At St. Mark’s we believe our call to live as disciples of Jesus Christ must include serving others. This isn’t a “let’s help those poor people over there” sort of thing, but rather an opportunity to work alongside and with our neighbors.
Second Saturday Service Day: Starting in the summer of 2018 St. Mark’s has launched our Second Saturday Service Day. We constantly seek ways to engage in hands-on service with the desire to establish on-going relationships with others. Every second Saturday of the month, the Outreach team will organize an event. Some events will be at St. Mark’s, and others will be off-site working with various organizations throughout the region. Each project will be scheduled in advance, with a begin and end time, so everyone will know the time commitment. (Events typically run from 8:30-12). Mark your calendars for every second Saturday of the month! Upcoming Saturday Service days are:
- March 9th: We’ll be teaming up with the Altar Guild to prep the church for the season of Lent & Easter. We’re looking at some or all of the following:
* Filling oil in candles
* Brass polishing
* Murphy’s oil over wood
* Rip-up carpet
- April 13th
- May 11th
- June 8th
- July 13th
Some of the organizations we regularly serve alongside include:
Open Plate Offering: Each month we designate our open plate offerings to a specific non-profit organization that we believe exemplifies our values. Any money not specified for St. Mark’s in our Sunday morning collection is given to them entirely.
