Looking for a Warden: As Les Robling is stepping away from the position of People’s Warden after two years, St. Mark’s will need to fill this post. Diocesan requirements state that a parish MUST have two wardens. Speak to Les or Randy+ for more information.

COLDEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR:  You’d look great on our team! For the next few weeks, I’m investing some of my time fundraising for an event we are involved with – the Coldest Night of the Year.  The Coldest Night of the Year is a walk that raises money for folks in our community who need our help. Some of them hungry, more than a few hurting and regrettably, some who are homeless too. Adults, moms and kids, seniors and youth as well. Once again this year we will be walking for Green Wood Coalition.  Please consider joining our team – St. Mark’s Marchers – and walk with us on Saturday, February 23rd.  Another important way to help is to sponsor those of us who are walking.  Many of you know the work Green Wood Coalition does already and support in so many ways.  You can sponsor by going into the Coldest Night of the Year website, or give a donation through the church.  More information? Contact Ann Smith.
