On Saturday, October 25th, we will be holding our 3rd Annual Fall Craft Show from 10am-3pm and we need volunteers from 8am-4pm. We need volunteers to help set up/pick tables, help cook food and direct traffic. If you are interested in helping out, please see Melissa Hamon. We would appreciate any help in making this event successful for St. Mark’s!
There will be a silent auction and all proceeds will go to the youth scholarship fund. If you would like to contribute to the silent auction, you may donate funds in the form of a check or by donating goods and/or services to the auction. We still have few booth spots available for vendors at our Fall Craft Show on October 25. If you know anyone that might be interested, please have them call the church office. Thank you!

As part of the Kids’ Kingdom unit of study on Holy Communion, youth of all ages, their parents, and the whole parish is invited to attend a Seder Dinner at St. Mark’s on Sunday, October 26 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. A Seder Dinner is the ritual meal which commemorates the events of the Exodus to the Jewish people. In the Christian tradition, the Passover Seder is believed to be when Jesus instituted the Eucharist at the Last Supper. The Seder dinner will offer the very specific items that symbolize the parts of the Exodus story including unleavened bread, lamb shank bone, hard boiled eggs, bitter herbs, haroseth (a mixture of apples, nuts and wine), karpas (parsley), salt water, and wine. Father Bert will lead the program. The Seder Dinner will be a wonderful opportunity for all to learn more about the ritual meal that celebrates not only our tradition of Christ's Last Supper, but our Jewish heritage.
It will be necessary to reserve a place at this dinner due to the usual nature of the food to be prepared. Please sign up on the poster at the back of the church no later than Sunday, October 19. For questions contact Chris Abbott.
