Children are FULL members of the body of Christ and called to worship the Lord. That's why our 9am children's hour begins and ends with worship. We start with liturgical response, prayer, sharing in the Word, and singing praises! After that, we break into our small groups for discussions, community building, personal prayer and of course, fun and games! Then we head upstairs to the main worship space for the Eucharist and return to parents.
Your child will experience a safe environment where she plays with friends, interacts with Bible stories, and receives focused attention from our staff and volunteers.
We provide an environment focused on meaningful worship and engaging instruction for and with kids.
We want your kids to LOVE Jesus and LOVE His Church! Our programming for upper elementary fosters faith and friendship.
Safety is a priority at St. Mark's. All of our volunteers and staff undergo safety training. For more information on our safety policies, click HERE. To ensure the safety of our children, we ask that all children be registered and checked into our programming in the Children's Ministry or Nursery areas.
COVID RESPONSE (updated 8.10.2021): We ask that all children and educators in our downstairs ministry area wear masks when in close contact with one another. Increased sanitizing and cleaning will occur. There are no masks required for children in our nursery. Nursery workers are masked.
Enrich your child's life by enriching the life of the church. Acolyte service, singing in the choir, volunteering in the children's ministry and Prodigal Cafe are just some of the service opportunities open to children. Contact Stacie Johnson, StM Kids Ministry Director at for more information.

Our programming is impossible without devoted volunteers. Ministry needs include greeters, teaching shepherds and special event volunteers.
We welcome all children who have been baptized to receive Holy Communion in our Eucharistic Worship Services. If your child has not been baptized, he is welcome to come forward, but please have him cross his arms at the altar rail in order to receive a blessing from our ministers.
If you'd like to learn more about infant baptism or to view information regarding adult baptism, please contact our office to schedule a meeting with one of our ministers at
