Do The Work Of The One Who Sent You”
Jesus said, “We must do the work of the one who sent me.” John 9:4
We are all called here to St. Mark’s. We may not have known it at the time, but God has called us all to do his work here in and through this place. We are called through our worship and praise, our prayers, and our service to others through our ministries. For all of this to happen, we need your continued support. St. Mark’s needs your time, talent, and also importantly your treasure. Your continued support helps the ministries reach out into our community. If you miss the fun events and activities of the past, volunteer your time and talent to bring them back! We also need your continued giving of the treasure that God gave you to do His work. You can give by check, cash, or credit card online. On our website, you can choose either PayPal or FaithStreet to donate. This season is a perfect time to bring a friend or family to a service or an event. When you do this, you are spreading the Good News about Jesus and St. Mark’s.
