May Mission of the Month:
Community Resource Center (CRC) Clean-up
Sunday, May 19th @ 12:30 pm

Volunteers from St. Mark will be serving the community by cleaning up the interior and exterior of the Encinitas CRC location and checking expiration dates of food in the food store. We have received a Thrivent grant with “Live Generously” T-shirts, snacks and cleaning supplies. Last year we had good participation and the CRC was most appreciative of our efforts. No monetary donations are required, just bring your enthusiasm! A sign-up sheet with more details is available in the Welcome Center. Please contact Dave Kendall at for information.

Volunteers Needed

Volunteers are needed to help with Sunday morning refreshments. If you can help with setting up treats, bringing something to share, or clean up, please see Carol Burks after church.
