St. Mark's Notes

This Sunday we welcome the Rt. Reverend Shannon Johnston, Bishop of Virginia for the rites of Baptism, Confirmation, and Reception.
 
Mid-day Service with communion: every Tuesday at 12:15pm.  
 
Vacation Bible School-The Promised Land is June 26, 27 & 28, 6-7:30pm.
Best for ages 4-10/11, $30 per child covers all supplies + dinner. Sign up with Malinda by June 17!
 
Family Foyer Group Fun, Sunday June 24, 5pm. Best for families with young children. Contact Blair McDuff or Denis Riva to learn more.
 
What's up with the peeling paint? St. Mark's is preparing for major roof replacement, exterior wall repairs, and replacement of the exterior window covers. We are currently evaluating bids and looking at schedules. Until the roof and exterior are repaired it makes no sense to paint as the paint will just continue to peel. We don't expect to start work until after Christmas 2018. Stay tuned for more building news.
 
The Coffee Hour Ministry is looking for four more volunteers--singles or couples--to fill out our fourteen teams for the 2018-19 year.  New volunteers would be included on an already functioning team.  Please contact the office, or Penny Adams (818-802-3428 or NBFGinc@aol.com) if you can help with this very important St. Mark's ministry.

Outreach

St. Mark's is hosting CARITAS INTAKE NIGHTLY between 5 and 7:30 p.m. from Saturday, June 30th through Friday, July 27th.  Your always-appreciated food and water donations can be dropped in the St. Mark's kitchen each Tuesday - Friday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. or on Sundays as you visit church. List is on-line and here: cases of bottled water, packs of nabs, granola or fruit bars, Rice Krispies Treats, large boxes of Goldfish crackers, snack size packaged cookies or brownies, individually packaged bags of chips, cheez-its, veggie straws, pretzels.
 
New this year for CARITAS Intake! Do you play the piano, the guitar, maybe the violin or electric keyboard? Do you like to sing? Would you like to join the ladies for a few minutes to provide some "waiting-for-the-bus" music or lead them in song?   Do you like to paint or draw or craft? Perhaps you'd be willing to share your drawings or paintings or "know-how" with the ladies. Maybe host a quick game of bingo?  Sign up online  
Questions? Contact Suzanne Long, Suzanne_long@hotmail.com.
 
Food Pantry:  Please continue to shop for the Food Pantry.  We need our staples - Vienna sausages, tuna, canned pastas, mac & cheese, hearty soups & stews, breakfast bars, and pop tarts.  Toiletries are always welcome.  
We can also use donations of pastries, muffins and cookies. We serve on 2nd & 4th Saturdays.
 
We no longer accept donations of used clothing for the Food Pantry or the Yard Sale.  Please take your clothing donations to Grace & Holy Trinity, First Baptist or Tabernacle Baptist.
