Together in Faith: When the man heard (what Jesus said), he was shocked and went away grieving, for he had many possessions. Mark 10:22
Jesus suggested that the man give away everything he had… no wonder he was shocked, no wonder he went away, grieving. Jesus’ suggestion to each of us, though it may be very different from this man’s, may be equally shocking. What is that suggestion, and how do we feel about it?
Bishop's Committee Parishioner Liaison: Every week there is 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 week’s Parishioner Liaison is Maureen Davies.
Halloween Celebration: There will be trick or treating and games for the children on Sunday, October 28 after the 10 am service. Donations of candy and/or game prizes are needed and appreciated. These items can be left in the kitchen or front office.
Thanksgiving Donations: It's almost time for Turkey again! If you would like to donate toward the purchase of gift cards for Turkeys, Food Pantry volunteers will be accepting donations during coffee time. The gift cards will be given to those in need during food distribution on November 13th.
Thanksgiving: Our annual Thanksgiving service will be held on Wednesday, November 21 at 10 am with Thanksgiving brunch after service. The church will provide two turkeys, but we would like people to sign up for various side dishes and beverages.
Honoring Veterans: We would like to ask for pictures of all active military and all veterans associated with St. Mark’s to update our bulletin board in the courtyard as well as creating an honorarium for Veteran’s Day, 2018. Please contact or send pictures (including names, dates of service, rank and branch) to Mary Ortega at email@example.com by November 4th.
Sale at MarkDowns: The Thrift Store will have NEW UNUSED items for sale on Sundays during the coffee hour, between 8:45 and 9:45. So come and browse and make your selections. The Thrift Store continues to be opened on Sundays from 8:45-9:45 AM., between the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services. Also, we need volunteers especially now due to several people having health issues. We need to have at least two people to have the store open otherwise it has to close. All our profits go to help with the church's expenses.
