Volunteerism

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8

Our Missions Committee has a number of opportunities throughout the year for people to volunteer, and serve through different projects and various partner agencies. There are also times when unplanned needs arise and we need people “on call” to donate their time and talents.

We all know it takes many hands to carry out God’s work and would be delighted to have people serve on the Missions Committee. Our team meets the second Tuesday, each month on our church campus.

Take a look at all the ways you can help support our Missions commitment at St. Mark’s through your time and talents. Learn more
