The Messenger is a monthly e-newsletter. Find out about worship for 

the month; keep up to date with St. Mark's committees and ministries; 

check the calendar for events; find out when your are scheduled to help 

or sponsor; and much, much more! Each issue for the coming month is available on the last Sunday of the previous month. There are black and white printed copies available in the narthex and under the outside mailbox.  

The SMLC Weekly is an e-mail that is sent Thursday afternoon to those who subscribe to it highlighting the worship for the following Sunday. It will also contain news about the life of the congregation and will serve as a way to connect with the church if you cannot make worship on a Sunday. 

If you or your friends and family would like to be added to our electronic mailing list for either or both newsletters, please send the e-mail address(es) to the church office or Pastor Jim. These addresses will not appear on the mailings to assist in confidentiality.

Any children from the community ages 4 to 12 years are welcome.
