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.

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
to sign up.
As one of our most valued Blood Program Leaders, The Red Cross asks for your help in a time of emergency need. Right now, blood donations are leaving the shelves faster than they're coming in.
That means patients are at risk for delayed surgeries or treatment. Don't wait until the letters A, B and O are completely missing from the hospital blood bank shelves, the time to act is now. You can help by filling the
by scheduling your lifesaving appointments today!
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.

A Note from Dawn & Chuck Knill
As many of you already know, our daughter, Kaitlynn, will be getting married here at St. Mark's on Friday, August 9th at 6 PM. St. Mark's and all of you are like our family. We would like to be sure you all know how much we would love to have you join in the celebration at the church on that day.
