To look beyond ourselves to the people around us and share the love of Christ as we serve and connect with our church family and the community.
Love in a Backpack
This ministry provides weekend food for selected children at several of the local schools and our own preschool. The students have been identified by the school district as “Families In
Transition” (homeless). A group of church volunteers pack the bags weekly with healthy food & snacks and deliver them to the schools. The items are donated or paid for by our congregation, fundraising events and community members outside of our church.
Give Kids the World (Mission Trip)
“Give Kids the World” is a storybook themed Make-A-Wish resort located in Kissimmee.
This St. Mark's team's mission supports the small, paid GKTW staff by providing services, entertainment, and fellowship with the Make-A-Wish families lodging at the Resort Village.
A Joyful Day
This outreach ministry is designed to provide a safe and caring place each week for adults in need of supervision allowing their caregivers a few hours of respite time.
Church volunteers engage the participates in supervised games, art projects, and singing. It is truly a “Joyful Day” for the participants, caregivers, and our volunteers!
This program is open to all participants from the community.
Family Life Center
Many of our ministries and individual members support the Family Life Center (domestic
abuse center) with donations (socks, blankets, toys, hygiene items, etc.) that the families
staying there may need.
Widow's Next Chapter
This group offers fellowship to widowed women of the church and community. The group
meets monthly for a shared meal, a service-oriented activity, game or listening to an
informational speaker. The group is not designed to be a grief share group. Instead. it offers
an opportunity for women to form a close-knit group with other widows, supporting and
empowering one another.
