We believe that Jesus Christ came to reveal the fullness of God's love for us, and we continue to celebrate that love through worship, service, and community.
Our church offers a wide range of ministry opportunities. Whether you'd like to learn more, pray more, or serve more, we have a ministry for you.
Making an offering of your financial resources is an integral part of what it means to be a Christian. We have a variety of ways to make it easy to support our church.

As fall is underway, it is once again time to consider our personal stewardship and service to God and how we will continue to share the gifts that He has already given us all. We each have the capacity to serve in so many ways, not only financially, but through our actions. Inspired by Christ, our volunteers make up the heart of St. Mark’s—by “Loving, Serving, Sharing God’s Grace” every day we spread His Word and do His work.
During the third week of September, we will mail out the 2019 Giving Commitment Cards and the Time and Talent surveys. We ask our congregation to prayerfully consider how each one of us can love, serve and share God’s grace. Please return completed cards and surveys to the church office, or through the offering plate as soon as possible.
Beginning SEPTEMBER 23rd, children, youth and adult Sunday School classes will begin meeting on a weekly basis! This year, we are excited to be studying The Story across all generations with Sunday morning and mid-week meeting options open to St. Mark’s and the greater Mooresville community! We hope you will join us for this unique Bible study and invite a friend!

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE
Monday, September 24th ~ 3:30 - 8:00 p.m. ~ Family Life Center
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and a reminder of the impact American Red Cross blood and platelet donors have on the lives of children fighting for their lives. According to the National Cancer Institute, more than 15,000 children and young people under the age of 19 in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer every year. Many of these children require blood products as part of their treatment. Please consider donating blood to ensure ALL patients, including children with cancer, are able to receive the blood products they need! Sign-up online at www.redcross.com
Power in the BLOOD . . . You can put the power of faith into action and help save a life.
Food for Days
Let’s get a JUMP START on supporting our Backpack children at Park View School. When school ended in June we were feeding 103 children. St. Mark’s supported 67 children.
The need is as great or greater than eight years ago when the program began. Social ministry depends on the caring hearts of our congregation to support FOOD FOR DAYS MINISTRY and other programs that we support. We have heard many stories of how the children depend on this food to get through the weekend. This problem is not going away. In Iredell County we have over 400 students that have NO ADDRESS. We have a school that has 30 students waiting to receive food but no sponsors for them.
COST FOR ONE CHILD FOR SCHOOL YEAR $250.00 OR ANY AMOUNT YOUR HEART DICTATES
Please keep this ministry in your hearts and minds and pray for these children and the children all over the nation that need assistance.
You may use a pew envelope indicating FOOD FOR DAYS on the envelope and on your check.
DID YOU KNOW THAT SAINT MARK’S HAS CHURCH MICE????? These “mice” are very special people that are secretly assigned a St. Mark’s college student or military personnel to remember with prayer, notes and small gifts throughout the school year. As mice, I know we are all quite busy. This project does not take much time or money. If you are interested in joining our colony of church mice this year or would just like more information, please email or call Sandie Lown at Sandielown1@gmail.com or 704-658-7639. To assure all students/military personnel receive something, we will also be sending out small quarterly packages from the colony, which we will assemble together.
PARENTS OF COLLEGE STUDENTS AND MILITARY PERSONNEL - Please email or call Sandie Lown at email@example.com or 704-658-7639 with your student/military member’s email and physical addresses and where they are studying or stationed so that they can be assigned a “church mouse” for this school year before October 1, 2018.
FOOD FOR DAYS DONATIONS
Please feel free to donate any food on the list at any time, this is a great help in deferring the cost of the program. Thanks again for your generosity. Collection box is located in the side hallway.
September ~ Pop Tarts
October ~ Complete Meals
FOOD FOR DAYS VOLUNTEERS - Would you like to be involved in a community outreach program that requires minimal time commitment but has a large impact on children in our area.
We pack individual bags of food, for in need children, to take home for the weekends. This outreach program coincides with the children's school year, as the food distribution is through their respective school. We begin packing in late September and finish with the ending of the school year in June. We meet once a week on Thursday morning at the First Baptist Church, 150 South Church Street, Mooresville.
Please prayerfully consider being a volunteer. Depending on the number of volunteers, your commitment throughout the school would be one Thursday morning a month from 8:15 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. We feel this is a great way to help our local children and to have fun getting to know our fellow church members. If you are interested in helping please call or email John & Harriet Kline # 704-360-4505; email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hands are busy getting ready for fall & winter needs. We need help with cutting, tracing, folding, crocheting, sewing, laughing, fellowship and your company! I couldn’t list all the different ways your presence would & could help! Many items that are made are given to families’ right here Mooresville!
We meet on Tuesdays at 12:30 in the FLC. More information will be coming soon from the night group that meets. We designate one Tuesday a month to the Pad Project! The next Pad Project day will be September 11th. Thank you for your prayers & encouragement as we continue to help & love those less fortunate.

ASSISTIVE LISTENING DEVICES - are now available in the Narthex. If you're having trouble hearing the sermon or the music during worship each week please ask one of the ushers for an Assistive Listening Device. They will be able to answer questions and ensure you're comfortable using the device. Worship and Music Committee strives to ensure that everyone has a positive worship experience each week, and one of the ways we can help is by providing Assistive Listening Devices for those who need it. Look for signs in the Narthex.
