Rally Day Festivities

kick_off_sunday_2011Rally Day is coming Sunday, September 7. On that day, we will have one service outside at 9:30 a.m. This will be followed by coffee and fellowship, games and service opportunities, and burgers and hot dogs.

Also, Rally Day is a day we bless the animals so you are invited to bring your pets, or pictures of your pets, or even your favorite stuffed animal. An “Animal Show” will be part of the festivities as well.

Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the ELCA has declared this day as “God’s work. Our hands” Sunday where we are encouraged to participate in helping our community. Saint Mark will serve Kairos Community Lunch on that day possibly outdoors. You are welcome to help following all the Rally Day activities.

You can be involved in a number of ways: set up for worship at 8:00 a.m., helping with Kairos Community Lunch or taking down following the meal. Sign up is in the narthex. Saint Mark returns to two services at 8:30am and 11:00am beginning September 14.

June 8th is Pentecost, and We are All Fired Up!

flameAfter the 9:30 service on Pentecost, plan to stick around for the fun! We will have our own : see renovations to the Library, find out where the Youth Room and Child Development Center classrooms are, check out where LWR quilt and Backpack Buddies ministries happen!

Meanwhile, there will be a supervised play group for the children, a Ping Pong tourney, knitting and various other groups gathering (watch for more details). At 11:30 a.m., we’ll gather in the fellowship hall, for a chili cook-off. Taste, and vote for, best, hottest, most flavorful, etc.! If you have a recipe you’ve been waiting to try, Pentecost is the time to get “All Fired Up!” (You can add to the fun by wearing RED!)
