Together in Faith: “For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers and sisters, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?” Matthew 5:46- 4
Jesus once again invites us to step outside our comfort zones and reach out to those different from us, those who lack what we have, those we might not be inclined to care for. Lent is a good time to put Jesus’ challenging encouragement into practice.
Thank You: A special thanks to the Mesa Caledonian Pipe Band for their performance of some of our music today! They will be back again on Palm Sunday, April 9th to play our procession.
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there will be an assigned member of the Bishop's Committee to serve as a Parishioner Liaison. We encourage parishioners to seek out this assigned member whenever there is a suggestion, question or concern. The liaisons will bring all comments to the monthly meeting of the Bishop's Committee to be addressed as appropriate. This is one small step the committee is taking to unite our church and improve communications within our family. A schedule of each week's liaison will be visibly posted in the Narthex and the assigned liaison will attend both English services and Lion's Den on Sunday so they are available to receive any input from parishioners. This week’s Parishioner Liaison is Terry Gordon.
United Thank Offering Ingathering: We are conducting the final ingathering for UTO on Sunday, March 29th. Please write a check for the amount of coins that were in your UTO box, payable to St. Mark’s. Place it in a marked envelope, located in the narthex, and put it in the offering plate. (If you need help locating the envelopes, please see an usher.) Thank you for your support of this important ministry.
