Look here for news and opportunities for worship, service and fellowship.
Mark Sunday, May 17th on your calendars! We will worship at Saint Mark’s this year andThe Worship Service with Holy Communion by Intinction will begin at 10:30 a.m. and there will be only one service this Sunday. A special group, the Carolina Style Chorus will lead the service in music and worship. Don’t miss this special performance! A picnic will follow immediately after the service. The service will be on the lawn in front of the church. Please bring lawn chairs or blankets and dress casually. Be ready for corn hole and Kan Jam competitions too!
We ask that everyone bring a large portion of salad, a side dish or dessert. The Evangelism Team will provide grilled chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs. All the condiments, slaw, chili and paper products will also be provided. We will have lemonade, sweet tea and water to drink.
This is a chance for the whole congregation to come together in worship and fellowship. It’s also a chance to ask friends and family to join us in a casual, Christian setting. We are asking members to think about who they can invite to this event and prayerfully consider reaching out to them in advance. This event is also open to anyone in the community – EVERYONE is welcome!
Kids and Adults: Who can I invite? – Oh yeah, I can invite FRANC!
F - Friends
R - Relatives
A - Acquaintances
N - Neighbors
C - Co-workers
If rain appears to be a possibility, the service and picnic will be indoors, so it’s rain or shine! We also need extra hands for this exciting event! Cooks, set-up, take-down and everything in between is needed! If you signed up to help through Time and Talent, please be ready to lend a hand. If you didn’t and can help, please let Pam Core, Laura Breece or Mitch Abraham know.
We look forward to bringing congregation and community together on May 17th. See you there!

The NC Synod's annual Assembly will be held Thursday, May 28 - Saturday, May 30 in Greensboro. St Mark's has the opportunity to send several members of the congregation to the Assembly to act as lay voting members. With Bishop Bolick's pending retirement, this is an important year. In addition to the normal important annual business, the voting members of the Assembly will vote on, and elect, a new Bishop. The Council will be working to designate the church's Assembly attendees in the coming month. We are able to send six members of our congregation (2 male, 2 female, one young adult, one confirmed youth). If you are interested in attending on behalf of St Mark's, please contact Craig Gill.
On Easter Sunday we consecrated a new set of brass Communion vessels.

The pottery wine chalices are given to the glory of God by Don and Judith Fletcher.

Watch the bulletins and future newsletter for all the details!
On February 22nd, we conducted the "Congregational Study for the Call Process" which, for you as a member of St. Mark's, means detailing who we are as a congregation, what we value, and what we hope for in the future. This forum was a great opportunity to present what is important to you and what you hope to see in a new Pastor.
Responses were developed in small groups to the following points:
1) Our most important current ministries are _______;
2) In the next few years, I hope we can _______;
3) Our next pastor should be someone who _______; and
4) It is important for the bishop/staff to know _______.
The responses to the final point will go directly back to the synod office to the bishop’s representative, Kay Conrad. The other responses will form our "Ministry Site Profile" which is used to match our congregation to potential pastoral candidates. The profile will also be used by candidates to decide if they are interested in us! As you can imagine, this profile is vital to attracting the best candidates to our great congregation!
The Soup Suppers during this Lenten Season have been awesome, even inspiring. We've been inspired to get creative. So, take note of the new Recipes link in our sidebar menu. We hope to add many more
