Local Mission Partners Donations Presentation for 2017

The missions committee of St. Mark’s United Methodist Church held their annual Presentation of Donations Program in October. At this event, the church’s yearly donations to their twenty Local Mission Partners (LMPs) are presented and the agencies give brief updates on their work over the past year.
The program also provides an opportunity for these agencies to connect with one another and to enhance their knowledge of the many different services in our community. The LMPs are mostly non-profit agencies but also include two local government agencies that have a fund for community contributions. All these agencies help provide services for the very young to the elderly—from child care to senior housing and many services in between. Through the financial support of these agencies, it helps the church extend its ministry into our community to make it a better place to live and/or work for all our citizens. 

Donations were presented to the following agencies: CASA of the Mid-Shore, Channel Marker Inc., Character Counts Mid Shore Inc., Chesapeake Center Inc., Critchlow Adkins Children’s Centers, The Dixon House, East End Neighborhood Association, For All Seasons Inc., Habitat for Humanity Choptank, Mental Health Association of the Eastern Shore, Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence Inc., Neighborhood Service Center Inc., St. Mark’s Ministry to Aged Inc., Talbot Community Connections, Talbot Hospice Foundation Inc., Talbot County Dept. of Social Services, Talbot County Health Dept., Talbot Interfaith Shelter Inc., Talbot Mentors Inc., and Talbot Partnership for Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Prevention.
