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.

9:30-noon,weather permitting, including this Saturday, 6/29. Our work sessions next week are Monday 4-5:30pm and Wednesday, 9:30-11:30am.
Now that school has wrapped up for the year,
we would love to have our teens and young adults
join in! And this is a St Mark’s leadership week, so let’s make it a great turn-out for fun fellowship!
Remember to wear gloves, sunscreen and bug spray. Please save your coffee grinds and eggshells and bring them to the garden or drop them in the church kitchen for use in our compost. Great source of nutrients for our plants, and great kid’s project!
Blood Drive at St. Mark's - July 21st - Save the Date
Blood supplies are low and you can do something to help. Plan on donating blood here at St. Marks on 7/21! The Red Cross will be here from 9am-2pm and a signup link will be available soon.
A Note from Bill & Lauran Corson
Hello all! As you likely know we are moving our primary residence to Woodstock VT. BUT will still be running LONJ here in NJ. To do that it is likely that we will need to keep an apartment around here in the general area. Rather than go about with realtors and brokers we thought we might ask all our friends if they know of a friend renting a private apartment with an opening in a few months from now. If you have any ideas, please share them with us. We'll be visiting St Marks regularly of course.
