Mitten Tree Donations
In the generous tradition of giving at St. Mark’s, a tree will be placed in the narthex for collection of cold weather items. Help us keep some kids warm this year by decorating our tree with mittens, scarves, hats, and new/gently used coats. All donations to the tree must be brought in by December 17th.
Chrismons are symbols from Christian history which refer to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Chrismons are made in white and gold to symbolize the purity and perfection, the majesty and glory of the Son of God. Each year, beginning in 1975, all children of St. Mark’s have received a different Chrismon as a gift from the church. Made by the ladies of the church, the Chrismons are for each child ages birth through college.
This Year's Chrismon: Cross in Eternity
Once in history, God, through His Son, Jesus, made Himself know to man and provided for man’s eternal salvation. By the inspiration of the Spirit of God, every person can walk with God eternally. Let all who believe and accept the one
sacrifice that was made for all time.
