Prayer and Care
St. Mark’s is a community of followers of Jesus Christ who care for one another. How can you help care for your neighbors? How can we support you?
This email ministry provides prayer support on behalf of those in need. Requests for prayers can be sent to the church by submitting a prayer request. Requests can be shared with the prayer chain, the congregation during worship and/or staff. If you would like to become a member of the prayer chain and provide prayer support for those in need please send an email to [email protected].
Sign up to sponsor flowers or contact the church office at 317-846-4912. Flowers are $30 and may be taken home after the 11:00 am service.
Rosebuds are placed on the altar by St. Mark’s to celebrate the birth of a new child to a St. Mark’s family.
Grandparents are welcome to order a rosebud for non-St. Mark’s grandchildren at the cost of $10 each. Dates available for rosebuds are at the discretion of St. Mark’s based on worship events.
Please contact Judy Bonnet or call the church office at 317-846-4912 for more information.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
This ministry uses the care and love of knitting, crocheting, weaving and quilting and combines it with a prayerful outreach to those in need of comfort and solace. We are always looking for new members and are happy to teach anyone interested in learning and provide supplies if needed. We would love to have any men that knit or crochet join as well. We also welcome members who would like to make shawls but can’t make the meetings. The group meets every other month on the third Tuesday.
Please contact the church office if you would like to request a prayer shawl or email Judy Bonnet.
Using traditional quilt patterns, the squares are a tangible sign of connection and encouragement. A cross is sewn inside as a reminder of God’s constancy, love and grace. The Prayer Squares are available at the Welcome Center in the Narthex. If you or someone you know could use this tangible symbol of support and prayer you are invited to take one as a gift or to share with someone else.
Contact the church office at 317-846-4912 if you are interested in helping with prayer squares.
New Mother Ministry
This team of volunteers takes turns delivering a basket filled with a variety of items – coffee mugs, teas, lotions, candles, soaps, and layette items (bibs, spoons, onesies, sippy cups, hats, small blankets, rattles) – to the new St. Mark’s mom. Along with the filled basket, the rose from the altar is included in the delivery. Are you interested in being a part of this ministry? Volunteers are needed to deliver baskets during a designated month and to donate items for the baskets. Please contact Shelley Carver if you would like to volunteer.
