Stewardship & Giving

Members of St. Mark's are encouraged to give of their time, talent, and resources for the benefit of the church, the world, and our lives. Our goal is to be witnesses of proportional giving, understanding that everything we have already belongs to God. Join us as we strive to be a joyful offering to God, the Church, and the world.

Faith Stories


The Vestry Stewardship Statement

The Vestry of St. Mark's at their August 2015 meeting adopted the following stewardship statement.

  • WE BELIEVE that all of what we have and all of who we are comes from God.
  • WE COMMIT ourselves individually and as a vestry to being faithful witnesses of Christ both to our parish 'ohana and to the world.
  • WE INVITE you, our fellow parishioners, to join us in deepening our faith together by experiencing the profound joy that comes from thankful giving.
 

Episcopal Church Outreach

St. Mark's raises money throughout the year for various outreach organizations. On Ash Wednesday our offering goes to Episcopal Relief and Development. On Good Friday the offering is for the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East, and especially for the ministry of St. George's Cathedral, Jerusalem. We also participate in the United Thank Offering every Spring, the major collection sponsored by the Episcopal Church Women.
