20:25-28 Jesus called them together and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and
their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must
be your servant,and whoever wants to be first must be your slave--just as the Son of Man did
not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
you consider helping with the St. Mark Community Garden?
Watch Our Garden
Every spring St. Mark plants a garden full of
vegetables and fruit. Everything planted is donated by the members of St. Mark. When grown, these fruits and vegetables are
available to the church family, the Worth Food Pantry, and needy families within the community.
St. Patricks day is the day to begin seeds indoors
for spring planting. Cold weather crops like lettuce, beets, radishes, cabbage, carrots can be started mid April - especially
in the warmer raised beds.
Thank you in advance for your interest. Kristie and Mike
The St. Mark Community Garden was begun to help the area's hungry. Since its inception, 80% of all produce has been donated
to local food pantries. 2011 brought the next phase of our garden, individual raised beds for community use. Our project began
with 10 raised beds. Participation by local residents wishing to improve their health and well being is welcome. Youth
groups are encouraged to participate. It is our feeling that people thrive when they slow down long enough to enjoy the
simple pleasures that God has provided.Growing, harvesting and enjoying fresh vegetables is another way
to connect with our creator.Contact Linda in the Church office
