St. Mark’s opens new fellowship hall

Services were held for the first time Feb. 26 in the new fellowship hall at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Lappans.

The Rev. Anne O. Weatherholt conducted the service.

The two-story multipurpose building is the first new construction on the church campus since the construction of a sacristy to the original fieldstone church building in 1977. The original church building was built in 1849. The rectory building was constructed in the early 1900s and the present parish hall was built in the 1950s.

Four services a week are held in the original church building for a church membership of 300 households. Services will continue to be held in the original church building.

The fellowship hall will be used by the St. Mark’s congregation for worship services, church education, meetings and fellowship.

The building will also be open to the community for community events, workshops and education opportunities.

The worship area will convert to a large hall capable of hosting receptions and conferences. The handicapped-accessible building offers spacious rooms, plenty of bathrooms and a catering kitchen.

Visitors will find plenty of free parking.
