Welcome to St Mark’s United Methodist Church, a vibrant community and society dedicated to faith and beliefs. We invite you to explore the profound scripture of Deuteronomy 6:4-7 with us.
Understanding the Significance
Deuteronomy 6:4-7 holds immense importance for believers seeking to deepen their spirituality and connect with God on a profound level. Let us delve into the profound understanding this scripture offers.
The Shema: A Powerful Affirmation of Faith
Deuteronomy 6:4 establishes the foundational belief of monotheism: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one." This declaration, known as the Shema, serves as a powerful affirmation of faith and unity with God.
Embracing the Shema, St Mark’s United Methodist Church brings the community together in acknowledging the oneness and supreme authority of God. We believe that by following the teachings of Deuteronomy 6:4-7, we enable a closer relationship with the divine.
A Call to Teach and Nurture
In Deuteronomy 6:5-7, believers are urged to love God with all their heart, soul, and strength. This instructs us to engage in a lifelong journey of spiritual growth and connection with the Almighty.
St Mark’s United Methodist Church offers a nurturing community that supports individuals in their pursuit of a deep and meaningful relationship with God. Through our services, sermons, and small group ministries, we provide a space for worship, learning, and collective spiritual growth.
Applying the Teachings
The teachings of Deuteronomy 6:4-7 extend beyond mere understanding; they call for active application in our daily lives. At St Mark’s United Methodist Church, we place great emphasis on living out these sacred teachings.
Family Devotions and Education
Deuteronomy 6:7 encourages parents to diligently teach their children about God's commandments, discussing them at home, on the road, and before going to sleep.
Recognizing the importance of family and the passing on of faith, St Mark’s United Methodist Church offers various programs aimed at equipping parents and caregivers with resources to guide their children's spiritual growth. Our Sunday School, youth groups, and family-oriented events create opportunities for families to bond and explore the teachings of the Bible together.

Deuteronomy 6:7 also emphasizes the importance of engaging with the wider community. St Mark’s United Methodist Church actively participates in community outreach initiatives, demonstrating God's love through acts of service and compassion.
Through our partnerships with local organizations, we strive to address social issues, promote justice, and support those in need. Our mission trips, food drives, and volunteer opportunities enable us to live out the teachings of Deuteronomy 6:4-7 by loving our neighbors as ourselves.
