What it is:

The Restoration Project: A Spiritual Giving Campaign was our effort to add to the community support we already provide every month.  During the months of April through July, 10 percent of contributions made to our general tithes and offering funds went toward restoration grants for those in our community affected by this crisis.

The results are:

You can still contribute:

While our grant program has ended, we are still using your gifts to impact lives of those affected by the continuing COVID19 Crisis.  Groceries for seniors and food for the homeless continue to go out weekly.  Give today, just CLICK HERE.

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 continuing to practice social distancing. 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 Sundays – TO BE VIEWED VIA FACEBOOK AND LIVESTREAM ONLY – until further notice. 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 Wednesdays – TO BE VIEWED VIA FACEBOOK AND LIVESTREAM ONLY – until further notice. 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
           5722 W. 12th Street, Little Rock, AR  72204, 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

  • All persons entering our buildings must stop at the tables at the Main Entrance to conduct any business with the church.  Use of hand sanitizer and other safety procedures are mandatory.
  • 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.

The Money Matters powered by Arvest Bank team, led by Deacon Charles Thomas, has provided some helpful tips to get you through this difficult season as the COVID19 crisis impacts your personal finances.

Remember, if you are able to continue making payments to your creditors, please do.  For those who are not able to, you may find these options helpful:

1) Contact and call all creditors for deferred payments for two months or more. This applies to Auto loans, credit card debts, mortgage loans, and more. You can also contact your utility companies for deferred payment information. The President and state governors have asked businesses to work with the American people in terms of finances.

2) For renters, landlords have been asked not to evict people doing this period, however, please speak personally with your landlord. There may be important information you need to know about lesser or deferred payment options specific to your housing situation.

3) Take a look at your budgets and make the proper adjustments based on your current income. For example, if you are paying $250 a month for AT&T Uverse, and you are only watching a few channels, you might want to lower your plan.

Want to better understand the stimulus plan and what it means for your household? Here is a link to helpful information about the government disaster assistance plan.
