Frank Johnston entered his heavenly home about 7:30 Thursday evening, August 20.  Pat, Susan, Jeff, Will and I were with him at the time.  It is hard to say good-bye to one who has meant so much to us and to so many others.

Collecting for our Community Food Bank

Submitted by Jay C. Treat on Sat, 02/10/2018 - 8:58 pm

We collect non-perishable food and household supplies for our community food bank, St. Mark's Food Center. We can leave them outside the pastor's office. The need for food in our community has increased due to unemployment during the pandemic.

The Food Center always needs soup, pasta, and pasta sauce. And they can always use tuna, peanut butter, and canned fruit. See more ideas.
