VBS at St. Mark's
VBS at St Mark’s this year will be having fun with Superheros! And, we’ll be looking at some of the themes that come out of their stories, and pair them with some of the perennial themes of the Bible.
The camp runs August 12th through August 16th, from 9AM to 12PM.
On Thursday the 15th we will encourage the kids (and volunteers!) to come dressed as their favorite Superhero–so start thinking about that now!
On Friday the 16th we will be going to a trampoline park to celebrate the week that was past. There is a separate charge for this—$20 per child.

Strategic Planning Survey created by
Vision 2020 Task Force
We have been asked to share the Planning Survey with our members.
The Task Force is comprised of resident members, Jen Aaron, Monique Loh, Mahdavi Puppala, Suzanne Tufariello, Faris Jebara, as well as administrator Pat Monaco, municipal clerk Rhonda Pisano, Carol Bianchi, Township Committeewoman Joan Harris, our Director of Parks and Recreation Jen Gander, and IT Director Chris Kyriacou.
This team went out into the community, visiting senior centers and conducting public work sessions at town hall to gather input from the residents to form the survey. The survey can be found on our website by clicking
The survey results will be so much more valuable with the input of the greatest number of residents. It is important to hear from the members of our various faith communities. It takes about 10 minutes-- but compare that to the next ten years, as the survey results will be considered in the township's planning for the next decade!
