Invest In Hope: When Jesus saw the woman…crippled for eighteen years, he called her over and said, "Woman, you are set free from your ailment." Luke 13-12
Jesus set many people free, and he invites us to do likewise. Support of medical efforts, especially on behalf of the poor and needy, is exactly what Jesus would do today.
Let’s Celebrate This Christmas Together At St. Mark’s: We are announcing our fundraising drive to keep St. Mark’s a vibrant, loving, Gospel-living presence in Mesa. We need everyone’s help NOW to make it happen. There are two prongs to this campaign: one is to bring new members to our church in both the Spanish and the English service; and the second is to raise much-needed cash IMMEDIATELY. The first element will help us continue to grow our community of faith, the second is necessary to allow us to survive until Christmas, as well as grow. If we do not raise enough money, we will not be here for Christmas. We ask you to donate NOW. We have so many options that there is no excuse to give generously. You can use check, cash, online direct from your bank account, or PayPal from our website www.stmarksmesa.org. Please make a note indicating “Christmas” as the designation. We will be keeping track on a fundraising thermometer. We also continue to collect your coins as part of the same fundraiser. Every contribution helps! How far will they stretch? If you love St. Mark’s, NOW is the time to donate. As Fr. G said, “If we do not gather, we will scatter”. God Bless and let us all be cheerful givers! Dianne Nunez, Stewardship and Faithful Fundraisers Chair.
