Advent Mid-Week Services

posted Nov 21, 2016, 12:22 PM by Stan Suther

Each Wednesday during Advent, beginning Nov. 30th, at 6:30 p.m. we will have worship with Holden Evening Prayer. On December 21st, the longest night and darkest day of the year, our Blue Christmas Evening Prayer will provide a time of solace for anyone who struggles with the holidays, when grief, loneliness or loss are magnified.

Angel Tree

posted Nov 16, 2016, 8:36 AM by Stan Suther

Are you interested in helping a child in need this Christmas? A child that lives right here in Mooresville? If you are, please take one or more of the angels from the Angel Tree in the Narthex. The tree will be up November 13th. We are providing gifts for 50 children from South Elementary school this year! This year we will again have 3 Angels per child. We have color coded them as follows:
  • RED ANGEL - GIRLS CLOTHES

  • BLUE ANGEL - BOYS CLOTHES

  • YELLOW ANGEL - EDUCATIONAL

  • GREEN ANGEL - TOY

  • WHITE ANGEL – New this year we have attached a white angle to the colored angels. Please add your phone number to this angel, tear it off and leave it in the basket provided.

For example if you just want to buy a toy you will look for the Green Angels. Buy the suggested gift for your boy or girl (the age and size of the child are on the angel), wrap the gift for Christmas, and securely attach the angel to the outside, and return your gift back to the Angel Tree by December 4th. Your help will be much appreciated!

Holiday Meals

posted Nov 16, 2016, 8:30 AM by Stan Suther   [ updated Nov 16, 2016, 8:30 AM ]

As the Advent and Christmas Season approach, please remember our annual collection of funds for Food Lion gift cards to be given to deserving families in our area. We first look to our own congregation for ways to use these gift cards. 

Our secondary Holiday Meals goal will be to provide the families we are now assisting at Parkview through the Back Pack Meals Ministry with $25 Food Lion gift cards in December.  In this way we are able to share the many blessings given to us by God with those children and families so much less fortunate.  Contributions in any amount may be made beginning November 6th, and by December 4th. Make your check out to St. Mark’s and mark your check and/or envelope HOLIDAY MEALS. 

Acknowledgement cards that can be inserted in a greeting card or enclosed with a gift will be available in the Narthex and side hallway.  These cards make your contribution a special gift in honor of a family member, co-worker, boss, or friend.   This lets the person being honored know where the money you gave went and that it was given in his/her honor and how it will be used to benefit others.  What a wonderful way to honor someone dear to you.

Watch for updates each week in the bulletin.  For additional information, contact Marilyn Boardman at 704-663-7156 or marilynb203@gmail.com

Habitat for Humanity News

Our Towns Habitat has brought the Mooresville Faith Coalition back together to help with two more houses on Burke Circle!  If you recall, last year 6 local churches, including St. Mark’s helped sponsor and build a home.  This year, the homes already have financing and they need assistance with the build.  Our Towns Habitat has been very appreciative of our help with Habitat in the past and invites our assistance again. 
  • Our second workday to get a group from St. Marks to go work on the houses will be January 7th (framing).  A sign-up sheet is in the Narthex for those interested.

ADVENT & CHRISTMAS MUSIC, IT'S NOT TOO LATE...

posted Nov 8, 2016, 10:55 AM by Stan Suther   [ updated Nov 8, 2016, 10:59 AM ]

Join Chancel Choir to sing during Advent and Christmas. We've begun rehearsing music for the season, but it's not too late to sing with us. ALL singers are always welcome to join with us, but this is a great opportunity to share your gift of music with a minimum time commitment as we watch and wait for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Chancel Choir rehearsals are on Wednesdays at 7:15. Anyone interested, please let me know so I can have music ready for you.

Office: 704-664-5474, Ext 213; Email: robbietpearson@saintmarkslutheran.com.
