Children/Youth

Youth Ministry
St. Mark’s has an active and growing youth group.  This great group is involved in church activities, fellowship and community outreach.  In worship they serve as acolytes, readers, and they also help provide great music during the services.  In the community they hold food drives for Helping Hands, Blessing Bags for the homeless, and they volunteer to help with different organizations such as The Beacon and CUSE.  The youth of St. Mark’s grow together through Christian Formation, fellowship, bible study, and helping others.
 
Christian Formation Grades 6-12
Christian Formation classes for youth in grades 6-12 will resume on Sunday, September 11 at 9:00 AM upstairs in the Christian education building. 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. Real and Relevant not only provides basic scripture readings, but applications and skills that the students can apply to their daily lives. Each week we will continue to communicate with both the parents and youth via email and text to give everyone a preview of what to expect in that week’s lesson. If you have any questions about this class, please contact Chris Abbott.  A schedule of the classes for the year ahead is available here. Parents are welcome to attend.  The door is always open to everyone. 


 
Kids' Kingdom (Grades 1-5)

Kids’ Kingdom Christian Formation is for youth in grades 1-5. Classes will resume on Sunday, September 11 meeting upstairs in the Christian education building in classroom G.  Our study this fall will start with a study of Creation. The goal each week is to provide the students with the scripture and a lesson that has application to their daily lives. The accompanying activities are designed to be interesting, stimulating and something that will help the children remember and internalize the Bible story.  Please contact Chris Abbott with any questions about the Kids’ Kingdom program.  A calendar for classes is available here.
