These informal groups bring together a cross section of members for monthly dinners. The purpose is to promote Christian fellowship throughout the parish. These are informal groups of parishioners who get together every 4-6 weeks to enjoy each other’s company. There is no agenda – it’s a time for fellowship that often involves food! The “Restaurant Hop” group meets monthly in local restaurants. If you’d like more information and to sign up contact Lu Treadwell. If you’d like to suggest or offer a group please let us know.
Our group for those over 55 years of age plans special events (outings, classes, and more). For more information contact Beth Melcher Davis.
On May 22, Richmond Hill, a spectacular property overlooking the James River, will host St. Mark’s and GHTC’s “Boomers & Better” (55+) group. Centering prayer begins at 4:15 p.m. and the Community Service begins at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner in the refectory. If you’ve never seen this former monastery in Church Hill and its beautiful gardens, please reserve your seat on the GHTC van today by contacting Barbara Hobson Simpson in the church office! Recommended donation for the dinner is $10.00; the van will depart from GHTC at 3:45 p.m.
This women’s group meets on the second Monday evening of each month for soup, salad, spirits, and good conversation. Contact Cathy Saunders. Please join us!
