community outreach. If you have any experience in the IT world and

Community Nurse Program
Mark’s is working with Love Inc in re-establishing the Birdsboro Community
Nurse program. We are looking for any
Registered Nurses (active or retired) who would be interested in assisting with
the program. See Mary Kilareski for more information.
new group is forming here at St. Mark’s - the Garden Club. Do you enjoy working in the garden - raising
fresh veggies, spending time outdoors?
Do you have some time during the week to help grow some fresh vegetables
for our neighbors at the food pantry?
Please consider joining our Garden Club - come by the garden at any time
and spend as much or as little time as you want - weeding, watering, picking,
nurturing. This week, we took the food
pantry: 10 bags of various lettuces, six
cabbages, three bags of broccoli and a bag of radishes. We hope to continue our support throughout
the summer - but we need some help.
...help St. Mark’s grow and thrive again!
of St. Mark's:
Keep up-to-date with our Church Committees & Groups
Katie Ladies. This group is open to all
women of the congregation and will highlight fellowship, service and growth as
a group. We all know that Katie Luther
was a strong influence on the life and work of Martin Luther. Being a former nun, Katie’s influence didn’t
end with home life but was also quite significant in theology and service as
Bible Study Group:
The weekly Bible Study Hour meets in the Parlor beginning at 11:00 am. Each week the group will gather to read, study and discuss the Gospel reading for the coming Sunday. The study group will last no longer than one hour. You do not need to be a bible expert or academic scholar to be a part of this group. It is designed for the average Joe who just wants to learn more about the Gospel through discussion and dialog. The big question for each week will be, “what does this Gospel mean to me, today?” Bring your favorite bible with you or use one from the parlor. Snacks and refreshments will be provided each week.
Visits from Pastor Jim If you would like a visit from Pastor Jim, please give him a call in the office or on his cell phone (610-246-4278) so he can put you on his calendar.
Musicians and Singers
Do you sing? Do you
play a musical instrument (piano, french horn, trumpet, sax, guitar)?
Would you be willing to share your talent with the congregation for special events. The Worship and Music committee is looking for individuals to share their
talents at special services. If you are
willing to perform a prelude, please contact Pastor Jim.
Men’s Ministry Group -
Bier, Brats and Bible (BB&B) Klub. The
BB&B was started as a way to get the men of Lutheran Congregations engaged
in congregational life and service to the church and community and to give the
men a support system of fellow Lutheran men of faith. The group meets the
third Monday of each month at a member’s home, a restaurant or one of the
churches for fellowship, meal, prayer and activities planning. In the
past, the group has supported homeless vets, helped a veteran with PTSD move
into a new home, honored local law enforcement, provided meals for senior
citizens, supported youth group activities, provided financial support to the
Wittenberg, Germany English Ministries and even did some yard work at the synod
office. Please see Pastor Jim if you have any questions.
