There's a place for you in St. Mark's photo directory!


St. Mark’s is getting ready to create a new photo directory, and we need everyone to help make it complete! We have chosen to partner with Lifetouch for professional photography that will connect our members and put names with the many faces here at St. Mark's. Lifetouch will take photographs of our families starting Oct. 14. Both daytime and evening appointments are available. Each family photographed will receive a free 8x10 portrait and a printed directory. Schedule your portrait session today!

'All In' four-week study with Pastor John Lacey


All In: You Are One Decision Away from a Totally Different Life
Wednesdays through October 1, 2014 | 6:30-7:30 p.m. | Bliss Chapel

The Gospel costs nothing. You can't earn it or buy it. It can only be received as a free gift, compliments of God's grace. It doesn't cost anything, but it demands everything. It demands that we go "all in," a term that simply means placing all that you have into God's hands. The message of All In is simple: If Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not Lord at all. It's all or nothing. It's now or never. Kneeling at the foot of the cross of Christ and surrendering to His Lordship is a radical act of dethroning yourself and enthroning Christ as King. It's also an act of disowning yourself. Nothing belongs to you. Not even you. Join Pastor John for this life changing study as we go "all in!"

Helping Hands Ministry has emerged as an outgrowth of our growing men's group, with the mission of assisting others in need of handyman services they are unable to perform themselves. These projects may occasionally require an expenditure for supplies, so these Good Samaritans have started a fund to support these needs. The men will be fundraising by grilling hamburgers and hot dogs with all the fixin's, along with baked beans, autumn greens salad, chips, and homemade cookies and bars for dessert on Oct. 8. Tickets will be available on Sundays starting Sept. 28, and are $7 per person, and $3 for children under age 12, or $20 max per family (2 adults and children from same household).

If you could benefit from assistance from the men of the Helping Hands Ministry, or if you're interested in offering your services, please contact Gayle Schroeder, Director of Adult Ministry, at 402-489-8885, ext. 118 for more information.
