Care Ministries

Care Ministry Available

Have you or someone you know recently had to adjust to any of the following situations: a new job, a new baby, a new boss, a new house, a separation, a grown child moving back home, a serious illness, or a serious illness of a family member, a death, or a best friend who has moved? Be caring and helpful to those around you who are having to make adjustments to their lives. You can make a difference and really help by encouraging them to talk with someone.

St. Mark Care Ministers are trained and available to listen and provide confidential help to those experiencing life challenges. Contact Vicki Hertko if you or someone you know would like a Care Minister or more information about this ministry.

Prayer Ministry

St. Mark is passionate about the power of prayer, believing that God hears our prayers and responds. In addition to encouraging members and visitors to pray often, we have a dedicated prayer team that accepts the prayer requests of the St. Mark community and lifts them up into God’s care. If you would like to be involved in the prayer team, we welcome you gratefully and thank you for serving St. Mark and the community through prayer. Please contact Bonnie Qualley by phone (515-867-1039) or e-mail (, or contact the church office ( to join in this important ministry.
