SAVE THE DATES!
Vacation Bible School 2021 is August 9-13th from 5:30-8pm

We will once again be partnering with Living Waters Lutheran Church and can't wait to share the theme with you soon! More information will be coming soon!
Our lives are made up of small, daily decisions that eventually shape our character. Jesus highlights this principle in Luke 16:10, “Whoever is faithful in little things will be faithful in large ones.” 
We are inviting each of you to participate in monthly experiment that will engage and encourage you to look at stewardship in a whole new way.

May's experiment is ready to be picked up at church! Grab it after church on Sunday mornings or swing by church during office hours (Mon-Wed 10am-3pm) to pick one up.

If you haven't picked up the last few months of experiments, they are available at church

St. Mark Plant Sale 2021
Unfortunately, it has been brought to our attention that an invasive jumping worm has been found in many areas and has been identified in Minnesota, Anoka County including Lino Lakes and surrounding suburbs. Even the Landscape Arboretum in Chanhassen has had considerable damage. Regrettably we feel the only responsible way to handle this is to postpone our sale again until we know there is a reasonable way to prevent serious damage to the gardens we've all worked so hard to create. If you have any questions please feel free to talk to Barb Saunders, Cindy Huseby, Diane Kampa or Maggie Tennessen.
This week we are praying for:

-Ruth Strubel as she heals from a fall.
-Kelly, the Wilkinson's daughter-in-law, as she starts chemo this week
-Joanne Hanson's sister, Wendy Brown who is going through chemo treatments.
-Sandy Borchert
-Sue Frieburg
-Paula Forester's cousin's Sandie and Mark.
-Mashell Olsen, Sheri Hanson's friend who was recently diagnosed with a metastatic tumor.
-Shannon Cleary, Cheryl Collard's family friend
-Larry Riel - healing from a fall
-Leslie Pracht
-Dave Wilkenson, as he heals from recent knee surgery
-Karen Willy’s sister-in-law, Jeanette, with her new diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
-Paul Thomascak and family, as he goes through chemo treatments.

If you'd like to be added to the prayer chain, please contact Jenny at office@stmarkcp.org
Lawn Mowers and Grounds Maintenance
We would like to thank Brad Ten Haken for mowing the lawn this week! Konrad Huseby, you are up this week.
St. Mark is looking for more people to join the finance team! They meet once a month and are a vital part to keeping our congregation going! No experience is necessary, they are just looking for people who'd like to get more involved with the congregation. Email Jenny (office@stmarkcp.org) if you are interested or have more questions.
Worship Volunteers Are Needed!
As we move forward with in-person worship, we are still in need of lectors, reading of the prayers and ushers. Please sign up if you are interested!
Another area that we could use some help with is a Worship Host. What's that you ask? It is someone, besides Pastor Mollie or Jenny, that makes sure all of our greeters, ushers, lectors, and reader of the prayers are in worship that morning. It's an area that is greatly appreciated and needed for each Sunday morning. If you are interested, send Jenny in the office an email. Thank you!
