Love is on the way!
St. Mark's will be creating our very own virtual Advent calendar this year. 
Sarah and Malinda will need a bit of time to work together on this project and have it ready-to-launch for the first Sunday in Advent, so we are asking for your help during these pre-advent weeks. We'd love for all of you...our parishioners of all ages...to send us digital pictures (jpegs) of your artwork, crafts, flower arrangements, photographs you've taken...anything of your own creative expression that will help us see together all the ways that we are getting ready to welcome Love into our midst.
 
Also, if you have pictures that you've taken in and around the building during past Christmas seasons...feel free to send them along as well. We are working on several projects to keep us connected throughout Advent and Christmas. The building may be closed but the church is open!
Please email your pictures to Malinda: dre@stmarksrva.org

Christmas Box Lists!
This year we are hoping to serve 50 elder residents of City District 8. We are working to get the lists but like many things, the election has slowed the process.
More information and on-line sign-ups to come!
Food Pantry service continues outside 
on 2nd and 4th Saturdays!
 
We distribute bags, lunches, and fresh fruit at the south entry to those who come.  
If you have donation for the pantry, contact Malinda Collier, dre@stmarksrva.org to arrange a drop off.
 
We need lunch makers for 4th Saturdays! It is pretty easy, make 30 hearty sandwiches, contribute goodies like packaged cookies or chips and always have fresh fruit. This is a great family activity!
 
Sign up on-line, or contact Ed Street if you can help pack bags, edstreetva@gmail.com
 
In-person 12-Step meetings are suspended until further notice from the Governor about group meeting sizes. We have helped the group to set up a Zoom meeting account. Check the AA website for on-line meeting links.
