Our story

The congregation at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church is an active body of believers seeking to grow and serve as disciples of Christ so the world may be changed through him. Come as you are. All of us do – bringing our hopes, troubles, questions and life experiences with us.

We are a local church in the Tennessee Conference of the global United Methodist Church. We got our start in 1929, just before the stock market crashed, and have ministered through times of struggle and growth ever since.

With Christ as our firm foundation, we continue to worship and serve so lives may be changed. The next chapter in the St. Mark’s story could be your own. Won’t you join us?







Your story

You can find community, wisdom and support as part of a church. The church is not a building or place to go. It is a living body that God wants you to be a part of – for God's glory and your good.

Church membership is an active, ongoing journey toward Christ. Membership vows include a promise to faithfully participate in ministry through your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness, in connection with the congregation. You’re invited to prayerfully consider joining St. Mark’s.

The Next Step class is available to orient you to The United Methodist Church and to St. Mark’s. Offered several times a year, it’s a great place for you to ask questions, talk with staff, and get to know many people and perspectives from the congregation.
