Where Mission is a Way of Life

St. Mark’s is a community of followers of Jesus Christ that strives to WELCOME all people, GROW in knowledge and grace and SERVE our neighbors, locally and globally.

St. Mark’s United Methodist Church was established in 1979 with the commitment to be a “missional” congregation intentionally seeking, finding and ministering to the needs of our neighbors near and far. With additional values of hospitality and generosity, the ministry has grown to extend around the world as well as into the places where we work, play and become family.

As a United Methodist Congregation, we are conscious of our rich tradition and variety. Our purpose grows from the ministry of Jesus and the continuing witness of the Church through the ages. We take our history seriously, for it reminds us not only of who we are but more importantly, whose we are.
