We hope to see you there! Here’s a description of the show:

“As part of its year long Stonewall 50 commemorating theatre series REBELS, ROWDIES AND REVOLUTIONARIES, Theatre at St. Johns is excited to present a National Coming Out Day special production that interweaves stories of love, faith, and self-discovery. MARC IN VENICE is a unique play that is anything but a typical coming out story. Set in three different centuries, three different men share a name and a pursuit of the truth - and what it means in their lives. Faith and fear, adventure and risk, love and courage come into play as a saint runs from his call, a great traveler strives to tell his story, and a young man finds himself, all in the romantic city of Venice.” Written and Directed by Rev. Mark Erson

Audience members of a recent workshop production said:

  • Run, don't walk to see this production!!...the play was so well written.
  • Serious, yet whimsical, ...both existential and personal. Delightful.
  • Reminded me where hope is to be found.
  • An engaging meditation on the unchanging power of truth in the midst of the changes of history. It was funny and moving.
  • An intense and provocative play
  • Reminds us that Truth is still an honorable and worthwhile journey.

  • Romans 2:12-16

    12All who have sinned apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who have sinned under the law will be judged by the law. 13For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous in God's sight, but the doers of the law who will be justified.

Collecting Food for the Hungry and Homeless

As the weather begins to change, life for those who are hungry and homeless becomes even more difficult. Please bring non-perishable food items and place them in the baskets at the sanctuary entrance. The food we collect will be taken to the food pantry at Trinity Lutheran Church, Lower Eastside.


Healing Services

We offer brief healing services on the 1st and 3rd Sundays each month. These are powerful times of anointing and prayer. They are held in the sanctuary after the 11 AM service.
