This coming fourth Sunday of Easter is called Good Shepherd Sunday, since on this Sunday all three years of the lectionary celebrate Christ imagined as a shepherd. We will sing the beloved Psalm 23. Unfortunately, most art depicting the Good Shepherd is unrealistic and sentimental: shepherding was a difficult and dirty job for the men and women who herded the flocks, but sheep were gifts from God and essential sources of life for the people. Join us to thank Christ for being our shepherd.

Do you enjoy dining with friends?  Here is an opportunity to enjoy dinner with new and old friends of St. Mark.  Sign up on the forms provided at the top of the back steps leading to the sanctuary.  Groups of eight will be assigned.  The group decides how and when to have their dinners together. Flexibility is the key word! Contact Nancy and Karl Riemann at 609-585-5579 or highhookus@yahoo.comfor any questions or concerns.
The Social Ministry Team is having a meeting on Sunday (May 12th) after worship to plan a potential youth Summer Camp and lunch program, designed to aid families who depend on school lunches for food during the summer months. 

If you are willing to help out with this program, or would like to learn more about it, please attend the meeting on Sunday in the fellowship hall after worship.

If you cannot attend the meeting but would like to learn more, please reply to this email indicating that you are interested in participating in this program.
Please join us as we clean up and prepare our property for the summer months on May 11th starting at 9am. There is plenty of work to do, and volunteers are needed!
