We are one family through Christ, called to share, walk with, and pray for the needs of those around us.
Wednesday Night Dinner at 5:00 pm During the school year, we offer a homemade meal each Wednesday evening to anyone who comes to the table. Here you'll enjoy a nutritious, satisfying meal and share in fellowship. The cost is a freewill offering of $2 per person ($10 max per family). The most up-to-date menu is posted here.
North St. Paul Food Shelf
St. Mark’s has a long association with the North St. Paul Food Shelf. In addition to regular food drives, every 2 months or so volunteers assist clients with “shopping” for needed food and other items. Other volunteer opportunities are available as well, such as sorting donated food, and serving on the Food Shelf Board. This year, St. Mark’s expanded our involvement with the Food Shelf by providing space and volunteers to staff monthly “Pop-up Farmers Markets” during the summer.
Polar Packs/Polar Den
Over 60% of the students attending North High School are at risk of going without meals over the weekend. Food insecurity is an invisible challenge in our community. St. Mark’s partners with North High School to support their Polar Den program. Students who are occasionally in need of a meal or hygiene products, and may visit the Polar Den -- an emergency needs shelf located at North High School.
Soup Sundays are held twice a year–prior to Thanksgiving and during the annual congregational meeting. The proceeds from these events are used to purchase holiday meals for area families in need and global mission ministries.
Gift Goes On Christmas Outreach
Working with Ramsey County and HeadStart, St. Mark’s members are offered the opportunity to provide Christmas gifts, hats, mittens, and grocery gift cards to families in need.
