This month, we look at three separate grants. The first is to develop materials for training church workers as they minister to those suffering from mental illness. The second, Equipping Young Leaders, will help develop projects to help teens and young adults stay connected to the church and grow their faith in Jesus. The third, Set Apart to Serve, is an initiative with the purpose of encouraging young people to become full-time church workers. Christ’s church continues to need church workers for the building up of the kingdom. 

Bring your mite offering to help provide materials and training for church workers, with or without a box, to worship with you on Sunday, April 7. Empty your box into the purple basket on the table just inside the church. Mite donations can also be made online through St. Mark’s e-giving. Empty mite boxes will be available to pick up. THANK YOU!
