Extending the Blessing

St. Mark's 2021 Annual Giving Campaign
Blessing Board

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you. - Luke 6:38

Our lives are filled with both blessings and difficulties--sometimes both together! As we move through the remaining months of 2020 and enter 2021, we are aware of both the tremendous challenges of the present and future as well as the blessings that God continues to lavish upon us--not solely for our own welfare, but for the welfare of the world. Such blessings are not always monetary, but come in a variety of forms. This page is an opportunity for members and friends to celebrate God's many blessings and thus to help us to "extend the blessing" of God via this online Bulletin Board or "Blessing Board."

Members of and friends of St. Mark's are invited to add their own list of blessings via the comments below and we will highlight them as we move through this time. Please feel free to add anything you wish and we will join with you in giving thanks. Welcome!

Jerry and I have been blessed in so many, many ways. One of the most powerful has beenSt. Mark’s. We have seen miracles happenings. The garden, pantry and even the building were something almost no one thought could happen. God had other plans. Our church has also been part of other organization, The Kelly Center, Family Nurturing Center and the Medford Food Project, all of which have also witnessed miraculous things.

St. Mark's parish members are blessed by the presence of Jerry Campbell at our live streaming services. We are so fortunate to have his help every Sunday ,and he provides us with fine music and extraordinary readings of the weekly lessons.

My Mom is 106 and still an inspiration to me, her four grandchildren and their families (and many others) with every breath she takes. Orphaned at 10 in the 1920s, she always believed in goodness, perseverance, and Someone watching over her. I am forever grateful to my Lord Jesus Christ for His immeasurable love poured into my life, and my mother Frances's life, via the warm, loving embrace of our St. Mark's family. From ongoing prayers to parish nursing care to lay ministers sharing sacraments with my mother and I in our home, to also the multitude of long term friendships that have blessed me along my own journey down through the years, words are truly inadequate at expressing what a huge blessing St. Mark's has been in our lives.
