Meeting Time: 9:00 am

Youth Christian Formation – Grades 6-12
Christian Formation classes for youth in grades 6-12 are at 9:00 AM in classroom E on the second floor of the St. Mark’s Education Building. The spring term will run fifteen weeks through Sunday, May 17.  The curriculum for the class will continue to be Real and Relevant.  This program is lectionary based and makes use of movie clips to foster discussion. Jamie Martin-Currie, education missioner at the Diocese of Texas, recommended this program. Real and Relevant not only provides basic scripture readings, but applications and skills that the students can apply to their daily lives. This curriculum is designed to stimulate thought and motivates the class to truly think about the lessons and the guidance given in scripture.  If you have any questions about this class, please contact Chris Abbott.  A schedule of the classes for the year ahead is available on the St. Mark’s website. Parents are welcome to attend.  The door is always open to everyone.
