St Mark Health Commission will offer CPR/AED training on Saturday, Aug 20, 2022. More than 350,000 Americans suffer cardiac arrest annually. Immediate resuscitation can double or triple a person’s chance of survival. In the U.S., someone dies of cardiovascular disease every 36 seconds and of a stroke every three minutes. You can be a lifesaver by learning CPR and how to use the Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

The class will be held in the Fellowship Hall from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Our favorite instructor Rob Pryce will teach the class.  Please be aware there is limited seating. You may sign up on the patio after church on Sunday, August 7 & 14, call Ann Scott your Parish Nurse (714-323-5046), or email the church office at

It will be shown with the Pacific Symphony performing the music, live, at the FivePoint Amphitheatre (14800 Chinon, Irvine, CA 92618). Tickets are free but you must register by Aug. 4th at this link here. For coordinating purposes, after you’ve registered, please email SueJeanne Koh at

Join us on Tuesday, August 2nd from 6:30 pm-8:30 pm at St. Mark for fellowship and lively discussion! We’ve revamped and reinvigorated our “Brew Theology” format and hope you’ll join us. We aim to be a supportive community that enables us to deconstruct and reconstruct our faith together, with curiosity, wonder, and humor. This month’s discussion will be on Process Theology, led by Matt Moncrief, our friend from Canyon Hills. If you’re able, bring some food to share and a beverage of your choice. We often do a beer share, but non-alcoholic drinks and other libations are equally welcome. Questions? Please reach out to Cheers!


Sunday, July 31st, marks the beginning of our exciting Summer Choir! All tuneful voices are welcome to sing on the last Sunday of the month throughout the summer. Simply come to the Sanctuary promptly at 8:30 a.m. to create an “Instant Choir”. We will only rehearse music for the day and will sing for the 9:30 am service. If you have ever thought about singing in the choir, Summer Choir is a great way to try it out!”
