Your continued support during the COVID-19 crisis has been much appreciated and we thank God for each of you. As we move forward toward our New Normal across the United States it is going to take our on-going Stewardship practices to ensure that our Church and the Churches across America and the World will survive this crisis. To the Members and contributing Friends of St. Mark's please continue to do as you have done in the past, to post your tithes, offerings and other donations. Our special thanks to all others for your gifts. We give God the glory for the things that He has done, is doing, and promises to do. We thank God for each of you.
May God bless each of you
Beyond your greatest
Thank You In Advance For Your Support
Throughout the Bible we are reminded of the responsibility of Giving:
"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith,
Saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven,
and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."
Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption;
But he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And let us not be weary in well-doing: for in due season
We shall reap, if we faint not.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men,
especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
"But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly;
And he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give, not grudgingly, or of necessity:
For God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you;
That ye, always having all sufficiency
In all things, may abound to every good work..."
II Corinthians 9:6-8
