Children's Ministry

The Children at Saint Mark play an active role in worship and also in our different ministries. We have a wide range of programs for your children/students to participate in. We want this to be an amazing experience for you and your child. If you have questions or need assistance please contact our church office.

Sunday School

Sunday school at Saint Mark is held every Sunday from 9:40AM-10:30AM for children age 2 through 6th grade. Children are divided in to age-appropriate classrooms with dedicated Sunday school teachers.

For our 3K-4K class we use the curriculum DiscipleLand. This curriculum teaches children the love of God and life of Jesus through interactive Bible stories, music, crafts and games.

For our 5K-6th grade classes we use Cokesbury “Deep Blue” curriculum which is based on the award-winning Deep Blue Kids Bible. This curriculum incorporates thrilling Bible stories, videos, music, crafts, and games into a full faith experience to teach children what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.

Parents are always welcome to attend with their children. We hope to see you Sunday!

Nursery

On Sunday morning we offer an excellent Nursery program for infants –2 year olds. Toddlers participate in a Bible story designed for their age group. They also participate in a Music and Arts & Crafts time. This program is offered for our 8:30AM and 10:45AM services, during our Sunday school hour, and also on Wednesday Nights during Bible Study. Our Nursery staff hopes to see your infant or toddler on Sunday Mornings and Wednesday Nights!

Quest

Our Quest program is designed for our 4th-6th grade students. Quest is from 4:30PM-7PM on Sunday nights. It is a time where we come together to fellowship, dive into God’s word and learn what it means to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. We work on mission projects that benefit not only our community, but others. Activities include a Bible study, mission projects, food, and organized recreational games.

Wonderful Wednesday

Wonderful Wednesday are held on Wednesday nights from 5:30PM-7:30PM. It is a time where students/children come together to participate in Choir, Worship Arts, and also small group Bible studies and mission projects.

We have two children’s choirs that rehearse and learn new songs on Wednesday nights. Our 4 year olds through 1st graders are called the “Sonrise Choir”. Our 2nd-6th graders are called the “Mission 108 Choir.” Both choirs are able to share the songs they have learned in different events and worship services throughout the year.

The Worship Arts program is a time designed for our 1st-6th grade students. They are able to participate in a Drum Circle, Handbells, or Dance class. Students will be able to share what they have learned by being a part of the Worship services.

The Small Group Bible Study is a time for children to divide into age-appropriate class rooms. During this time children will participate in a Bible Study and/or mission project.

On Wednesday nights our 2-5 year olds are placed into age-appropriate worship areas. In these areas children are allowed to play games, put together puzzles, and read books while learning about the love of God. Children will participate in a Bible Study, music, and craft time. Our 4-5 year olds participate in the Sonrise Choir.

Nursery is provided for our Infants and one year olds.

Children’s Choirs: “Sonrise” and “Mission 108”

These children present anthems in worship, present two musicals each year, participate in Music & Arts Week at Camp Sumatanga and a Children’s Choir Festival. The Festival is for children grades 1-6 and is a District event. We hope that your child/children will join one of the choirs at Saint Mark so that they can participate in these fun events and share God’s Word through songs.
