Walking for Hunger

Led and organized by two of our members, St. Mark/The Place coordinated a walking fundraising effort to help fill the St. Vincent de Paul tub with money and food. The event took place following worship on Sunday, Oct. 18, in partnership with Cornerstone City Church. The event raised $608 and earned St. Vincent de Paul a $500 donation from the Northeast Thrivent Member Network.

Feeding Those in Need

St. Mark Lutheran Church exceeded expectations on Oct. 17, when it announced that it had collected 600 food items – 100 more than the original goal – to support St. Vincent de Gaul's (SVDG) Soup Kitchen. Volunteers gathered at the church to prep all the items for delivery. The church regularly assists the SVDG, including through multiple ministries such as its Sunday Grab-and-Go meal packing and distribution events that align with all state health and safety guidance.

Concert Benefits Area Musicians

Committed to providing excellence in music throughout the year, St. Mark Lutheran Church is now taking its passion for music and service to help area musicians through its new Virtual Concert Series on YouTube. Led by distinguished musician and the church's music director Ian Frenkel, St. Mark's Jazz & Gospel Ensemble kicked off the online series in October. Along with Frenkel, the ensemble features the church's own Mark McCormick on bass and Chris Odell on drums.

 

The inaugural concert also welcomed special guest Robert Tolppi on piano. The church hopes the series helps to raise funds for area musicians whose livelihoods have been deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Donations to support the effort are greatly appreciated. 

The current issue and the last few editions of the e-newsletter can also be found here.
