Why is St. Mark doing this?
● St. Mark’s impact is being felt across the nation and world.  GivingTuesday is another way to get the message of the wonderful things St. Mark is doing for kingdom building.  We are also leveraging the platform for additional opportunities to support the ministries of the church.  For 2020 we are focusing on raising much needed funds to repair the roofs on campus.  Both the roof over the sanctuary and the outer buildings where voting takes place as well as community programs such as smoking cessation and COVID testing and teen pregnancy counseling.
