Church Habits


Welcome to the Domestic Church page of St Mark’s United Methodist Church, a vibrant faith community devoted to promoting spiritual growth and fostering connections within families. Our dedicated team of clergy, staff, and volunteers work together to create an inclusive environment where individuals of all ages can deepen their faith and experience the beauty of a strong domestic church.

The Essence of the Domestic Church

The Domestic Church, often referred to as the family, is the foundational unit of society and plays a pivotal role in shaping individuals' spiritual lives. At St Mark’s United Methodist Church, we believe that the Domestic Church serves as a vital space for nurturing faith and building strong relationships with God and one another.

Building Strong Connections

Our faith community understands the importance of fostering connections within families. We provide a range of programs, events, and workshops designed to strengthen the bonds between family members and enhance their spiritual journey together. From parent-child interactive sessions to family retreats, there are numerous opportunities for families to deepen their faith and create lasting memories.

Nurturing Faith in the Home

At St Mark’s United Methodist Church, we empower families to embrace their role as domestic churches by offering resources and support for practicing faith in the comfort of their own homes. Through regular family devotionals, grandparents mentoring programs, and intergenerational activities, we create a holistic framework that encourages spiritual growth across generations.

Fostering Spiritual Growth

Our commitment to nurturing spiritual growth extends beyond the Domestic Church itself. St Mark’s United Methodist Church offers a wide array of opportunities and programs designed to cater to individuals at every stage of their faith journey. We believe that a strong foundation in faith empowers individuals to navigate the challenges of everyday life with resilience and hope.

Worship Services and Sermons

Our church community gathers for uplifting worship services where we glorify God through music, prayer, and engaging sermons delivered by our passionate clergy. Every sermon is thoughtfully prepared to address the needs of our diverse congregation, providing inspiration and guidance for our spiritual growth. Join us for our weekly Sunday service or explore our specialized worship services and themed sermon series.

Small Groups and Bible Studies

Deepen your understanding of the scriptures and grow in fellowship through our small group sessions and Bible studies. These intimate gatherings offer a safe environment to ask questions, share insights, and build meaningful relationships with fellow church members. Our dedicated facilitators provide guidance and encourage open discussions that strengthen our collective faith.

Youth and Children's Ministries

We believe in the importance of nurturing the faith of our younger members. Our youth and children's ministries are designed to engage young hearts and minds, providing them with a solid spiritual foundation. Through age-appropriate activities, engaging lessons, and opportunities for service, we foster the development of young disciples who will carry their faith into adulthood.

Engaging Community and Society

St Mark’s United Methodist Church recognizes the significance of engaging with the broader community and society. Our faith calls us to serve and love our neighbors, extending the values of the Domestic Church beyond our church walls.

Community Outreach Programs

We actively participate in various community outreach programs, partnering with local organizations to meet the needs of the less privileged. Whether it's through food drives, community service initiatives, or supporting schools and shelters, we strive to make a positive impact and live out the teachings of Jesus in our daily lives.

Social Justice Advocacy

St Mark’s United Methodist Church is committed to promoting social justice and equality. We advocate for change, challenge systems of oppression, and actively work towards creating a more inclusive and fair society. Through education, dialogue, and collaborative efforts, we seek to address societal issues and promote true justice rooted in God's love.
