Worship Options for Sunday, July 12, 2020
We Need Your Response!
Here at St. Mark, we are committed to worshipping Jesus in faithful and responsible ways while doing everything we can to slow the spread of COVID-19. We have three worship options available for you to utilize this week: in-person, drive-thru and online. Please take a moment to let us know which worship option(s) you’ll be participating in this Sunday by taking the brief survey below.

In-Person Worship at St. Mark 
Sunday, July 12, 2020 | 10:00 am
We are planning to gather together again to worship our Lord in His house this Sunday! We want to do so with an abundance of caution in line with our State and Local health orders regarding social distancing for preventing the spread of COVID-19. Here are a few of the guidelines we will be following:
  • We will sit six feet apart from each other. Households should sit together.
  • Face coverings will be required before, during, and after the service, except for when taking communion.
  • We will do a touchless temperature scan and brief health screening prior to entering the sanctuary.
  • The service will be shortened to 30 minutes to avoid prolonged contact inside.
  • The external doors will be opened during the service to allow for outside ventilation.
  • There will be no nursery, but we will provide activities for young children to do in their seats.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the building.
10:00 am Online Live Stream 
If you are not able to attend our in-person worship service this Sunday, check out the live stream! Instead of the pre-recorded sermon and music, you will be able to view our in-person service as it happens at 10:00 am. The services can be found at stmarkencinitasYouTubechannel. Please be patient with the quality of the stream as we will be updating and adding technology to make this experience feel  “like you are there” as much as possible. The live stream will also be viewable at any time after the initial broadcast. Remember to subscribe!
11:00 am Drive-Thru Worship
For those of you who are not yet ready to return to in-person worship for any reason, we are continuing to offer drive-through service with scripture, singing, and communion! This service will take place at 11:00 am in the lower parking lot and will function much like it has for the past two months. See you at church!
