3 Episcopal churches combine into one

From Eastern Michigan-

After this Sunday, All Saints Episcopal in Marysville, St. Paul's Episcopal in St. Clair and St. Mark's Episcopal in Marine City will be combining to make a new congregation that for the time being will be called the Blue Water Episcopal Church.

"We're going to be looking forward and as we get suggestions from the congregation we're going to be looking for a new name," said Michael Turnbull, senior warden for the new congregation. "We already have asked for suggestions, and the suggestions are coming in."

The first services for the new church will be March 5 — the first Sunday in Lent — at St. Mark's, 527 N. William St., Marine City. Service times are 8 a.m. and 10 a.m.

The plan for Lent is two services in each of the locations and Easter services at St. Mark's, Turnbull said.
