Preschool Board needs a new chairperson. If you want to be a part of our preschool continuing in its mission to serve our youngest children, then we could use you! For information on what this role entails, please contact Donna Toth.

This ‘N That Sale We’re on our way to success! The big tent is up and we’re open for business! Feel free to bring your extra, don’t want, can’t use, outdated, and don’t like any more items to us! As long as they are clean and unbroken, we will try to sell them. Please put items in the pavilion and we’ll do the rest! Questions? Contact Gayle Fecsik or Lori Cudnik.

Jewelry Wanted We are now collecting jewelry for the This ‘n That Sale which will take place in September. If you have any jewelry to donate, please leave it in the box marked “Ellen” in the Small Dining Room. The last day to bring jewelry in is Sunday, August 22nd.Questions? Please call Ellen Gilbert.

Service Times The Elders have decided, after much prayer, discussion, and input from the congregation, that starting September 12th the service times will be 8am and 10:15am with an education hour in between.

Please Join Da Crew! What is this? A group of able-bodied folks willing to help move tables and chairs and otherwise assist in setting up or taking down for church events. Please let Bill Tritt know of your interest. How will it work? You will be sent an email or mobile phone message with a need and you volunteer to either set up or take down or otherwise move things about. Contact Bill Tritt to join.

“Carpenter Hands…Christ’s Hands…Our Hands” is the theme of the 28th LWML Northeast Zone Retreat. All ladies are invited to join us at Zion Lutheran Church in Painesville. Check the LWML info area for Retreat poster and packets for this fun-filled, Christ-centered event. Cost is $25 per person. Registration deadline is September 15. Questions? Please contact Beth Christopherson.

Please Remember the Trinity Food Pantry when you shop at the grocery store. Needed items are canned soups, stews or pastas, canned tuna, canned beans, canned fruits and vegetables, boxed macaroni and cheese, peanut butter and jelly.  We are also accepting monetary donations to help the pantry purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.  Make your check out to St. Mark and put “Trinity Food Pantry” in the memo.  

Have You Thought About Serving? We have several opportunities to give back to St. Mark that don’t require any additional time other than what you are already doing – during each worship service we have ushers, greeters, musicians, and worship tech. None of these require any special skills other than a heart for giving. If you would like to learn more about any of these roles, please contact the church office at mail@stmarkchester.org
