VISITING WITH US for the first time?
Let us start by saying how happy we are that you are thinking about joining us. We hope that any questions you have will be answered here, but if not, feel free to reach out and ask.
what time do things begin?Our congregation begins gathering at 10am for fresh baked goodies and coffee. We are a friendly bunch, enjoying the time before the service to catch up with one another. The service will begin at 10:30 am and will last about 1 hour.
Our pews are "coffee-friendly" so you are welcome to grab a cup and find a place to sit where you are comfortable.
what can I expect from the service?We offer a blend of ancient and future worship styles – meaning we value and explore both historical liturgy & music as well as current trends in worship.
what's the vibe?Most would describe St Marks as a come-as-you-are kind of place. Our congregation is both classic and eclectic, dressy and casual. If you are comfortable, then we're happy.
What if I'm bringing children with me?Your children are more than welcome at St Marks Church. When you arrive, you may take them upstairs so they can hang out in the Kingdom Zone or they are welcome to stay with you during worship. Wherever they are comfortable is perfectly fine with us.
parkingWe are a neighborhood church, located in the Northshore/Hill City neighborhood, so we have a mix of street and lot parking. You are also welcome to walk or bike.
YOU ARE WELCOME HERE
All are welcome at St. Marks United Methodist Church, and by “all” we mean ALL. We strive to live out the words found in Galatians 3:28, “There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.” In so doing, we are a congregation that embodies God’s absolute love and hospitality, proclaiming Jesus as our savior and as our model of the ultimate embodiment of God’s love. We believe that all persons are of sacred worth and dignity as part of God’s good creation. St. Marks United Methodist Church welcomes all persons into the full life and ministry of our congregation, regardless of race, culture, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or socioeconomic status, physical or mental ability, or faith history.
