What's Happening

  • Habitat for Humanity News Our Towns Habitat has brought the Mooresville Faith Coalition back together to help with two more houses on Burke Circle!  If you recall, last year 6 local churches, including St. Marks, helped sponsor and build a home.  This year, the homes already have financing and they need assistance with the build.  Our Towns Habitat has been very appreciative of our help with Habitat in the past and invites our assistance again. We have 2 options for volunteering to help with this worthwhile and needed local ministry. We have picked 2 workdays to get a group from St. Marks to go work on the houses.  They are Saturday, November 12th (Vinyl Siding) and January 7th (paint and framing).  A ...

  • Council Nominations What does it mean to be a “Church Council Member”?  To serve on the Council is not just an honor, but a “high calling” from God.  A calling which requires much time, devotion, and love.  The Holy Scriptures tell us; such a person should be “of honest report, full of wisdom and the Holy Spirit.”  Therefore, a person is truly “called” to this high office.  If you are interested in being nominated for Council or know of someone to nominate, please contact Jan Wagoner at or 704-572-2166 or Carol at the church office, or 704-664-5474.  Thank you for your prayerful consideration of service.

  • Gratitude Board You will notice the “Gratitude Board” in the Narthex.  There are stickers beside the board where you can write down something you are grateful for this week and put it on the board. Adding your name is optional and you may list as any many things as you like; add something each week.  As our church focuses on gratitude and God’s Grace in Action let’s make our gratitude known! The most obvious lesson in Christ’s teaching is that there is no happiness in having or getting anything, but only in giving.  ~ Henry Drummond

  • Lord's Prayer Versions  "Our Father, who art in heaven...." and/or  "Our Father in heaven...."Our Lord's Prayer version that St. Mark's used on Sunday, September 4 - "Our Father in heaven...." is published alongside the more familiar version - "Our Father, who art in heaven...."  in the last 3 Lutheran worship books - the green "Lutheran Book of Worship", the blue "With One Voice", and in the current cranberry "Evangelical Lutheran Worship" book in the pews.
