Christmas Eve Services

Christmas Eve services will be held at noon, 6:30, and 8:30.

Wreaths Across America

In 1992 the Worcester Wreath Company in Maine began donating 5000 wreaths to be placed on Veteran's graves at Arlington National Cemetery. Last year wreaths were placed on 540,000 graves in every National Cemetery in America.

This year the National Wreaths Across America Day will be Saturday, December 13. Members of St. Mark's are invited to join in this remembrance at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery and help place wreaths on Veteran's graves.

Social Services Ministry Announcements

Again this year, Social Services Ministry is accepting donations to help needy families in our area to have a Merry Christmas. This year we have three large families in need of help (one family of nine and two families of seven). You may leave your donations in the chests at either entrance to the sanctuary. We will accept donations through December 21. Please make sure that the gifts are wrapped and labeled appropriately.

Thank you in advance for your support.

Volunteers Needed

We would like to expand our pool of volunteers serving as Lectors, Greeters, and Communion Assistants. If you haven't been asked to serve and would like your name added to the list, please call the church office or let Pastor Jim know.
