Together in Faith: Abraham set (the food) before the three men and waited on them while they ate. Genesis 18:8
Stewardship usually involves caring for others, as Abraham does in this reading. Waiting on others can seem time-consuming and a bother, but it’s been the way of God’s people from the beginning.
OFFICE CLOSED: The church office will be closed on Friday, July 26.
Fr. Harold Knight: The parish of St. Mark’s will honor and celebrate the Rev. Cannon Harold S. Knight’s 107th birthday on Sunday, July 21st. His actual birth date is July 26th. Fr. Knight served St. Mark’s from 1957 to 1977. Our parish hall has been named in his honor. He lives in his home in Mesa and he and his wife, Edithanne, are doing well, according to their caregiver. We will have a cake in his honor and would like to “shower” him with birthday cards. Cards may be mailed to the office, and we will have a basket in the Narthex and one in Knight Hall to collect the cards which will be delivered to him. If you have any questions, please see Jeanette Rogers. Even if you do not know him, please send him a card.
Back to School: The Food Pantry volunteers will be giving out backpacks and school supplies during the July food distributions. There will be a donation box in the Narthex on July Sundays . Suggested donations are: Note paper, pens, pencils, markers, glue, scissors, rulers, file folders, crayons. Thank you for helping kids start the school year feeling prepared to succeed.
