MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
New Mask Styles Available at St. Mark
Our mask making volunteers have created new styles of masks for those who are in need of one. See examples of the different styles here . Also note that there are now "extra large" masks available, too! Thank you for everyone who is providing masks for the community! If you are interested in making some, please let the office know.

St. Mark COVID Response Team
The Church Council and Pastor Mollie sent out an electronic letter yesterday to the St. Mark community with an update of our response to COVID. While the church will continue to be live and active, the building will remain closed through September 1. To find out more details and information, you may access the letter here . One of the biggest needs in the congregation currently is to assemble a "COVID Response Team" to set up procedures for an eventual building reopening, and how that will impact the current life and ministry of St. Mark. If you are interested in being part of this short-term team, and/or have experience and expertise in the area of public health, please contact the church ASAP. If you have any questions or suggestions you may also reach out to the church! You may still call the church anytime at: 763-784-2558.

Seed Pick-Up
Have you picked up your flower seeds from church yet? If not, there is still time! Did you know that zinnias (one of the seed packets available) symbolize endurance and absent friends? What a great reminder during this time of physical distance! Check out this great U of M video all about zinnias. And make sure to plant your seeds. A huge thank you to our plant sale team for their hard work and wealth of resources.

Centennial Schools in Need of Masks
The Centennial Area Kids Club School Age Summer Childcare Program is resuming soon! This is great news, as many working families in our community count on this service. But to best prepare and equip the leaders to care for our young ones, we are in need of masks! If you would like to donate adult size masks to the school district, please contact the church for more information!

St. Mark App
St. Mark has a new app! Vanco, the company we use to process online giving, has created an app for churches to use--especially during this time of physical distance. If you would like to test out this app with us, download "Vanco Mobile" from your app store on your phone. Then search for St. Mark and look for our logo to get started.
This app is designed to keep us connected through church-wide contact, group messaging, and individual messaging.
Vanco values security in all they do, and this app is no different.
You can find more detailed instructions for getting started here .

Virtual Worship Volunteer Sign-Up
We are missing all of our worship volunteers and leaders! Are you interested in leading the congregation in the readings or prayers? Sign up here for the month of May! We will send you a digital copy of the readings or prayers and ask you to record them using your phone or laptop and send them to Tory to add to worship.
ST. MARK FELLOWSHIP HOUR
Beginning at 11:00 am, all are invited to hop on Zoom and check-in with one another. If you cannot access Zoom from your computer, tablet, or smartphone, you may "dial in" on your cell phone with the information below.
