​​​​​​​Slagle Scholarship Update

This year the St. Mark Scholarship Committee reviewed ELEVEN applications for selection of the Slagle Scholarship recipient.  The 2018 recipient is Karla Garcia Melquiades.  Karla graduated from Hanover High School on May 31st.  She will study nursing at the Gettysburg campus of HACC.  She hopes to become a registered nurse.  Serving on the committee this year was Nancy Fasnacht, Tom Long, Susan Miller, Don Seidenstricker, and Pastor Kirk Griffin.  Thank you to all the committee members and to Tim Sell (nephew of the Slagles) for presenting the award.

Sunday School - 3 Classes 

This year we are offering THREE classes for children, yes, THREE!  But, as expected, adding more classes creates more need for volunteers.  The children’s ages for these classes start with nursery and go up to 6th grade.  Think how cute and receptive and creative children are at these ages.  Think how much fun you would have working with them. Please contact Martha Lippy and volunteer for these special ministries. 

New Adult Class on Sunday Mornings

Our adult intergenerational Sunday School class continues. It meets from 10:20 - 11:20am and is geared toward teenagers to seniors, men and women. Donna Jones and Martha Howells lead the discussion. 


All are welcome to attend.

We even can provide the Bibles.

Bible Study - Book of James

From 10:30am to 12 noon on Fridays we are studying the Book of James.

Find out why Martin Luther called it “a letter of straw”. Come and glean some  important teachings from within the book. Bibles can be provided and no previous experience necessary. No prior Bible knowledge or experience is necessary to share in this informative study.
