“Called to Respond” Event

   Calvary Lutheran Church in Grand Forks is holding a special event     

                  “Called to Respond to our Neighbors in Need”

Sunday, May 20th at Calvary Lutheran (Fellowship Hall)  6:30-8:00 p.m.

         Sometimes it takes a tragedy to remind us that we belong to each other and we are called to care for one another.

Do we know what to do if the person in front of us is undergoing a mental health, relationship or financial crisis?  What do we say and where do we get help?

Calvary Lutheran has invited a panel of professionals from GF Police Department, CVIC, Grand Forks School District, Altru and North East Human Services to come together to help us.  They are eager to share their expertise and resources that can help us to respond to those around us who are struggling.

This event is for young adults and adults.  Childcare will be available for young children.

Bring your questions, your concerns, and your desire to be a good neighbor.

All Are Welcome!!

Calvary is located at 1405 South 9th Street.  Questions?  Call 701-772-4897

UND Big Event

On April 29th, St. Mark’s had a group of UND Students here participating in UND’s Big Event.  These students worked hard and accomplished a lot with enthusiasm and good humor.  They vacuumed, cleaned, washed, dusted, etc- no job too big or small. Thank you so much. Thanks, too, for our member volunteers who worked along side the students today – Kathy W., Ray & Kathy M., Nancy & Arnie H., and Iver & Sandy B.

Harp Lessons

Callie Stadem, a very talented harpist, shares her beautiful music with us before and during worship once a month.  Callie also spends time with our Sunday School kids on occasion.  Recently, she brought “child size” harps and worked with our students.  They were given the opportunity to try these harps out.   They really enjoyed their time with Callie and got a chance to play this beautiful instrument!Sunday School - Harp 2Sunday School - HarpSunday School - Harp 5Sunday School - Harp 4sunday-school-harp-3.jpg
