When we think of Pentecost we think of the color red—the red of youth, joy, discovery, and growth. Pentecost is always the seventh Sunday after Easter and this year we will celebrate on June 5 and welcome our Confirmands to membership at St. Mark. A gift to the Pentecost Offering helps the church encourage, develop, and support its young people, and it also addresses the needs of at-risk children. St. Mark retains 40% of what is collected to distribute locally. This is your chance to make a difference for children and youth at risk and young adults.
