Mission to St. Mark's 2018

Starts:     Apr 06, 2018 @   Ends:     Apr 08, 2018 @  

St John’s UMC will travel to the New Orleans French Quarter to carry out its mission of “feeding people” and to participate with Saint Mark’s UMC in its ministry to the homeless and hungry in this third annual mission. Volunteers are urged to register before March 1, 2018.  

The cost is $125 per person and includes lodging and meals and an afternoon at the famed New Orleans School of Cooking enjoying a cooking class and a meal of Creole/Cajun culinary delights! Volunteers may also be asked to contribute to the cost of fuel. 

The mission will depart on Friday morning at 7 a.m. from the church parking lot.  

On Friday the mission team will help in sprucing up St Mark’s UMC and North Rampart Community Center by painting, repairing and general clean-up. (Exact projects will be determined by these ministries as the mission dates draw near.) These projects will continue for a half-day on Saturday with the school of cooking activity scheduled for Saturday afternoon.  

On Sunday the team will also prepare and serve a meal to 150-200 homeless persons and join in the St Mark’s worship service at 10 a.m.  

Come join us as we make a Christian Difference with those in need! Please download and fill out the registration form. Forms must be accompanied by the $125 cost and returned to the Church Office. The team is limited to 20 people.  

Those who cannot go to New Orleans will be able to help by preparing dishes to feed the team and homeless to send with the mission team or make a donation for building materials. This is a mission for everyone!

  Be Welcomed. Be Loved.

We are a Christian community called to share our gifts through worship, witness and service so that others will know God and become disciples of Jesus Christ.

Sunday worship at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.
