At St. Mark, on December 17th. We hand-made Christmas Cards to be distributed to the residents of Heather Hill Care Communities. It has been a long-standing Lutheran tradition for congregations to support their local nursing home and to bring the love of Christ to folks who are often lonely and can feel forgotten. All the materials were provided to make beautiful cards. Youngsters and oldsters participated. Special thanks to Marilyn Meyerholt, for organizing and providing the materials.
December 17 from 2-4pm. St. Mark Fellowship Hall 11900 Chillicothe Rd, Chesterland, OH 44026 We will be making Christmas cards for the residents of Heather Hill. All are invited to attend, Parents are encouraged to bring their kids. We’ll ensure that we have people who can help them, so the parents can either stay or leave their children
