When building a home the foundation is critical, just like the spiritual foundation that is laid in the hearts of children is critical for life. The spiritual foundations we lay help to shape who they will be in their future. We, at St. Mark’s, want to plant a faith in young hearts that will grow for years to come.
Children of all ages, at St. Mark’s, have a place to learn and grow in their faith in Children’s Sunday School classes, which begin at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings. Classes are divided into age groups as follows.
- Nursery: 6 weeks through 2 year-olds
- Preschool: 3 and 4 year-olds
- Early Elementary: Kindergarten and 1st grade
- Middle Elementary: 2nd and 3rd grades
- Older Elementary (Tweens): 4th, 5th, and 6th grades
The Tweens program is a great place for kids to get involved at St. Mark’s. It is also a good introduction as to what to expect when reaching the Youth group. The Tweens group is made up of 4th, 5th and 6th graders, who gather on the 2nd Friday of every month for Tween Scene at the church from 6-9 p.m. unless stated otherwise. Information about these events can be found in the weekly calendar or in The Messenger for the month.
Tweens enjoy various activities such as missionary work, roller skating, laser tag, devotionals, Christian music, game nights and simply gathering and enjoying the company of other children of St. Mark’s.
If you or someone you know is in 4th, 5th or 6th grade, we would like to welcome you to our group so you too can grow in your faith through play, work, and worship!
