Giving to St. Mark's

Walk in Love

At St. Mark's we strive to set an example of Christian love and hospitality through our worship and Sunday fellowship, but much more goes on through the week which your commitment supports. We open our doors to activities for Scouts, Bible Study, new religious congregations, and Fairfax County's Nurturing Parenting Program. We celebrate the unions of new couples and the passing of old friends.

Your Pledge, however large or small, keeps our doors and hearts open and our many ministries and outreach efforts alive.We we invite you to hear "walk in love" in a new way and prayfully consider pledging to the operations of our parish.

Pledging Matters: Every year we must raise almost 100% of our income to cover our expenses. Our largest financial commitment is what is needed to prepare for Sunday services including clergy, printing bulletins, purchasing flowers, sweeping floors, etc. Our 2nd largest amount is Outreach.

 

3 Ways to Give

1. Pledges are gifts used for annual operating expenses and are usually fulfilled weekly, monthly, or annually.

2. A one time gift can help pay down the principle payment on our mortgage, currently $2,700 a month.

3. Planned giving allows you to leave a gift to St. Mark's in your wills or estate planning. These gifts are invested with the Diocese of Virginia's Investment Trust and the interest is used for operating costs.
