High school

Our youth group program at St. Mark's is an engaging and inspiring way for young people to make meaningful connections with their faith and their peers. Through weekly meetings, special events, and service projects, we strive to create an environment in which young people feel comfortable expressing themselves and connecting with their faith. We also provide resources and support to help them navigate the difficulties of growing up and finding their place in the world. We offer a safe space to learn and grow, both spiritually and socially. It is our mission to educate and equip our youth with the tools to become engaged, active members of their faith community.

Small Groups

Small groups are the backbone of what we believe in. Our small group time helps us to foster close relationships and intergral community, making our atmosphere ready-made for building lasting friendships all while learning more about Christian faith. Our "ask away" philosophy and eagerness to delve into contemporary topics makes this group great for students ranging in their faith journey.

When do we meet?

We do bible study, games, discussions, media, mission trips, service projects, summer camp and worship. We are committed to reaching each and every youth in a Christ-centered and fun way. 

Youth 5th grade -8th grade are welcome to join us weekly during the school year and for special events throughout the summer including summer camp. Our meeting day and time is 10:30AM Sunday's after worship. Watch for updates at the church for food, fun, and faith!!!
