Children's Ministry: Pre-k through 5th Grade

Children's Church (3 years old - 5th grade)

Children are invited to attend Children's Church on Sunday, Wednesday, or both! Unique education opportunities include exploring God’s stories in the Bible with real life, practical applications through art, science, technology and so much more!  Each session offers a separate and unique experience so that families can choose to attend both without it feeling repetitive. A special pre-teen class is offered just for 5th graders. Children's Church is offered on Sundays at 10:30 am and on Wednesdays at 6:30 pm.

  • The Grace Space & Activity Bags in Worship  A quiet play space in the Sanctuary for children up to 5 years old is open throughout each worship service. Parents are encouraged to sit near their children as they play. The Grace Space is located at the front of the church near the large windows. If your children prefer to remain with you in the pews, activity bags are available in the Narthex. 
  • Nursery Sometimes your little one just needs a break. Our nursery space is open for you to use during every worship service and is stocked for children from birth to 3 years old. The nursery is located across from the restrooms in Rees Hall. Parents are expected to supervise their children in this space.   


NEW! Baby Book Club 

Families with children ages birth to 3 years old are invited to join us in the nursery for an interactive time of storytelling around helpful and faithful board books one Sunday a month from 9:35-10:20 am. We’ll read a book together, engage in a simple activity and connect with one another as we grow in God’s grace.


Vacation Bible School (Summer)

St. Mark's offers a week of fun, learning, singing, and playing during Vacation Bible School. Each year has a different theme and provides a great way for kids to interact with each other during the summer break. VBS is offered one week during the summer (TBD)  from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, Monday through Friday.
