About St. Mark's UMC...

St. Mark’s is a diverse congregation. The core of its membership range in age from mid-thirties to early sixties, however in recent months there has been an increase in young professionals attending the worship service.  St. Mark’s also reflects its mission as a reconciling congregation where one can find a community that embraces all persons regardless of race, sexual orientation, life history, education, and age.

A strength of St. Mark’s is in its compassionate welcoming of all persons.  On a given Sunday you will find worshipers from all walks of life including those persons in our community who are homeless.

Some of our unique ministries...

St. Mark’s is a church that is committed to serving the homeless. While the core membership is small, they are faithful in their response to provide a weekly fellowship meal for the homeless who attend the service.  Bus tokens are provided monthly, and Walgreen’s gift cards have been made available quarterly.

While the reconciling ministry of the church is on-going, it is most visible during special events where we celebrate and support our life together as gay, lesbian , heterosexual people of faith.
