SERVEThe unique purpose and work of a congregation is to gather those called by God into Christ’s body, the Church, a community of transformation of mind, heart and action, and to SEND these same into the world to be and to act as God’s loving and transforming presence. At Saint Mark’s, we offer many opportunities to engage in: onsite direct service (outreach), volunteering with off-site mission partners, and participating in civil discourse and public process through Faith in Action/advocacy groups. This encompasses what we refer to as “community engagement” at Saint Mark’s..
The Wells Foundation’s mission is to drive entrepreneurial social innovation resulting in lasting change in our community.
The Wells Foundation has been committed to making a difference in the community since its founding in the late 1880’s as a settlement house. In the last ten years, our main focus has been homelessness, particularly among youth and veterans. Our grants to nonprofits are targeted to help clients remove barriers to self-sufficiency in many ways.
