Weekly Announcements, May 28, 2023

Mark Your Calendars: a Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser for Dawn has been scheduled for Friday, June 2nd , here at St. Mark from 4-8:00pm. This event is being organized by Dawn’s friends at Deepwood Center in Mentor.

Lutherans in the World: June 11th is the next LITW. The title/topic is “Love Your Enemies?” At a time when hostility and violence towards Christians is becoming more common, how are we to respond? Our Lord Jesus has quite a bit to say about this, and we will examine His teaching and example together on Sunday, June 11th, at 6:00 p.m.

Meet Our New Members: next Sunday, June 4, at either service. They plan to be here at the end of the 8:00 am service to be introduced and then to take part in a ceremony during the 10:15 a.m. service. There are ten of them in all, and the group includes three who have been baptized at St. Mark recently and two joining us by Confirmation. The rest are joining either by transfer or by profession of faith. Reach out and try to get to know them!

Graduates: The office is looking for names of students who will be graduating this year. Please send names, where they are graduating from and their plans for the future.

Coffee anyone?: Unfortunately our large coffee maker is broken and it has been determined that it is most cost-effective to replace it rather than repair it. To help defray the cost, you can place your donation in ThePigon the counter in Fellowship Hall.

This‘n’That Sale:Yes, we’re having a rummage sale this year! The information for this year’s This ‘n’ That sale is a little different from past years. Copies of the needed info are on the table in the narthex. Please help yourself to a copy! Contact Lori Cudnik or Gayle Fecsik for more information.

Mailboxes:The office and newsletter staff asks that all members periodically check your mailboxes and empty them. You never know what good news you will find there.

Medical Mission Trip: Dr Stephen Repas will be representing Medicine in Mission on a mission trip to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic from June 3-11. Dr Repas along with a team of 16 medical students from Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine will work with Latin LCMS Churches and Pastors to serve the community through teaching and demonstrating first responder emergency techniques. Each person will be taking one checked bag each containing information packets and first aid kits. We are asking for monetary donations or Thrivent Action cards to defray the cost of bringing these items into the country. Contact Jackie Rychel if you can help.

Recycling Bins A reminder that the recycling bins in the upper parking lot are for paper and cardboard only. Please do not put anything else in there. Also, please break down any cardboard boxes.

LWML Newsletter:The summer edition of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League OhioDistrictEdition(ODE) has arrived and is on the Women’s League table near Fellowship Hall. It’s full of information about what’s happening in the District, news you can use to get or send information within LWML, and a thoughtful article by Rev. Everette Greene, the Junior Pastoral Counselor for the District.
