The Linda Marks Memorial Missions Offering & Matching Campaign
To honor the memory of Linda Marks and her legacy to Missions efforts at First Baptist Church and to the Memphis community, this year’s Missions Allocations will be called The Linda Marks Memorial Missions Offering.
The Marks family is pleased to offer a ‘challenge donation’ to increase First Baptist Memphis Missions Goal in memory of Linda Marks to honor her commitment to missions and our gratitude for First Baptist as a faith community.
Once your donations reach $25,000, they will match any additional donations up to $3,000. They hope total donations (including theirs) will become $31,000! Please give generously so that we can take full advantage of this opportunity to expand our mission presence in the wider community.
2021-2022 Missions Allocations*
- Arkwings 10%
- CBF Global Missions 10%
- Church Health Center 10%
- Lifeline to Success 20%

*Based on the example provided by CBF, we will continue to include volunteer hours in our mission offering. Partnership with other local ministries includes our personal participation in their ministry. Your designated gifts will continue to be sent to the recipient of your choice.
