Unify in July

posted Jun 23, 2016, 1:52 PM by Stan Suther   [ updated Jul 4, 2016, 8:20 AM ]

Worship and Music is excited to announce that we will "Unify in July" with one worship service at 10:00 a.m. each Sunday in July followed by Coffee Hour and Fellowship at 11:00.

Join us for coffee, lemonade and fellowship following the 10:00 a.m. worship service. The following committees will be hosting each week. Stop by and learn more about each committee.

July 3 ~ Worship & Music                July 10 ~ Church Council

July 17 ~ Social Ministry                 July 24 ~ Christian Education

July 31 ~ Evangelism will host a covered dish lunch to welcome new members.

Pastor Dave is planning an inspirational worship experience and will be preaching on Paul's letter to the Colossians which presents Jesus Christ like no other New Testament letter does. For instance, in chapter one, we'll be reminded that Christ "is the image of the invisible God;" "the firstborn of all creation;" and "all things have been created through him and for him!" Oh come, let us worship him and be unified through him and for him.

We don't often have the opportunity for our whole church family to unite in worship so mark

your calendar for the change in worship time for July and check Pastor Dave's EMails, the bulletin and St. Mark's webpage for additional details.

Volunteer as a Guardian ad Litem

posted Jun 20, 2016, 10:53 AM by Stan Suther   [ updated Jun 20, 2016, 10:55 AM ]

Have you ever read a newspaper story about a child who was abused or neglected and wondered what happens to this child? If a child is lucky, their case is assigned to a volunteer Guardian ad Litem. The first thing the volunteer Guardian ad Litem will do is to get to know the child. They will want to know the child’s needs and wishes. Then they make recommendations to the Court. Each child has different circumstances and wishes. Volunteers are the voice of the child in court. Presently there are 41 children in Iredell waiting for a Guardian ad Litem. The Iredell GAL program needs more volunteers.

The requirement to be a volunteer is to be an adult who desires to help a child in need. Please call 704-832-6621 to volunteer or visit our website at

DID YOU KNOW ??? - The Evangelism Team has stuffed lots of visitor bags with goodies, and placed them around the church and FLC. We are inviting our members to take them to those who might need a church home or deliver to a member who has not been in attendance for awhile for whatever reason. Look for the brightly colored bags in the narthex!
