HOW CAN I SERVE?
Lives are changed every week at St. Mark because of the hundreds of members of our church family that volunteer in a wide variety of ways. Our desire is that everyone would serve somewhere using his or her gifts to help us accomplish our mission.  Wondering how you can get involved?  Pick up a "Next Step Service Opportunities" brochure this Sunday at the Ministry Center in the church foyer.
A GIFT THAT MAKES A SPIRITUAL IMPACT
St. Mark has a scholarship fund that is used to enable St. Mark children, teens, or adults needing financial assistance to attend spiritual growth events such as retreats, conferences, and Prairie Camp. Please consider making a contribution.  Make checks payable to St. Mark, designated 'scholarships'.
