  • EASTER SUNDAY SERVICES - April 21, 9:00 am & 10:30 am.  Please invite unchurched neighbors, friends, family, and coworkers to attend with you!
EASTER SUGGESTIONS
We anticipate that a parking shortage may be an issue on Easter Sunday.  In order to assure plenty of good parking for our guests, please consider coming as a family in one car.  It would also be helpful if some who usually attend second hour would attend the nine o'clock service making room in the 10:30 service for the many anticipated guests.  
50+ POTLUCK THIS SUNDAY
If you are age 50 or over, you are invited to enjoy a potluck dinner this Sunday, April 14, immediately after 2nd service in Room 111.  Each individual/couple is asked to bring either a large salad or vegetable dish to share.  Paper products, meat, potatoes, desserts and drinks will be provided.   There is no agenda - just plenty of food, fun and fellowship.
CAPITAL CAMPAIGN REMINDER
Year one of the 2018-2021 capital campaign concludes at the end of April.  We are so thankful for those who continue to give sacrificially  over and above regular tithe.  70% of campaign donations go to debt retirement and 30% towards facility improvements.  We are especially excited to report that our mortgage debt just dropped below $200,000.  If you have any questions about your pledged giving, contact Jane Anderson in the church office. 
BAPTISM MEETING THIS SUNDAY
Anyone who is interested in being baptized on April 28 is asked to meet with Pastor David this Sunday, April 14 from 10:00-10:30 in Room 112.
CLAIM YOUR LOST ITEMS
There is a table of lost and found articles in the church workroom next to the coffee area. Items include clothing, Bibles, stuffed animals, and drink containers.  Please claim your things this Sunday.  All remaining items will be collected and donated on Monday morning. 
EGG HUNT AT ST. MARK
Don't miss this fun event!  Join us for an INSIDE Easter Egg Hunt and Puppet Show at St. Mark on Saturday, April 20, at 10:00 am.  This event is for children 5th grade and younger.  Come and invite your friends!
ADOPT A SPOT
Do you love being outside in the warm weather?  Would you like to help keep the St. Mark grounds looking beautiful this summer?  We are asking individuals or families to adopt one of the landscape beds at St. Mark for the summer.  The primary job is to keep it free of weeds.  For more information, email Penny Smarrella or Nancy Gradeless or see them at the landscape table in the church foyer on Sunday morning.
