The Second Sunday of Easter
A lmighty and everlasting God, who in the Paschal mystery established the new covenant of reconciliation: Grant that all who have been reborn into the fellowship of Christ's Body may show forth in their lives what they profess by their faith; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

the Walk for Good Food
has gone virtual this year, with participants walking in their own neighborhoods. You can do your walk from May 3rd through May 13th. While there are many things in place to stop the spread of this virus in our community, you still need to continue to follow social distancing guidelines and other directives made by public health officials and government leaders. You’re encouraged to walk individually or with your household and maintain a distance of 6’ from anyone else.
St. Mark's needs to have at least 25 walkers signed up for our team and to raise at least $500 in support of our Breakfast Cafe. You may join our team
and/or donate by sending in a check to St. Mark's or visiting this link:

A Message from your Stewardship Ministry
Stewardship at St Mark’s Church

Like many in our Parish, city, state, country and world, prayer has become a daily occurrence. We thank our Lord daily for his help in helping us to get through the Corona Virus Pandemic. As we take time each day to say a Prayer or ask our Lord for help, we at St Mark’s want to help as much as possible. 

Our St Mark’s family works together to make a difference in our Parish and community. Please, continue to pray for St. Mark’s, our parishioners, our staff and all those for whom we have promised to pray. We walk through this very serious situation together, during a very demanding time, and we need one another as a family of faith.

Our Stewardship saying “Shining Our Light” means so much in many ways. It means be faithful to the mission to which we are called at St. Mark’s to share ourselves and our gifts with one another for the sake of doing the best we can to help build the Kingdom of God, the Reign of God, in our midst. 
May God continue to bless us as a community of faith in all we do as good stewards of the many gifts God continues to give us.  For all those gifts, we give God thanks and praise.

Blessings to you. Be safe. Be heathy. Be grateful.
