St. Mark Lutheran Church,
Tucker, Georgia

Donates to
Eritrean Schools for the Deaf

null

St. Mark Lutheran Church in Tucker, Georgia has donated $1,585 in Sunday School offerings from April through September 2017 to the only two Schools for the Deaf in Eritrea. This was a very special mission for St. Mark, as their Pastor Hiruy Gebremichael taught at these schools for seven years before coming to the United States. These two schools located in Asmara and Keren in Eritrea are the only places where the hearing impaired can hear the Word of God in their country. Every morning these students have devotions, led by their teachers, and every Sunday they have worship. These are the first such schools in east Africa and have been a blessing for many since 1956. St. Mark is grateful to 
God for the opportunity to assist in reaching the hearing impaired of Eritrea.

Many of St. Mark’s Sunday School children’s parents have come from Eritrea. St. Mark was blessed to have two of those parents travelling to Eritrea within the past six months,  and they were able to personally deliver the donations. In a letter from the Asmara School for the Deaf after the first donation, the school stated they would use the money to provide clothes and shoes to their needy children. St. Mark is happy to be able to help and bring happiness to these children. 

Members of St. Mark have designated their Sunday School quarterly offerings be given to mission projects around the world with total contributions over the past five years of over $12,000.  Some of the specific designated missions have included Heifer International, North Atlanta Circuit Outreach, LCMS Disaster/Hurricane Relief, and Lutheran Church Charities’ Comfort Dogs.  These projects have provided unique opportunities for children (and adults) to learn what Jesus meant when He said, “Inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto Me”.

Thank you to all who came out and walked with us, and to all who supported us in our effort to raise money for Georgia's hungry. 

Despite severe thunderstorms and high winds being in the forecast, we had not a drop of rain. It must have been all those churches praying for good weather! 

Our St. Mark team raised $1,387.00 to fight hunger! Way to Go!!

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL!

St. Mark will hold this year’s Vacation Bible School June 4-8 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the church.  The theme is “Shipwrecked – Rescued by Jesus”.  We will learn how Jesus takes care of us when we are lonely, worry, struggle, do wrong, and feel powerless.  Kids will participate in Bible Discovery, Imagination Station, Ship Rec Games, and Tropical Treats.   Music will help us ask God to “Never Let Go of Me”, to think of the “Million Reasons” we have to thank God every day, and to remember God is always there for us so we “Won’t Worry About a Thing”.

Mission offerings will be collected to help Operation Kid-to-Kid as they partner with World Vision to provide Haitian families with drought-tolerant seeds – enough to grow food for the entire family, with additional crops to sell in community markets.  Donations also help farmers learn sustainable farming practices, contribute toward reforestation, and help nourish entire communities for years to come!

Children ages 4 through fifth grade are welcome to attend VBS.  Parents are also welcome to visit and sit in on our Sail Away Sendoff at 8:20 each evening.  Please call the church office at 770 938-4546 to register by May 25.  We look forward to having fun together as we learn more about how Jesus rescues us!

Activity Report:

Youth night-April:  We had 4 students in attendance on April 21st .  The students selected and prepared their skits for the Talent Show. The meal was provided by Steve and Julie Donaldson.    

Talent Show fundraiser:  Julie, Nardos, Leslie and Ms. Deb prepared the appetizers while the students setup the fellowship hall, and prepared their skits.  Approximately 60 guests were in attendance for a wonderful evening while our members displayed their talents. Students were very helpful in the serving process.  We collected a total of $850 for the Talent Show.  All expenses were covered by the Thrivent Action Team project.  Together with the Easter breakfast proceeds of $370, a total of $1,220 went into the youth fund in April for National Youth Gathering and future programs.

Future plans:

  • Monthly youth nights will continue with the exception of May as there were already too many events on the calendar.
  • Fundraisers will be occurring frequently this year to raise adequate funds to participate in the 2019 National Youth Gathering in Minneapolis, MN.  We potentially have over 10-15 students eligible to attend YG next year.
  • Students will be performing skits on a regular basis as we have many talented students and received a lot of positive feedback on the one performed at Talent night.
  • A parent meeting will be scheduled this summer after worship service for all parents with students who will be eligible to attend the National Youth Gathering next year in order to establish expectations; spiritual, physical, and financial.

    Special thanks:

Steve & Julie Donaldson for providing dinner at our last Youth night. Steve Donaldson for being our esteemed emcee for the Talent Show, Julie, Leslie and Nardos for helping with preparation, and all the parents for assisting with cleanup.  Thanks to all participants who demonstrated their talent.  Thank you to our members for their continued prayerful & financial support.
