Worship with us

Important notice!  We have only recently begun re-opening the church campus. This situation is constantly changing, so please see our homepage or look under “Announcements” for the latest information about in-person worship at our church. Or, please join us at 10 a.m. on Sundays for STREAMED WORSHIP online. Use this link to access our stream. Or go to the home page and click WORSHIP from the menu. 

We are a United Methodist congregation that truly seeks to live out “open hearts, open minds, open doors.” Our people actively seek to show hospitality to newcomers. We are also deeply committed to reaching out and serving in our community.

Worship at St. Mark’s is full of joy, in the deepest and richest sense of that word. Worship is designed to draw us into thanking and praising God, helping us grow and learn about our Christian faith, and inspiring us to go into the world to make God’s kingdom here a better place for all people.

What to Expect

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.

Preaching is intended to make the Biblical story come alive and connect us to God and one another. All Sunday services feature the same sermon. We celebrate the seasons of the church year, including Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Pentecost, and ordinary time.

All services are inter-generational; it’s a matter of personal preference but not age!

All our worship services make use of modern technology with screens, cameras, videos and an up-to-date sound system.

The Sanctuary is equipped for hearing assistance with a looped hearing assist system and includes accessible seating for people with restricted physical abilities.

Our modern service, The Gathering, is an energetic, multi-sensory worship experience led by our Praise Team vocalists and band.

All Sunday services offer the same Scripture and message of the week.

 

Child Care

Complimentary nursery and child care is available during services, and children are also welcome in worship. Our worship includes a time with the children. In addition, on the north wall (near the organ) you’ll find a door to the infant hospitality room – a place for parents and young worshipers who may be in need of feeding, changing or comforting. Feel free to slip through that door at any time.
