Elevating Our Mission Updates

As of November 30, 2020 the St. Marks UMC balance for the Elevating Our Mission Loan is $137,504.54. The  time to complete and turn in your 2021 Pledge Card has arrived. We ask that you consider adding a pledge to help St. Marks UMC pay off our Elevating Our Mission Loan. You can turn in your 2021 Pledge Card in the offering plate, mail it in the self-addressed envelope or drop it off at the Church office to the attention of the Church Treasurer, Linda Whetstone. Please note: The Church office hours are Monday – Thursday 9 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Any money you want to designate to Elevating Our Mission needs to be marked on your 2021 Pledge Card on the Elevating Our Mission Loan line. Just a reminder, this is marked on your offering envelopes as Church Expansion. You can also continue to donate online on the St. Marks UMC website.

To begin online giving you will need to establish an account


You can either generate a onetime gift or a recurring donation to the General Fund, Missions Fund, BIMM (Building Improvement and Major Maintenance) Fund or the Church Expansion (Elevating Our Mission Loan) Fund.


Please use a checking or savings account for recurring donations.  Also, be sure to register your envelope number when you establish your account for ease of in-house tracking of your donations.  There is a small administrative cost for this convenient method of donation and you might consider adjusting your donation with a slight increase to cover these costs.
