Our stewardship theme this year is Rooted in Abundance.  We are inspired to give because so much has been given to us.  We give so that we can share that love with a world in need.

Saint Mark’s is a visible symbol of the love of God in our community.  Saint Mark’s is an important part of the community in Upper Arlington and beyond.

This is possible because our members give their time and expertise to make it happen.  Sunday worship services depend on ushers, lectors, choir members, chalice bearers, acolytes, livestream producers and many more.  Youth group depends on leaders.  Outreach depends on many people being willing to help.

We will be celebrating the ingathering on Sunday October 29.

You can bring your pledge card to church on the 29th, send it in before that or give through the online pledge form.

If you did not receive a stewardship mailing, please let our office manager, Melanie Jacobs know (  She can send you a pledge card.
