Choir: 

Choir Sunday is every month on the fourth Sunday of the Month.  If you would like to be part of the choir, please contact Ben or the church office. Practice is the two Thursday's before that Sunday at 7PM.


Fundraiser for Seminary Classes: 

MaryAnn Farnsworth has enrolled in a certification program at Gettysburg Seminary (United Seminary) in Faith Formation.  This is a nine month course during which time she will spend one weekend a month in intensive classes and then complete readings, papers and projects in between class weekends.  We hope that she will bring fresh ideas back to St. Mark’s that will help us grow and reach out to kids, adults and seniors in our ministries.

 

In support of MaryAnn’s studies, we will hold a fundraiser on Sunday, October 21st after worship.  Nathan Farnsworth will be making his famous REAL Belgium Waffles with us.  These are real Belgium waffles made from dough (not batter) with special Pearl Sugar imported from Belgium.  Once you have one of these waffles, you will never want a batter a waffle again.  Support MaryAnn in her seminary studies by grabbing a hot Belgium waffle on your way out and making a free will donation to help pay her seminary tuition.  Nathan and Matthew will also be selling some of our honey collected this summer from the hives at our farm.  Your support will be greatly appreciated.  



St. Mark’s has been contacted by the Birdsboro Food Pantry asking us to participate in an ongoing collection of laundry detergent to help the more than 80 families served by the Pantry. A laundry basket can be found in the narthex of the church to place your purchases of laundry detergent and it will be taken to the Birdsboro Food Pantry as the basket fills up. As you shop for your household supplies, please consider purchasing an additional bottle or box of detergent to help the needy families of Birdsboro. 



BOYER’S FOOD MARKET CARING AND SHARING KEY TAGS are available in the narthex of the church. If you present the key tag during checkout Boyer’s will give a 1% rebate to St. Mark’s. The money the church receives will go into the Capital Improvement Fund.



MICHAEL'S RESTAURANT on Route 422 in Douglassville will give us a percentage of your bill.  When it is time to pay just tell the cashier you are a member of St Mark’s in Birdsboro.  What a world, you enjoy your meal and help St Mark’s at the same time.
