Welcome To St. Mark's Lutheran Church!
St. Mark’s is at the place where we can feel God’s guiding spirit leading us
into a new future. “Behold” says our God,
“I make all things new”. We are
committed to growing our spiritual lives, continually asking, “what does it mean
to follow in Jesus’ footsteps?” We are committed to strengthening the
relationships within the community and developing new relationships with our
friends who come to eat and stay for worship. We are grateful to discover the
joy in being renewed.
From Our Pastor
Ready for Fall
September, 2015 issue of Branches
. . . While the church universal might be going through changes, our
relationships with God are as they have always been. Daily gratitude is one
way of reminding ourselves of this and keeping ourselves open to God’s
loving presence. It doesn’t mean we aren’t sometimes anxious or worried
about what is going on around us but our perspective is bigger than the
present times. We can also contribute to calm and rational problem solving
when we are anchored in God. . .

St. Mark’s Food Pantry
Summer Fresh Produce and Volunteers
Potatoes, apples and sweet corn have been the highlights of the Food
Pantry the past few weeks. We have gained a few new volunteers for
Tuesday morning but are still in need of a volunteer for the second
Thursday of each month. On Thursdays we open the waiting room at 5:30,
unpack the farmer’s market vegetables and are ready for guests at 5:45.
We close at 7:30 on Thursdays. If you know someone looking for a
volunteer experience, pass the word.
Rummmage! Bake Goods! Soup!!
St. Mark's is having a Rummage Sale/Bake Sale/Soup Sale on October 10th.
The sale is from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM September is the perfect month for
fall housecleaning. Bring items you no longer need or want to the
church. I am here most mornings though calling is always a great idea to
be sure I am here or to set up a time to drop off your items. Volunteers
will also be needed throughout the day. Curb and gutters are coming to
Hickory Street this coming spring. Our bill for curbs and gutters in
$7000. Let's see how much of this we can raise!
