The mission of St. Mark’s Foundation is to strengthen our church’s ministries of Christian service. Each year, grants are awarded to projects and initiatives which are consistent with the Foundation’s mission and beyond the reach of the church’s operating budget. Grant applications and guidelines are now available, and are due Friday, Aug. 1. Church staff and ministry leaders are encouraged to apply.
