Website Trouble

Note, I’ve been having some website trouble. WordPress updated, which caused a needed update in the theme, which didn’t work. And it continues not to work nicely with some plug-ins. I had to change to a “WordPress” theme to get them working again. But, the preschool tab if still off. (It was using its own CSS which I know nothing about, so still at it.)

Gaudete Sunday – Special Guests


The 3rd Sunday of Advent used to be called Gaudete Sunday. The Sundays used to be named by the first words of the introit (the entrance chant/reading) which were initially in Latin. Gaudete means rejoice. So, depending upon the parish you were a part of as not every parish did the same thing, Gaudete was often given over to a musical celebration – a rejoicing to the Lord with song.

We have continued, or tried to continue, that in various ways. This year we have a saxophone quartet who will be sharing some of the music of the season. They will be playing at the start or prelude to service, a bit during the offertory and then postlude. So, I just want to invite you to come a bit early to get a seat, and plan on sticking around for a little while after service.

(And Kristin, if you’ve got a better photo than my cheesy photoshop, send it along.)

We Were Hacked…But it Should be Good Now

Sorry, our server got hacked. We might have done it to ourselves. But I think it is better now. It might take a few days to ripple through to the system. If you are still getting “warning” from Google or elsewhere, hopefully in the next 24-48 hours they will stop. We hired someone to clean everything up, and the web-host says we are good. So…good. – Parson

Preschool Registration Season

preschool logoI don’t say enough here about how great our preschool teacher is. I might be a little biased, but if you or anyone you know has preschoolers, or a mom of a preschooler who would like a morning or two free, you could not find a better teacher than Cate Marks.

Please Check out the preschool tab.

Or drop her an email: catiemarks at yahoo dot com (I’ll avoid creating a bunch of spam for her.)

Argh! Coding Changes

Once upon a time I had some coding chops. Now, not so much. And Facebook changed something. I logged in and found nobody in the facebook “fan box”. Wondering what had happened, I started checking it out. What had been the facebook page had been deleted, so there go a few hours leaning what the new approved method is. This is in some ways a test. If you have any problems with the site please drop me a note: pastor at saintmarkslutheran dot org.
