St. Mark's United Methodist Church | 3359 Louisville Rd. Louisville, TN 37777 | Phone: 865.977. 6128 | Fax: 865.977.6154  Welcome to St. Mark’s United Methodist Church! St. Mark’s UMC seeks to make places for people to encounter the living Christ. It is our desire to become disciples and make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Through worship, study, and service, we honor the risen One. You are invited to be part of what God is doing at St. Mark’s. There are many opportunities to serve and grow in the faith with new ministries to be emerging in days ahead. There is a place here for you waiting to be discovered. We the church family, await with excitement, your arrival.



This is a time when we reflect on God’s acts in Jesus Christ. We remember what Christ did in dying for our sins. We remember how God raised him from the dead to show he has and gives life eternal. The question becomes, who has it? Who has this life? I recently saw these words from I John 5:12, “Whoever has the Son had life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” This is rather straight-forward in stating, we need to “have” the Son of God in order to have resurrection life. What does this suggest? We have the Son of God in our minds. Thus, we think about the whole human story and how his presence comes into play. We have the Son of God in our hearts to let us know we are forgiven and are in right standing in the eyes of God. We have the Son of God in our everyday lives. He empowers, he challenges us to love others as we are loved. We have the Son of God in that we have complete confidence in the work he completed by dying for us. To have Jesus Christ is to have eternal life. May we have it, may we live it out daily and bear witness to the grace of God which has given us new life and a totally new outlook on the life we live.



JOYFUL SONG, Pastor Curt



The Administrative Council met for a workshop on Saturday morning, March 25.  We discussed the characteristics of GREAT ORGANIZATIONS and applied those to becoming and being a GREAT CHURCH. We evaluated what we currently do well as a congregation, and what areas might need strengthening. To see Tom Bickers' powerpoint presentation and notes from the workshop, follow the link.
