Coronavirus Situation

Because the health and safety of our church family is our highest priority, we’re making changes to our worship services and campus routines during this time of uncertainty. If you are not receiving the Friday Weekly Message from the pastor, please complete the short form at the bottom of this page, and you will automatically be added to that list.


Church Update as of April 19, 2021 

 

Come to Patio Worship

Beginning April 11 and continuing April 18 and 25, we will offer 9 a.m. in-person socially distanced worship on the west patio. Bring a chair if you are able as well as a mask. No reservations are necessary.

We will continue to offer pre-recorded worship at 9:45 a.m. every Sunday via the church website, YouTube and Facebook.

Three ways to access our pre-recorded service:

  • From the main menu on our website click WORSHIP
  • go to YouTube and search for UMC St. Mark’s Oro Valley or use this link
  • go on the St. Mark’s Facebook Page. The service will go live at 9:45 a.m. or use this link

 

Church Office Gradually Reopening

The church staff is working from the office once again, from 8:30 a.m. to noon Monday through Friday. The office door will remain locked to unplanned foot traffic, but you can call 520-297-2062 to make arrangements to meet a staff member if you need to come in. You can also leave messages at that number outside office hours. If you have an emergency, call 297-2062 and leave a message on the emergency line. A pastor is contacted immediately.

 

Hard Copies of Annual Report Available 

We have several dozen printed copies of the St. Mark’s 2020 Annual Report. If you would like one, contact the church office (297-2062 or info@umcstmarks.org) and we will set one aside for you.

 

Sign up for Zoom-Based Soul Station  

We have Zoom-launched the Soul Station Wednesday evening worship service. The format is a little different. We meet on Zoom to share music, prayer, a lesson and occasionally share the Eucharist. Soul Station over Zoom lasts about 45 minutes and starts at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesdays. We just began a new series on the book of Acts. If you are interested in being part of Zoom-based Soul Station, please email info@umcstmarks.org by 2 p.m. the Wednesday you wish to attend and the Zoom link will be sent to you.

 

Food and Supply Drives

Interfaith Community Services Food Drive

Even in these difficult times, St. Mark’s is still caring for those in our community who need it most. You may drop off non-perishable food supplies at the north church parking lot (Magee Road) from 10-11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There will be no personal contact at the collection point. Head over to our Giving page for more details.
