Important Information regarding Saint Mark response to COVID-19 outbreak

Read the letter from Pastor P HERE.

Following the recommended precautions of our city’s leadership and health professionals, we are limiting our gatherings to fewer than 200 people. We want to be a part of the solution to suppress exposure to the highly contagious disease. The following outlines changes to our worship, meeting and event schedules:

  • We will have ONE service at 10 a.m. on Sunday, March 29, TO BE VIEWED VIA FACEBOOK AND LIVESTREAM ONLY. This means our campus will NOT host members and guests on Sunday, in order to keep our live in-sanctuary attendance at a minimum.
  • We will only have evening Bible Study on Wednesday, April 1, TO BE VIEWED VIA FACEBOOK AND LIVESTREAM ONLY. We will NOT host members and guests on campus on Wednesday.
  • PLEASE CONTINUE TO REGULARLY SUPPORT SMBC FINANCIALLY through your consistent giving of tithes and offerings through use of your giving envelopes, the Saint Mark app, and the PushPay app, both of which can be downloaded from the app store of your digital device. The church offices will be open during regular business hours for those who want to bring their contributions and leave them in the giving boxes in the Atrium.Those who choose to mail their contributions to the church should use this mailing address:

          Saint Mark Baptist Church

ATTN: SMBC FINANCE COMMITTEE

  • ALL OTHER MINISTRY MEETINGS, REHEARSALS, AND ACTIVITIES ARE CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The Saint Mark Baptist Church (SMBC) seeks to be a proactive congregation and community partner in mitigating exposure and spread of the coronavirus in our area. In an effort to inform SMBC members and friends of our continued efforts to ensure the health and safety of our congregation, please be aware of the following:

CURRENT STATUS & PROCEDURES

  • There are NO reported cases of the coronavirus infection among our church staff or congregation.
  • The SMBC maintenance staff conducts a daily and regular cleaning of our Worship Center, Children & Youth Center. Family Life Center, and Outreach/Education Center, including worship spaces, meeting rooms, classrooms, offices and restrooms throughout the week prior to and post event usage. This practice utilizes standard cleaning tools, instruments, and disinfectants.
  • SMBC has a combined twenty-eight operational multi-person and single-use restrooms across our campus. Each are equipped with soap dispensers and paper towels.

SMBC is currently supplied with multiple bottles of hand sanitizer in every gathering space outside of the sanctuary for member and visitor use.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

If you are displaying any symptoms of a cold, flu or virus of ANY FORM:

  • We ask that you NOT enter the church facility until you recover from any and all symptoms through the full 14-day CDC advised self-quarantine period; this includes ALL members, ministry leaders, visitors and church staff.
  • We ask that you take the necessary health precautions and contact your doctor for advisement.
  • We ask that you thoroughly wash your hands for twenty seconds using disinfectant soap in all settings.
  • We ask that you limit your coughs to within the elbow and sleeve space of the arm to reduce the spread of potential bacteria in all settings.
  • We ask that you visit the website of The Center of Disease Control for further prevention measures you can take to protect you and your family: https://www.cdc.gov/corona…/2019-ncov/community/…/index.html.

What is the PUSH Offering?

PUSH Offering is our chance to celebrate God’s grace through generosity. It’s an opportunity to grow our church accounts instead of deplete them, grow in our personal giving, and follow the Bible’s way of raising funds for special projects.

Here’s what we should all do: Pray about becoming a consistent giver, plan what to give, and participate by bringing your offering weekly. Its time to Celebrate God’s Grace to you by pushing Him to the front of the line in your giving. It’s time to push your giving to the next level.

The goal for PUSH Sunday is $150,000.

Watch the sermon below for more about the PUSH Offering.

Special Projects

Our special projects for 2019 include:

• updating flooring in the Worship Center,

• a facelift for the exterior of the Family Life Center and the Education/Outreach Center

• much-needed improvements to the West Parking Lot,

• and updating our outdoor directional signage.
