What's Happening

Look here for news and opportunities for worship, service and fellowship.

Full Plate- No Soup

posted by Stan Suther

Please note that St. Mark’s will not hold the Soup Suppers before the Sunday evening Lenten services this year. There are many other fellowship activities in the church during this busy time, so it was decided by the Church Council to hold off on three additional suppers this year.

Don’t let this stop you from attending the Sunday Evening Lenten services beginning at 6:15pm on 2/14, 2/28 and 3/13. Also, we encourage you to participate in the Meet and Greet on Saturday, Feb 20 from 2-5pm where you can meet our Preferred Candidate. On Sunday, Feb 21, please attend worship and vote on our Preferred Candidate (at 9:40am), enjoy our Youth Sunday worship service, and support our Senior Lyncs at the Youth Spaghetti Lunch. Take-out or dine-in meals are available between services or after the late service.

Thanks for your understanding and we hope to see you at the services and events in February and March!

Easter Meal Cards

As the Lenten and Easter Season approach, please share your joy of this Season and what it means to you by giving a $25.00 Gift Card.

First, we look at our own congregation for ways to use these gift cards.  Our secondary goal will be to provide as many children of in need families at Park View Elementary School with a $25.00 Food Lion Gift Card for their Easter Meal.  Contributions in any amount are now being accepted. Make your check out to St. Mark’s and indicate on your check and envelope EASTER HOLIDAY MEALS.  The last date for this project is March 20th due to Spring Break starting on March 25th. For additional information, contact Marilyn Boardman at 704-663-7156 or marilynb203@gmail.com.  Open the window of your heart and let your light and love shine through. The happiness you share with others will circulate back to you.    Social Ministry

WELCA Service Project @ Valentine's Breakfast

posted Feb 9, 2016, 8:55 AM by Stan Suther

St. Mark's Women of the ELCA will be offering a service project in conjunction with Social Ministry immediately following the Valentine's Breakfast on Sat, Feb. 13th.  We decided to take advantage of our time together and expand our horizons to include serving others.  We will be making fringed fleece scarves as our service project.  Many of you helped in making over 10 dozen scarves that were donated to Living Waters Lutheran Church in Cherokee.  The scarves that we make after the Valentine's Breakfast will stay close to home.  Our goal is to make (40) scarves and they will be placed on the telephone poles in downtown Mooresville.  The scarves will have a tag that says to please take one if you are cold and in need of a scarf to keep warm. 

All of the materials (fleece & yarn) are being provided by Patty Schmid with Social Ministry.  The fleece will be pre-cut to length to make our job even easier.  We will need volunteers to cut yarn into lengths for the fringe, and we'll need women to knot the fringe to make the scarves.  If you haven't made the fringed scarves previously, we'll teach you how!  It's a very simple craft that anyone can master in just a few minutes! 

Come join us as we extend the fun and fellowship of the Valentine's Breakfast to include serving others by making warm fleece scarves to distribute to those less fortunate here in Mooresville.  Bring a friend to the breakfast and then join us immediately following for the WELCA and Social Ministry service project!  Please prayerfully consider supporting this valuable ministry.  Questions?  Contact Lorri Monterose or Patty Schmid.

Bishop Tim Smith Visit

Our Bishop, Rev. Tim Smith, visited us on Sunday, January 31st, when he led both services and conducted a Q & A session in the Family Life Center between services.  We're happy to have such wise and friendly leadership in our ELCA synod. He even good-naturedly agreed to wear on of our recently made scarves created in NC State colors in spite of his Tarheel background!

Hanging Scarves for Those in Need

posted Feb 1, 2016, 9:27 AM by Stan Suther

St. Mark's members recently produced many warm scarves for those in need.  One great work for them was to hang them in the downtown area with notes attached offering them to anyone who needs them, and inviting them to worship with us. Look for them on the light poles downtown and near the soup kitchen.
