Infusing faith into celebratory festivities
GLBTI and straight alliance members from St. Mark’s participate in Sacramento’s annual Pride celebration, both at the parade and festival. Church leaders the membership are committed to demonstrate to the GLBTI and Sacramento communities that St. Mark’s is an open and welcoming Christian community for ALL people.
A growing contingent of affirming interfaith groups participate in the parade from churches all over the Sacramento area. St. Mark’s ”marches” with this group on a regular basis. Those interested in join the Interfaith Coalition can meet on the parade day on 4th Street between Capitol Mall and N Street. Be there by 10:45am. The parade route runs on N Street from 4th Street to 10th Street.
St. Mark’s also hosts an outreach booth at the festival to demonstrate that there are Christians who love and accept the GLBTI community as they are and welcome them into God’s family with arms open wide. It’s an event for which St. Mark’s plans for months in advance and looks forward to each year. Stop by the booth at the festival between 11:00am and 5:00pm to encourage those who are serving there!
