Announcements
THANK YOU ST. MARK!   Your generous contributions provided SPIN (Serving People in Need) with 223 pairs of socks and 251 boxers. Kim, Director of Events and Volunteer Services says, "I just received hygiene kits and I'll use the socks for the kits.  The boxers are really special because I don’t think anyone hands them out to the homeless, it will be a real treat for them." As usual, the generous St. Mark members and friends answered the call to service. Thank you!

ST. MARK BLOOD DRIVE August 18, 2019 . Sign-ups on the patio after worship or contact Gary Johnston at 714.267.7152 or email  j.g.johnston@sbcglobal.net . Help make our Blood Drive successful!
