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.
for more info and to sign up.

A Note from the Flower Guild
Our St Mark’s flower guild would love to add a few new members to our team!
The duties are not tough: 1) Once each month or so, each member has an assigned Saturday to stop in and arrange a memorial if we have one, and take a moment to water the indoor and outdoor pots. 2) We work together for a couple of hours before Easter and Christmas to beautify St. Mark’s.
If you are interested, please reach out to Jan Williams (
, 908-565-4174) Thank you!
