CARE CONSTRUCTION TEAM
The Care Construction Ministry participates in local and international missions, by providing construction expertise and assistance. Locally they build wheelchair ramps and complete projects for accessibility. The Same Ten men’s small group are participants in the Care Construction Ministry and welcome anyone who would like to serve alongside them. This team also actively participates in our Honduras Missions and disaster recovery.
One of the ways Saint Mark serves our surrounding community is through our Food Pantry. To donate, become a client, or read our FAQs click below.
The Sarah Shoe Ministry provides shoes to our Food Pantry Clients.
We need your gently used and outgrown shoes to continue supporting this ministry. We encourage you to leave your donation in the Welcome Center or contact Secretary@SaintMarkNorthport.com.

Prayer Shawl Ministry
“Shawls … They wrap, enfold, comfort, cover, give solace, mother, hug, shelter and beautify.”
— Janet Severi Bristow, 1998
There is a common misconception that prayer shawls are not made for happy and positive events. However, they can be as much a celebration of life as they can of loss. Any instance where the crafter is thinking of someone. In the words of the Prayer Shawl Ministry:
“Shawls can be used for: undergoing medical procedures; as a comfort after a loss or in times of stress; during bereavement; prayer or meditation; commitment or marriage ceremonies; birthing, nursing a baby; bridal shower or wedding gift; leading ritual; first menses or croning rites of passage; during an illness and recovery; ministering to others; graduation, birthday, anniversary, ordination, holiday gifts; or just socializing.”
