"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” (Matthew 18:20, NRSV)
The Outreach Committee will be putting together items for families leaving Safe Berks to take with them once safe housing is found. Items will include: dishpan, dish towels and cloths, drying pad, hot pads, table settings for 4, silverware, dish soap. Place settings have been donated from the VFW and Fabric ministry will provide dish cloths. Please consider donating any of the other items to these families in need. BB&B is providing meals to Safe Berks through October.
Congregation Video Projects
The St. Mark's technology committee is working on several video projects and they need your help. We are going to produce two videos - one of the Lord's Prayer and one of the Sunday Morning Confession. We need you to video tape yourself and members of your household reciting both prayers (you can use your bulletin for the words) and then send those videos to the church at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also be taking clips of people reciting these prayers as we can.
Birdsboro Food Pantry
The Food Pantry will continue to host their drive-thru food distribution on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month at St. Mark's from 4:30pm to 6:30pm. This ministry is a part of Hopewell Love Inc. To find out more about Hopewell Love visit here. Donations for Hopewell Love can be sent to the address below.

Israel Trip POSTPONED!!!
After much deliberation with the travel company, contacts in Israel and St. Peter's Lutheran church in Virginia, we have decided to postpone our congregational trip to Israel until February 2021. We do not have exact dates yet but it will be the beginning of February before Ash Wednesday. If you have made your registration, your deposit will automatically go with the move to the new dates. This will also give us time for others, who were uncertain about traveling with the virus so active, time to decide if they want to join us for the new dates. We will keep you posted.
