News & Events
HOLIDAY MEALS PROJECT
As the Advent and Christmas Season approach, please remember our annual collection of funds for Food Lion gift cards to be given to deserving families in our area. We first look to our own congregation for ways to use these gift cards.
Our secondary Holiday Meals goal will be to provide the families we are now assisting at Parkview through the Back Pack Meals Ministry with $25 Food Lion gift cards in December. At the present time, we have 96 children. In this way we are able to share the many blessings given to us by God with those children and families so much less fortunate. Contributions in any amount may be made beginning through December 10th. Make your check out to St. Mark’s and mark your check and/or envelope HOLIDAY MEALS. Acknowledgement cards that can be inserted in a greeting card or enclosed with a gift will be available in the Narthex and side hallway. These cards make your contribution a special gift in honor of a family member, co-worker, boss, or friend. The card reads: "A donation to the Holiday Meals Project of St. Mark's Lutheran Church has been given in your honor. This gift provides grocery store gift cards to needy families in the Mooresville area.
Watch for updates each week in the bulletin. For additional information, contact Marilyn Boardman at 704-663-7156 or firstname.lastname@example.org

IMPORTANT COMMUNICATIONS SURVEY
St. Mark's Communications & Technology Committee is charged with improving the ways we do the work of the church. One of the most important processes is communicating with our members. Presently we use printed, mailed publications, emails, and automated phone calls. We will be adding mobile phone text messaging and "push notifications" on our phone app. We would like to use the means each member prefers in order to make our communications most effective.
Please indicate your preferred, most reliable form(s) of communication for St. Mark’s staff and officers to use. Feel free to submit additional forms for any family members that need to get communications separately. Thank you!
