St. Mark UMC Sunday 11:15 AM
St. Mark United Methodist Church is located in the Churchland area of Portsmouth at 4320 Twin Pines Road. We are a diverse congregation that reflects the neighborhoods around us and we have several languages spoken by members. We are contemporary looking, so our LED sign and the cross on the building will be the easiest ways to identify us. Our worship is at 11:15 with Sunday Bible Study starting at 9:45. Our worship style is a blend of contemporary and traditional liturgy and a mixture of music styles.
Our Sunday School study for adults is a little different, rather than a teacher, they have leaders that guide a conversation style type of learning and welcomes everyone’s opinions. They generally focus on one book of the Bible at a time and do not stay away from the tough ones like Revelation.
We also have Sunday Bible study for children. Not only do they learn sound Biblical principles and ways of living but the class also introduces them to serving others by taking on missions that they can easily do for their young ages, but still be proud of.
We have a strong men’s group which meets on the second Sunday of each month for breakfast, sometimes at the church sometimes in a local restaurant. The Boy Scout Troop meets on Tuesday nights, except for the summer months.
Exciting things go on at St. Mark and if you are looking for a small church where you can make friends and is diverse, then we are your church.
We regularly hold family meals, mostly after worship. Many times we come together to celebrate special days like St. Patrick’s Day, Fat Tuesday, etc and we can find just about any reason to have a time of fellowship and a meal. Watch our sign, calendar and Facebook page for upcoming events and you are always welcome.
