Women of the ELCA Fall Gathering

posted Oct 7, 2014, 8:09 PM by Robert Rhyne

St. Mark's will be hosting the Alexander-Iredell Fall Gathering of the WELCA on Saturday, October 11th. The Bible Study will be "Women and Justice" and will be presented by our NC WELCA Board Liaison, Jane Cadwallader. The program will begin at 9:00 a.m. and the cost to register is $5.00 which includes lunch.

As we are hosting the event, there is also a need for some volunteers at the registration table, in the kitchen and to bake cakes for dessert. A flyer with more details about the event and sign-up sheets are in the Narthex and on the FLC bulletin board. Registration deadline is October 3rd. Contact Lorri Monterose if you have any questions about the Gathering.

On Saturday, October 25th from 9:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m., St Mark’s will host a plant exchange for members of the church and community. This will be a great opportunity to share and thin plants from your yard, as well as collect new ones. If you plan to share plants, it is not too late to sign up in the narthex or FLC or contact Marsha Rhyne at  mmrhyne21@gmail.com or 704-488-6914.

A table will be provided for each person in the FLC parking lot. Please label plants with names and be ready for exchange by 9:00 a.m. Coffee and pastries will be served. Let's spread God's creations throughout the community!

Join us at the Holy Grounds...

New Adult Mission Opportunity

posted May 21, 2014, 6:54 PM by Robert Rhyne   [ updated May 21, 2014, 7:07 PM ]

We have exciting news about an adult mission to help rebuild from Hurricane Sandy. Almost two years after the storm, much work still needs to be done. St. Mark’s will be sending a team from July 7th to July 12th to work with Samaritan’s Purse in Toms River, NJ.

These rebuilding trips to disaster areas are as rewarding as anything you will ever do in your life. They are spiritually fulfilling as well. If you have been seeking a new way to serve the Lord, consider this trip a blessed opportunity. Don’t for a moment consider that you may not be qualified. Samaritan’s Purse is outstanding at using whatever each team member has to offer. Your efforts will be magnified. If you have any interest in this trip, contact Robert Rhyne asap (arrhyneiii@gmail.com or 704-699-5661).
