Welcome to St Mark's UCC
We are a church that provides a traditional worship experience with blended elements, including contemporary music, lay scripture readings and occasional live musical performances and drama. For families with young children, there is nursery care from 9 until 10 a.m. during the worship service. A children's message is presented early in the worship service, followed by Children's Church for the remainder of the hour. A "Meet & Greet" with coffee and refreshments is held each Sunday in the Narthex following the worship experience.

Sunday Service In Person Update
A letter was sent to the congregation with the special protocols and is below. Masks will be required and social distancing will be emphasized. Extra cleanings are occurring. Hymnals and Bibles are removed from the pews. And all chairs and tables have been removed from the narthex to encourage all visitation to occur outside, not inside. These are just a few of the items of change. These are being done to protect each and everyone with safety in the forefront of all decisions.
If you're not quite ready to join us in person, that's ok. The service will continue to be live streamed through Facebook Live.
Also, the service will be shared through the Conference call system. The Conference call system can be accessed by dialing
215-383-1625 Conference Code 569284
NOTE: This is a long distance toll number so make sure your phone has long distance included
The letter below details the current policies for that reopening.
An addendum to the letter about Congregational Singing:
Because we are trying to keep everyone safe, we are requesting no singing in the sanctuary. We will have one designated song leader for the hymns. The remainder of the congregation can participate in “a hum-along.” We appreciate your cooperation.
