Helping parents lead the next generation of Christ-followers.

Preparing you & your child for eternity.

St. Mark’s is committed to providing parents with the prayer, support, training and resources they need throughout their child’s faith development.

Each Milestone marks a milestone in your child’s life from Baptism through high school graduation.

Five Principles

  • Faith is formed by the power of the Holy Spirit through personal trusted relationships—primarily in our own homes.
  • The church is a living partnership between the ministry of the congregation and ministry of the home.
  • Where Christ is present in faith, the home is church, too.
  • Faith is caught more than it is taught.
  • If we want Christian children and youth, we need Christian parents and adults.

Four Key Practices

  • Caring Conversations
  • Devotions
  • Service
  • Rituals and Traditions
