St. Mark's 2016 Annual Membership Canvass

St. Mark's Canvass 2016:  The heart of the stewardship effort at St. Mark's takes place every fall, when members, friends and newcomers are canvassed and asked to make a pledge of financial support for the coming calendar year.   The annual church operating budget is based on the sum of these pledges, and the number of programs that St. Mark's is able to offer depends directly on its donors’ generosity.  Canvass 2016 kicks off in early October and will run through November 8.  To learn more about what it means to make a pledge and to become a pledging member of St. Mark's, click here.  You can also review our Frequently Asked Questions document for answers to common questions about stewardship at St. Mark's.   For more about Canvass 2016, including information about the different ways you can pay your pledge, see the downloadable documents listed at the bottom of this page.

The Vision 2020 Capital Campaign:  In 2011, St. Mark’s launched the Vision 2020 Capital Campaign to raise money for a renovation and expansion of our Parish Hall Building.  The new space was dedicated on September 28, 2014, and now houses new classrooms, meeting spaces, a renovated kitchen, a new sacristy and vesting room, and clergy and staff offices.   While the project is completed, we have incurred significant debt to finance the project.  Therefore, the campaign will continue through 2016 – and if you have not made a gift or a pledge, you are encouraged to do so.  For more information about the Vision 2020 Capital Campaign and our building plans, click here.
