Why Should Members Give to St. Mark?
God calls us to put Him first and worship Him in every area of our lives. In a world that is obsessed with money, one of the most difficult and yet rewarding ways to put God first is in the area of your finances. Scripture calls us to give Him the first fruits of our income as an offering to Him. This tithe, or 10%, is an act of worship that trusts in God to be #1 in our lives.
Deuteronomy 14:22-29 (Set aside a tenth to learn to revere God)
Malachi 3:7-12 (God blesses those who tithe)
Matthew 6:25-34 (Trust God with your money and He will provide)
You can place your offering in the collection plate after the sermon by using your numbered envelope or a blank envelope found in the seat backs.
