Semi-annual Voters’ Meeting on
December 3 after church
The Call Committee has decided to pause the call process until they have had a chance to present 4 options to the voters’ assembly on Sunday, December 3 at 11:00 a.m. in order to solicit the voters’ input. It is only by the guidance of the Holy Spirit that they will be led to help the congregation find our next pastor! And it is essential that ALL voters attend the Voters’ Meeting on December 3!
Upcoming Events & Announcements

Due to not having a permanent pastor at this time, St. Mark’s will not be having our usual midweek Advent worship services. However, some of our area sister congregations will be taking turns hosting the midweek services and all parishioners in our circuit are invited to attend! The services will take place at 7:00 p.m. with a theme of: The Way, The Truth, The Life, and the schedule is as follows:
December 6 at Peace Lutheran Church, 7390 Elizabeth Lake Road, Waterford: The Way of the World, the Way of Christ
December 13 at Faith Lutheran Church, 3501 E. Highland Road, Highland Twp.: The Truth of Man, the Truth of God
