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, January 24th, 2021

Today, Sunday, January 24th, we will be in the third week of our 4-week sermon series, “Re-New.” This week will focus on the parable of “The Rich Fool” in the sermon titled, “Re-Store.” Cletis will be preaching in both traditional worship services and Kenn will preach in the Refuge. Out of an abundance of caution, we will NOT celebrate communion in any of our worship services.

The 8:30 Traditional Worship and 11:00 Refuge Contemporary services will both be live-streamed. You can join us online by clicking on the “Worship Now” button at the top of our home page. Just scroll down to click on the button for the service you wish to view. We hope to see you there!

As a reminder, we do require masks in the 8:30 am Traditional service and encourage them in our other services as well.

NEW: We are asking if you attend the 8:30 am Traditional service, that you please wear a mask. This helps our members attend safely. If you prefer to not wear a mask, please come to our 10:45 or 11:00 services. 

Bulletins for Sunday, January 24th, 2020: In an effort to help make worshipping from home as authentic as possible, we have made the bulletins for all three worship services available here. The link will open a Google Drive folder in which you can select the bulletins for the service you wish to attend.

Sunday School: All of our Adult Sunday school classes are back in-person. If you have questions about your specific class, please contact your class leaders.

We are also offering a new Family Sunday School Experience in the Refuge space at 9:30 am for a light breakfast. Children and Youth will be dismissed to their classes where they will engage in a lesson based on the reading. Your whole family will be learning the same story/verse which we hope will lead to a great discussion at home.

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

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.
