Volunteer Youth Coordinator Needed
Amanda Wilder has resigned from the church council so that she can be the Director of New Beginnings. She was the liaison to the Education Committee and served as the coordinator of our Sunday School and Youth Events. The church council welcomes all nominations and suggestions of how we might fill these important roles.
Wapak Loaves and Fishes - July 16
Wapakoneta Loaves & Fishes continues their drive thru carry outs on Thursdays. Meals need to be pre-ordered by calling Connie Krites at 567-204-6708 by Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. The pick-up location is the alley behind First English Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall. Please enter the alley from Blackhoof St. Meals may be picked up from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
Amanda Wilder and Kristi Fisher are organizing the July 16 meal which St. Mark’s is providing to the community. They already have all the cookies and desserts that are needed.
Worship Seating Limited, Come on Saturday
We only have twenty pews available for twenty households to worship at one time. There is overflow seating in the lounge and music room but there is only audio and no visual in those rooms. We strongly encourage folks to come on Saturday nights at 5:00 since traditionally there have been less folks who attend that worship service.
The number of available pews is different from previous announcements because Pastor Doug miscounted, despite having made a map of the sanctuary. He apologizes for any confusion or difficulties this has caused.
Emilia June Woehrmyer, daughter of Dustin & Lindsey (Rader) Woehrmyer will be baptized Sunday, July 5 during the 9:15 a.m. worship service.

Youth Highway Clean Up – June 25
Highway Clean Up will be on Thursday, June 25. Please meet at the church at 10:00 am.
Bring gloves and a bucket.
Pizza and swimming will be held at Cortney Roger’s house after clean up.
Volunteers Needed to Reopen
With the many different changes as to how we gather for worship, we need volunteers to help make it happen. We need greeters who will welcome people and direct them to the sanitizers, masks and encourage physical distancing. We need ushers who will escort people to the appropriate seating so that we can accommodate our extremely limited seating. We need cleaners to sanitize the sanctuary after each worship service. And finally, we need readers to read a lesson and lead in praying a psalm together. The council members will do it the first two weeks but after that we need folks who are less at risk to do these things. Please call the church office, 419-738-3122 or send an email, firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
