St. Mark's Offerings

Sunday : 
Personnel and Evangelism Teams meet at noon
The office will be closed Tuesday, January 21. No Mid-day Service with Communion.  Mid-Day service resumes the following Tuesday, January 28, at 12:15 pm.  Vestry meets Tuesday at 6pm.

We have made our 105 pledge goal!  Many thanks to all for their support of St. Mark's ministry.
Every dollar pledged reduces our reliance on our investment account and strengthens our diocesan loan application to pay for needed building repairs!
If you haven't already done so, please bring your card to church this Sunday or pledge on-line 
Pledge envelopes for those who ordered them are in and may be picked up in the Office.  


Food Pantry Ministry - we could use a few good hands!
Help out on 2nd and 4th Saturdays, set-up begins at 8:15am, we start serving at 9am and close at 10:30am.  
We could use help running the dishwasher, setting up tables and tableware, busing tables and cleaning up.  Sign up on-lineor speak with Karen Franklin. And as the weather gets colder donations of warm gloves, socks, and hats are welcome!

Please continue to shop for the Food Pantry!
We are always in need of our staples: 
soups, canned pastas, tuna, Vienna sausages, peanut butter, fruit cups, and water; especially items with pull tab lids.

12-Step Host for January 22 is Alison Beckner.  Volunteers are needed to support this ministry of presence.  To help out, contact Ed Street at edstreetva@gmail.com or sign up on line.
