogue
named Jairus came and, when he saw him,
fell at his feet and begged him repeatedly,
"My little daughter is at the point of death.
Come and lay your hands on her, so that
she may be made well and live." Illustration:

“An Illustrated Commentary on the Gospel of  Mark” by Phillip Medhurst.

July 8 - Proclaim Repentance. Mark
6:1–13. He called the twelve and
began to send them out two by two,
and gave them authority over the
unclean spirits. He ordered them to
take nothing for their journey
except a staff . . . So they went out
and proclaimed that all should
repent. Image: Christ sends out the twelve apostles. Boyer Bible print. Public domain, Wikimedia.

July 15 - Choose righteously. Mark 6:14–29. 
Some were saying, "John the baptizer has
been raised from the dead . . . " But others
said, "It is Elijah." And others said, "It is a
prophet, like one of the prophets of old."
But when Herod heard of it, he said, "John,
whom I beheaded has been raised." Photo,
