The St. Mark’s facilities and grounds are available for use by non-profit and community-based organizations, and to a limited extent by some for-profit groups. Meeting space and rooms for groups from 10 to 200 people are available.
The St. Mark’s staff attends to the operational functions of running the church as a viable community resource and a faith-based social enterprise. This team is called upon to apply ministerial priorities, industry standards and best practices to the business and operational needs of the church. The Staff-Parish Relations Committee serves in a governance capacity to integrate staff and congregational focus on the mission of the church. The pastor provides day to day managerial and leadership oversight for the St. Mark’s staff team.
Compassion Village is a new effort in the Sacramento area whereby community churches have gotten together to build tiny homes for the homeless. St. Mark’s has been active in this effort by building one tiny home and helping develop the first community site located at 2771 Grove Avenue, Sacramento. There are regularly volunteer days (usually Saturdays) at the Grove avenue site which involve clean up, building, and gardening.
