St. Mark’s Ladies Guild Meeting and Mission

christmas card writingDo you need help with writing and addressing your Christmas cards or know someone who could use some help? If so the St. Mark’s Ladies Guild can help. We bring the cards and the stamps, you provide the names and
addresses.

Please call the office 447-7510. Give them your name, address and telephone number. Sometime between November 12 and December 1, a member of the Ladies Guild will contact you to set up a meeting time and place. The Guild member will have a selection of Christmas cards and envelopes to choose from and will work with you to help get the job done.  The first 15 cards are free; any cards over the first 15 are 10 cents each.  Please call today to sign up or discuss the process in detail.

Our Ladies Meeting for November will be on Wednesday the 12th at 6:30pm in the Parish Center.

All are Welcome!

DO YOU KNIT OR CROCHET?

knittingThose who are sick, frightened or dying-and their loved ones-are so appreciative of the Prayer Shawls that are made by volunteers. A group of these gifted people meet every Wednesday from 12:30-1:30pm at the BMC Chapel to pray and use their gifts to comfort others. You are always welcome to join them. Funds are provided for the materials and we love creative patterns as well as familiar ones.

Thanks, also, to the local congregations who share some of their abundance when we run low on our Prayer Shawls. If you are part of one of these groups, know that your generosity is very much appreciated.

For questions, please call Pastoral Care at 413-447-2251.
