St. Mark’s is blessed by your presence at worship, just as we are by your service to St. Mark’s and our local community. Because of your service and gratitude St. Mark’s continues to inspire and form an ever-growing number of people of all ages in the richness of Episcopal traditions. Because of you, St. Mark’s continues to prepare and serve a nourishing lunch for our hungry neighbors every Wednesday. Because of you, St. Mark’s continues to be a neighborhood resource – providing sanctuary for homeless adults through Interfaith Action of Evanston’s Hospitality Center, providing a place of healing for those recovering from addiction, providing a place of fun and gathering for a Brownie Troop, the Evanston Junior Wildkit Cheerleaders and countless other groups who use our space throughout the year. Because of you, Evanston knows that St. Mark’s is making a difference.
At the top of this page, you will find a link to the 2017 Pledge Card. We invite you to prayerfully consider pledging a financial commitment to St. Mark’s this year. We hope you will reflect on the many ways St. Mark’s touches you and others in the community. This year’s campaign goal is $276,000. With your help, we can make it!
Other Ways to Give
In addition to making an annual pledge (see above), gifts can be made by putting a check or cash into the offering plate on Sunday mornings. These monies go directly to St. Mark’s Operating Budget except on the 1st Sunday of the month when cash gifts are given to the Deacon’s Alms Fund to be used to assist those in need in our community.
Additionally, you can make a gift at anytime to St. Mark’s – typically in the form of a bequest or legacy, a gift made in memory of someone or in someone’s honor, or a gift of thanks for or in appreciation of the church or its ministries. St. Mark’s requests that such gifts be made unrestricted to support the general operations of the church wherever possible.
However, St. Mark’s also accepts donations to existing designated funds and to support specific budgeted programs and ministries. Any gifts that do not fall within these constraints will be reviewed by the vestry to determine if St. Mark’s is able to accept the gift.
Credit Cards: Yes, St. Mark’s accepts Credit Card payments for any gift – pledges or one-time. Simply click the Donate button on the top left hand side of any page of our website.
We are grateful for the gifts you bring to St. Mark’s and marvel at how God cherishes and multiplies each and every gift for God’s good purposes. We are, after all, bound together in Christ!
