Christian Formation for Youth

Children, like adults are formed as Christians through worship, education and service. St. Mark's offers Nursery and Christian education during the 10:00 a.m. service (September-June). Children join their parents to share in the Eucharist at the exchange of the Peace.


Children are always welcome to worship with their parents. There are special bulletins available for those in second grade and under to look at and color. The natural noise they make is often more evident to their parents than the rest of us. If they need a break please feel free to take them for a walk but be sure to return to worship.

St. Mark's currently uses Sparkhouse Holy Moly & Connect programs as the basis for lessons. Classes are led by a dedicated team of Christian formation leaders.

Children are invited to participate in liturgical ministries (choir, acolyte) and various parish outreach projects including the giving of gifts at Christmas to those in our community who otherwise would go without.

If you have any questions about our youth formation program please speak with the Rev'd Susan Wrathall.
