We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, when we use a cookie to identify you, you would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.


This website contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of such other sites. St. Mark’s UMC encourages our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of any other site that collects personally identifiable information.


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever St. Mark’s UMC collects sensitive information (such as credit card information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to a credit card processor (such as Vanco or Breeze) in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While St. Mark’s UMC uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, the church also protects your information offline. Only employees or volunteers who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
