Outreach ministries

For information on any of these ministries, please contact Kelli Schmidt, our Parish Administrator at stmarks337@gmail.com

  • First sunday food drive

    We bring our donations to church on the first Sunday of each month to be blessed at the altar and then taken to the Cuba Township and Barrington Township Food Pantries to support struggling local families. 

  • Lake Barrington Woods (Lbw)

    A team of committed lay ministers takes communion to the residents of LBW every Sunday. 

  • Christmas boxes program

    Families of the church volunteer to support a family in Chicago by providing Christmas gifts that the family would not otherwise be able to give.  While our families are incredibly generous, nothing compares to the letters of heartfelt thanks we receive each January!

  • Prayer shawl

    A team knits shawls which are donated either to the families of newly baptized (presented in the baptism service) or to people hospitalized or shut in because of illness.
