On St. Mark’s Day, help us reach out, spruce up and sing

Join us on Saturday, April 22, as we observe St. Mark’s Day by gathering at 9 am in service to our community and to our church. There will be something for everyone to do, regardless of age or physical condition. The morning will end with lunch provided in our Community Life Center. It will be a great family affair and a way to model for our young people ways that we can all serve.

Starting April 2, look for sign-up in the Concourse and during Community Time in our Community Life Center for these activities:

St. Mark’s Spring Cleaning

Inside the Centrum: Vacuuming the chair s and dusting furniture. Please bring your vacuum cleaners that have hoses/upholstery attachments for cleaning the blue chairs.

Outside our buildings: Tidying flower beds, trimming and planting in the Memorial Garden, Covenant Garden and general grounds.

Spring Arbor Assisted Living: Join us at this facility across New Hope Road for a sing-along for the residents with musical accompaniment, lyrics and refreshments. Singers and non-singers needed for setup, cleanup and companionship.

Care Packages for homebound St. Mark’s members: In support of the new Pastoral Visitors Ministry, we will assemble bags with nonperishable goodies, such as note cards and stamps, healing prayers and devotionals, etc. for the visitors to take with them on their first visits as tokens of our love and concern. This is a good activity for young children and those young at heart who need a less physically demanding task.
