Worship at St. Mark´s UMC
Worship draws us close to God and strengthens us for serving Christ in the world. Most people find services at St. Mark’s to fall comfortably between formal and informal, with scripture, music, prayer and a message all contributing to the worship experience. On the first Sunday of each month, we also celebrate Holy Communion, which is open to everyone. You don’t need to be a member, because ALL are welcome at Christ’s communion table.
Please join us each Sunday for any of our worship services:
- 8:15 Traditional Service
- 9:45 Traditional Service
- 11:15 The Gathering What's this?...
You’re also welcome at our Wednesday evening program,"Soul Station," from 5:45 – 7:15 pm!
