Call it "spring fever", "burnout", or just "life", but right now, St. Mark's has a shortage of helping hands for the many jobs that need to be covered in providing our Sunday services. Aside from clergy, it takes about seven (7) volunteers to cover a typical 8:45 a.m. service and about a dozen (12) for the 11:00 a.m. service, including coffee hour after each.
