On Saturday, May 19, St. Mark celebrated 50 years of worshipping in the sanctuary.  A celebratory worship service was held with Rev. Henry Blickhahn giving the sermon.  Reverand Blickhahn served as DCE at St. Mark from 1989 - 1983. 

The service was filled with the sound of celebratory singing.  All church musical groups took part:  the choir, the praise band, the bell choir, and the chime choir all raised voices and instruments in God's praise.  The congregation joined in enthusiastically, singing in both English and Tigrinya.

After the service we had a delicious dinner in the Fellowship Hall, with the meats catered from Café Violette, the potatoes and green beans from Folks, and salads, additional meat dishes, and desserts provided by the members of St. Mark. 

We celebrated the presence of two of our charter members, Marlene Richardson, and Artie Summerlin, as well as a member of one the first confirmation classes, Anne Kunz.

Box tops for Education

by Suzie Mailman

If you buy grocery (and other) products that come with 'Box tops for Education' they are valuable! We have several members who are saving them and then sending the coupons to not only Christian organizations but also many of our local schools. These groups gather them, submit them, and then receive money to purchase supplies of many types. If you are interested in finding out which products have these coupons, use this link to find out:  http://www.boxtops4education.com/earn/ participating-products



2018 Children’s Christmas Program           

Our annual children’s Christmas program will be held on Christmas Eve, December 24, at 6:30 p.m.  Sunday School children will present “Incredible Christmas” from Children’s Ministry.  In this program a mysterious figure known as the Looker-Outer is sent to call a girl named Kim to become a super hero. Although Kim is gifted with amazing powers, she finds it hard to believe an ordinary girl like herself can do anything great.  The Looker-Outer points Kim to the Christmas story and the story of Jesus over and over, showing her that she can do incredible things and teaching her about the incredible gift God gave us in Jesus.

            All Sunday School children are invited to participate and will sing “Away In a Manger”, “Silent Night”, and “Go Tell It On the Mountain”.  The congregation will also be invited to sing several familiar hymns and participate in the candle lighting.  We hope to see everyone there!


Sunday School News

By Ruth Wietbrock, Education Director

This year (beginning September 2) we are starting a Sunday School class for 2 and 3 year olds in the nursery during our Sunday School hour from 11:00-12:00 each Sunday.  Halle Bereket and Danait Issac will lead this class.  Children will hear a Bible story, sing songs, play games, and create crafts.  We look forward to sharing Jesus with these young students!

Lots is going on in St. Mark’s Sunday School!  Please come and take part!

Sunday School mission offerings of $1500 were collected for Heifer International from January through June 2018.  We were able to gift 2 heifers, 1 pig, 1 sheep, 1 goat, 4 flocks of chickens, and 3 flocks of ducks to needy families around the world.  Thank you to all who donated!  We are excited to have helped so many people in this way!

Sunday School mission offerings for July through September 2018 will go to Operation Smile, a medical charity that provides free surgeries for children and young adults in developing countries who are born with cleft lip, cleft palate or other dental and facial conditions.  With just $240 we can provide surgery for one


VBS was held June 4-8, from 6:30-8:30 pm.  Twenty seven children and youth plus fourteen adults participated during the week.  The theme was Shipwrecked – Rescued by Jesus.  We learned that even though we are lonely, worry, struggle, do wrong, and feel powerless, we are rescued by Jesus.  Our daily Bible Buddies helped us remember our Bible points and Bible verses, and kids got to take them home as a special reminder of their week on the island.  We enjoyed seeing “Jim Noland” and his antics in our daily skits, and had fun repairing our torn raft with God Sightings.  Kids and adults enjoyed singing and moving to the fun and catchy music.  They heard the Bible story in the Bible Discovery center, learned how science relates to Jesus in Imagination Station, ate tasty snacks in Tropical Treats, and got to play games – and get wet - during Ship Rec Games.  We collected $164 to help buy drought-resistant seeds for people struggling in Haiti as we partnered with Operation Kid to Kid.  Finally, we got to share what we learned during the June 10th church service as part of VBS Sunday.  We hope everyone there enjoyed it as much as we did!
