Welcome to St. Mark’s United Methodist Church!

We are thrilled to have you worship with us, either in person or in this new world of “distance connecting.” We really want to be a place where you can make a genuine connection with God and with other people.
Whether you are a committed Christian, or just beginning to ask the “God Questions”, we hope your time with us is spiritually refreshing. 
 
Grace and Peace to you, 
Pastor Kenn Munn,
St. Mark’s UMC, Baytown

 

Please stay safe, and let us know how we can assist you during this time. We know that God is sovereign and has a plan to give us a hope and a future. During this time of uncertainty, please stay connected with your church family and consider these three things: worship now, pray now, and give now. 

WORSHIP NOW – Sunday, August 2nd, 2020 

This Sunday, August 2nd – Communion Sunday

We are continuing to hold our worship experiences in-person and have them available to watch at home. We also are still offering Sunday School classes at 9:30 for all age groups. Classes are meeting in-person but some also offer a virtual experience via Zoom if you would like to join in from home. View more on the FAQ page below (Question #5).

We have 3 worship experiences:
8:30 am – Traditional Service in the Sanctuary (Youtube Live-Stream)
10:45 am – Traditional Service in the Sanctuary 
11:00 am – Refuge Contemporary Service in the North Activity Center (Youtube Live-Stream)

In conjunction with this Sunday’s sermon, we will be having Communion in all 3 worship services. We will be taking extra precautions, with those participating wearing masks and gloves. In addition to those receiving communion at our in-person worship services, we would like to encourage those worshipping from home to participate with us. We sent out the recipe for Soda Bread to the Weekly Update Email sent on Tuesday. We have also made the recipe available here below. We will use this recipe during communion in our services in-person this Sunday as well. It is meaningful, if as a church, we are all partaking of the same bread. If you will be joining us via our online worship on Sunday, we hope you will take a little time, prepare the bread and join us as we celebrate Holy Communion on Sunday.

We will live-stream BOTH the 8:30 am Traditional Worship Service and the 11:00 am Refuge Service to allow you to join us at home. The services will be posted on our Youtube Channel after they end for you to watch at any time.

Please be mindful when deciding if you’d like to join us in person or stay home and worship remotely. We encourage you to make the decision that is best for your health and your household. Thank you for your faithful participation in worship no matter where you are worshipping from. 

If you have any reason at all to be concerned with your health or that of your household, we sincerely ask you to stay home and worship remotely by watching either of our live-streams. Those who do feel comfortable assuming the risk of attending worship in person are asked to social distance, use hand sanitizer, and wear masks as appropriate.

Below, you will find the link to some Frequently Asked Questions for you to review prior to coming to church on Sunday. We have also prepared a short video to give you an idea of how we are preparing for your return and the precautions we are taking to keep everyone safe. Please click here to view the video. You can click the photos below for the service you wish to stream, or click the “Worship Now” button at the top of our site.
