Volunteers are the heart of St. Mark Presbyterian Church . We have on-going volunteer opportunities such as: ushers and greeters, Sunday school teachers for adult and children’s classes, Caregiving and Fellowship activities, Stephen Ministry, and more.

In addition to these on-going volunteer opportunities, St. Mark Presbyterian has special events at our church and special work days out in the community that give you an opportunity to share your time and talents. Please take a moment to review these opportunities that are listed below. We are confident that you will find an opportunity that matches your time, talent and interests. Check back often as Volunteer Opportunities will be updated as new items are added to our ministries.

All volunteers need to read and acknowledge the St. Mark Volunteer Policies. These Policies are found on the Volunteer Policies page.

Easter Lilies: The lily is mentioned frequently throughout the Bible and serves today as a beautiful reminder of the significance of the Easter season. Easter lilies grace homes and churches each spring as a symbol of purity, joy, hope and life. Please order one or more lilies to brighten your home. Consider ordering a plant to be delivered to a homebound member as a tangible reminder of their spiritual connection to St. Mark. Order forms can be found by the flower chart on the easel in the pastors’ office hallway. The cost is $7.50 per plant and the lilies are sourced from a locally owned greenhouse. Any question, please contact flower committee chair Pat Eisenberg or the church office (636-394-2233)

Starting in a coffee shop worshipping community in Dallas, Capes4Kids has grown into its own superpower. Our Youth will be cutting and sewing capes to be distributed to both Cardinal Glennon and Children’s hospitals, to provide support to children needing it in a time of illness. We would love your help! You can help by:
– Seamstresses with at least one yard of cotton, polycotton, or fleece material or thread to donate would be appreciated!
– Any monetary donation would also be welcomed!
