Come Home to Saint Mark
We at Saint Mark United Methodist Church are fortunate to be prominently located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta at the corner of Peachtree and Fifth Streets. Our three red doors make the church easy to recognize and we take great pride in making sure those doors are open to our neighbors of all ages, races, and life situations. Our church is known for its extensive mission programs (link), its wonderful children and youth programs(links), and its fantastic music and fine arts programs (link). If these programs are of interest to you, we hope you will feel welcome to explore the site and find opportunities to visit and get to know us better. We would love to meet you, and we think you will be pleased with the Spirit that you find. It might even be a homecoming for you. But ministries are only a part of our story. The most important part of Saint Mark is our people: their caring, their openness, and their willingness to be in service to the world. Our motto – Loving, Accepting, Serving – truly describes who we are and how we do church.
