Be Rich

Here at Markey Church, we believe that our church is here to be blessing in our community. That’s why we are kicking off our Be Rich Campaign. We’ll be raising money and collecting donations for some local non-profits who are doing really good work in Roscommon County. We want to come alongside of them, and show them that the local church is here to support them as they do good in our community.

Purpose:

Markey Church exists primarily for the benefit of those who are not yet part of our local church. We’re here to be a blessing.  We’re FOR our community.  The Be Rich Campaign is designed to help us live this purpose out, in real and tangible ways.

Partners:

is year, we’ll be partnering with four non-profits throughout Roscommon County: 1) Roscommon Elementary School, in Roscommon, 2) First Congregational Food Pantry, in Roscommon, 3) Habitat For Humanity, in Prudenville, and 4) Foster Closet of Michigan – Roscommon County Branch.

Goals:

Here’s what we’re inviting everyone into who calls Markey Church home: 1) we’re asking everyone to give $29.95 toward our Be Rich Campaign, beginning November 5th. Every penny of that money will go to one of our four Be Rich Partners. We hope to raise enough to give each of our partners a BIG check, to use however they see fit (and shhhhh…this part is a surprise!). 2) We are also collecting specific items from our partners shopping list to meet their needs.
