Give Now

Mobile giving

Give online anytime, anywhere using your checking account, bank card or available payment options. Easily set up a recurring gift to fulfill your pledge.

Electronic funds transfer (EFT)

Give conveniently and consistently through electronic funds transfer directly from your bank account. EFT eliminates frequent check writing and helps you stay on track with your pledge. St. Mark’s ministries benefit from consistency in receiving your gifts and efficiency in processing them. More information...

Check or cash

Give by placing your check or cash in the offering plate during worship or by sending a check in the mail. St. Mark’s sends out quarterly giving statements to ensure gifts are properly recorded. Cash should be placed in a marked giving envelope, available in the sanctuary pews, to ensure it is credited.

Planned giving

Planned giving allows you to commit a gift to St. Mark’s but to delay delivery of the final benefit of the gift until a later time, such as upon the distribution of your estate. Those who make planned gifts to the church may receive tax or other income benefits. To learn more, contact St.Mark’s.

Giving beyond your pledge

Any gifts beyond your pledge may be given through the means described above. And, you have the following additional avenues available.

Memorials and honorariums

Offer tribute to people who are important to you and support the ministry of St. Mark’s above your pledge through memorial and honorary gifts. Occasions for these gifts include remembering a special person upon his or her passing, honoring a person who has touched your life in a special way, or celebrating a special occasion or milestone in your life.

Make a check payable to St. Mark’s UMC, or use the mobile giving tool. Indicate the gift as a memorial or honorarium and provide the name of the person(s) to be remembered or honored. St. Mark’s will send an acknowledgment card to the person’s family (memorial) or to the honored person directly.

Retail perks

Use the extra, no-cost benefits offered by retailers you already use to benefit the ministry of St. Mark’s.
