Information & Input Session on
Affordable Housing for Seniors  in Kensington

Sunday June 30
11:15am-12 noon
Saint Mark Presbyterian, 10701 Old Georgetown Rd, Rockville (in the main Sanctuary)

An innovative developer is proposing affordable 
housing for seniors in Kensington, and would like to share information and get input on the project. No affordable housing has been built in 
Kensington in a long time, and this is a key opportunity for seniors on limited incomes to stay
in our community.

Girl mom book club: A note from Pastor Shelby 
I just ordered the book called "Enough as She Is: How to Help Girls Move Beyond Impossible Standards of Success to Live Healthy, Happy, and Fulfilling Lives." The author, Rachel Simmons, has written several other good books that I have read over recent years and have taken on new meaning for me as a new mom to a girl!
I am going to read it this summer and was wondering if any of you wanted to join me? We could read it together over the summer and then have a few discussion nights in the fall. Let me know if you are interested, and if so, if you'd be willing to host at your home one evening in the fall. Please email me:

The renovation of the sacristy behind the wall in the sanctuary is now complete.  

Interfaith Works Shower Donations
Saint mark is keeping a box in the hall closet where you can drop off regular or sample size soap, shampoo, conditioner and lotion for interfaith works showers.

A easy opportunity to help Hearts with Haiti one of our mission partners which has seen a decline in visitors and therefore income at their guest houses due to the unstable political situation. Per their newsletter: Do your online shopping through AmazonSmile
( and choose "Hearts with Haiti Inc" as your designated charity.  It is exactly the same shopping experience as the regular Amazon site, but with a portion of qualifying purchases are donating to Hearts with Haiti.  
You may also want to watch the recently created videos about St. Joseph Family ministries on the Hearts with Haiti YouTube channel.
Thank you.  Saint Mark Mission Ministry
