Congregational Meeting

St Mark's congregational meeting is this Sunday, November 23rd at 1 pm. Prior to the meeting, the Lutheran Youth of Faith (LYF) will host a soup and sandwich luncheon which will be served immediately following the late service.

Make It Simple

This year our congregation will be participating in a stewardship program entitled “MAKE IT SIMPLE”. The MAKE IT SIMPLE theme will be the focus for our worship services Sunday November 9 through Sunday November 30. The concluding worship will include an opportunity for each household to bring forward to the altar their Commitment Card indicating their financial support intent to the ministry of St. Mark’s for the coming year.

Social/Community Service Ministry Request

We are again collecting non-perishable food items for families in need this Thanksgiving.

We currently have 2 families in need; the first family has 7 members, 5 children and 2 adults, the second family had 2 members, 1 child and 1 adult.

We are accepting donations until Sunday, November 23. You may place your donations in the benches at either entrance to the sanctuary.

Thank You,
Molly Stanton

To help get a new ministry off the ground, the Alternative Worship Committee will soon be selling homemade candles. Candles are 8oz and scents will include seasonal and holiday, as well as a few year round scents. The cost will be one for $7.00 or two for $12.00. Candles will be available in time for gift giving.

St. Jude's Children Hospital

Mercedes Bretz will be walking to raise funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Won't you please help find a cure and save our children by making a donation. Donations should be given to Mercedes Bretz.

Music Note

Would you like to be part of St. Mark's Chyme ensemble? Previous experience or note reading are not necessary; we learn together. We are in the process of reorganizing and welcome members, Junior high age to adult. We rehearse Wednesday evenings at 7-7:45 pm in the church nave. We play for services the third and fourth Sunday of the month.

Please consider joining! Feel free to speak to me on any Sunday.

Power Pack Program

St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church is now participating in the Power Pack Program run through the Central Dauphin School District. The program provides nutritious foods for the weekend for families who are "Food Insecure".

We are in need of volunteers to pack backpacks, distribute backpacks, and to help unload the food truck.

Packing of the backpacks occurs each Wednesday from 4:30 to 7:30PM at CD Middle School. Use Door 18 on the Houcks Road side of the school to get in. There are Power Pack Logos on the doors.
