Children are significant members of the St. Mark’s community, so we strive to create an environment of love and acceptance, helping them to know Christ and make Him known. As servants of God we humbly accept the responsibility of nurturing the faith of children while honoring their individual and collective gifts.
Our Sunday School program gives each child a personalized experience. We have the wonderful opportunity to teach to each child’s interests and level of understanding. This reinforces that they are known and cared for in our church community. Our curriculum explores the stories of the Bible and teaches church traditions. The lessons are taught using crafts, legos, blocks, and other activities that encourage conversations about the themes being discussed.
Due to the current Covid-19 restrictions, we are not meeting in the classroom until it is deemed safe for us to gather together. Since the spring, we have been holding weekly Zoom meet-ups to help the class to continue feeling connected. We are assembling monthly theme boxes and delivering them to our Sunday School families. These boxes include stories and crafts that assist families in nurturing their children’s faith. If you have any questions, or wish to try a Sunday School Theme box, please contact Judie Hilton at JAKhilton@gmail.com or Rev. Suzanne Wade at email@example.com.
When we return to in-person worship, Sunday School will meet during the first part of the church service on Sunday mornings, with the children joining their families in church for communion.
