Angel Tree

The Angel Tree is a mission project of St. Mark’s Saints Fellowship group (children in grades 3-5)
Working with Circle of Concern, Saints Fellowship has adopted four families for Christmas. Select an angel from the tree and purchase that gift. All unwrapped gifts are to be returned to St. Mark by Sunday, December 9.

St. Mark Family and Friends Annual Christmas Card Tree

Once again, St. Mark family and friends are invited to put a Christmas card on the tree in the corner of the Narthex. In lieu of sending cards to our church family, the intent of this tradition is that each family would offer what they would spend on postage/cards as a donation to our mission partners. A box for your donations can be found under the Christmas tree as well as hooks to hang your cards. Please make checks, payable to St. Mark Presbyterian Church, noting “MISSION” on the memo line and optionally designate a mission partner as the recipient. If no mission partner is specified, the donation will be split equally across our core mission partners.
