There will also be the opportunity to decorate and take home a “dove” cookie! Cookies, icing and sprinkles will be available for all who want to be “filled” with the Holy Spirit. Join the fun in the Fellowship Hall after each worship time!

12-13 Youth Mental Health First Aid Training, 5:45-9 pm
This 6-hour training, led by John and Kim Speer (retired mental health professionals), teaches adults how to identify and respond to signs of mental illness and substance abuse among youth. Similar to medical first aid classes, this training is a class for adults who work with children/youth to help identify how to recognize the difference between typical development and signs of mental illness, how to respond and refer. This class will be held in St. Mark’s Fellowship Hall.
