Together in Faith: But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you. 2 Thessalonians 3:3
God’s faithfulness invites our own. We are told that God is faithful not just for information, but for encouragement. We express our faithfulness in many ways, of course… but the main ways are by loving God and loving our neighbor as ourselves. How do I show my faithfulness today?
Thanksgiving Celebration: Please join us for a Thanksgiving Celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 23rd, for a service of Holy Eucharist at 10 am, followed by our annual Thanksgiving feast. We are asking that you contribute a potluck dish to the meal. Beverages will be provided. Feel free to bring your family and friends along. If you plan on joining us, please sign up between the services on Sundays.
Christmas Compassion: This year St. Mark’s will sponsor five low income families with children at Christmas. We would like the families to enjoy a full beautiful Christmas with a tree, decorations, dinner, and gifts of clothes and toys. We will gather donations and purchase gift cards for groceries, gas, and department stores. This will facilitate the purchase of clothes and toys, to avoid sizes and gender lists. Pre-owned, good condition Christmas trees and decorations will be appreciated. Anyone willing to help with this project, please contact Fr. Gerardo Brambila or Gloria McManus in the office.
Thanksgiving Donations: Food Pantry volunteers will be in the Lion’s Den between services collecting donations toward the purchase of Thanksgiving gift cards this year. We are giving $10.00 Food City gift cards this year instead of turkeys. United Food Bank informed us they could not supply us with turkeys because the cost of turkeys had become prohibitive. We hope to give all our families a gift card, which they can use to purchase their choice of meat for Thanksgiving.
