New Here?


Welcome to St. Mark’s United Methodist Church! It is our joy to welcome you and to tell you how God is moving in our community of faith. We’re glad you’re interested in finding out more about us.
We’ve been a part of the Woodland Heights community for 75 years, with Houston roots that stretch back to 1875. As a United Methodist Church, the heart of our theology is grace that surrounds each and every one of us before we even considered turning toward God. We believe that our faith grows stronger in a community where we can experience belonging, acceptance and guidance. Our response to grace is to show God’s love in our words and actions.
Below are some frequently asked questions about what to expect on Sunday mornings. If you have other questions, please contact Pastor Emily Chapman.

Where to find us?

600 Pecore, Houston, TX. Our Sanctuary faces Pecore and our church office entrance is off Redan Street. Parking is in behind the building or on Pecore or Redan Streets and the grass lawn beside the LOVE mural.

What should I expect?

Our weekly worship includes congregational singing, the reading of scripture, prayer, choral and instrumental music, moments of silence for reflection and listening to God, and a message that seeks connect the Bible to our lives as individuals and as a community of faith.

Worship is held in our historic Sanctuary building. The 1940 building is filled beauty and awe and wonder and draws your eyes up to vaulted ceiling and sunlit stained glass. The building has the power to move you, but we hope and pray you will be moved more by the people who gather in the pews with you to celebrate God’s presence in our lives.. We offer two worship services on Sunday mornings, 8:30AM and 10:50AM.

What should I wear?

You are welcome to come just as you are — some people wear shorts or jeans and other people wear a suit and tie —come in whatever way is comfortable for you! We think you’ll fit in, no matter how you dress.

What about my Children?

Children’s Sunday School is offered from 9:30-10:30 AM. A nursery is provided for children, infants and toddlers all morning, during each service and Sunday School in the Children’s Building (to the right as you enter the gate from the parking lot). Children --their laughter, tears, and joyful noises – are abundantly welcome in our worship and community of faith!. Children’s Church is offered for children ages 4 years to 3rd grade during the 10:50 worship service following the children’s moment. Children are escorted to Children’s Building Room 205, where they worship in a specially designed children’s worship experience. They will return to the sanctuary to you after the sermon.
