Operation Christmas Child
St Mark has chosen to participate in the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. We are given 50 shoeboxes to pack to help children around the globe have a joyous Christmas. You can pick up boxes at the church office. Be sure to also grab a label for your box.
We would like to have them ready the week of November 16 so that we can deliver them to Pflugerville UMC (a local drop-off location). A donation of $9/box is requested to offset Samaritan’s Purse shipping costs, so please include that in the envelopes provided.
I’ve attached a list of suggested gifts to get you started. (Click on the link below)
I pray that each of us can participate in this mission. For those with children, perhaps each child could pack a box for a same age child.
And, this is not limited just to our members: perhaps some of your friends and family would like to join us reach our goal of 50 boxes of love and smiles.
Please let us know if you have any questions.

Greetings! We have an opportunity for you to “give all you can” for giving Tuesday!
Tuesday, December 1, is designated as Giving Tuesday. Last year, we raised over $5,000 for our Giving Tuesday event. Let’s surpass that this year. 2020 has been tough---which is an understatement---but we have the opportunity to make an impact by raising much needed funds for St. Mark UMC.
You can participate in Giving Tuesday by:
Sending your pledge via email by replying to this email.
Donating though PayPal or Zelle (if your bank uses Zelle)
Dropping off your donation at the church office (please designate “Giving Tuesday”)
Putting your Giving Tuesday donation in the offering plate on Sunday (please designate “Giving Tuesday”)
And, you can challenge others to give by agreeing to match donations up to a certain amount. Let’s see how many challenges we can get going
Let’s “Give All We Can” on this Giving Tuesday---and help meet the challenge or create your own challenge!
