Leading the next generation.

At St. Mark’s, our children and youth learn the truth about who God is and who they are because of Him. Our goal is to partner with parents to lead the next generation to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Infants & Toddlers

We know how important your children are to you. They are important to us, too! That’s why we provide families with a wide range of options to help them worship and grow in their faith together.

Family Chapel & Mother’s Room

We understand that going places with a new baby can be stressful. That is why we offer parents several options to enable you to participate in worship, while also attending to the needs of your infants and children.

Our Family Chapel allows you and your family to watch the service in comfort, while the Mother’s Room allows mothers and infants to watch the service in comfort and privacy.

Infant & Toddler Nurseries

Our clean and secure Infant Nursery is open every Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.  Children who are 6 months through crawling receive high levels of care and attention from our nurturing and qualified staff.

Children who are walking through 4 years old receive high levels of care and attention in our Toddler Nursery.

 

Children’s Church

Each Sunday during the school year, Children’s Church offers young children an opportunity to learn Bible stories as as they have fun interacting with one another and the elements of worship.

Sunday School

Infant & Toddlers

Children 3 and under, along with their parents, enjoy a time of singing, dancing, praying, and reading the bible together.

Pre-K thru Kindergarten

Age-specific lessons capture the attention and imagination of preschoolers and Kindergarteners, while fun activities help them learn essential stories from the Bible.

Elementary

During their elementary years, children experience a teaching style they can relate to while connecting with others invested in their future and faith.

Middle School

Catechism class is offered each Sunday for 7th & 8th grade students who desire to affirm the promises of faith through Confirmation.

High School

During the Sunday school hour, high school students are encouraged to actively engage in the life of the congregation by singing with the Choir or assisting the adult leaders of our younger Sunday school classes.
