St. Mark’s offers many ways for your child to experience the love of God and learn about Jesus. We provide a friendly, safe environment for all children to grow in faith.

Christian education

In partnership with parents, children’s classes provide guidance for children to grow in faith.

Safe Sanctuaries practices are followed, so a parent or guardian must sign a child in and out of the classroom.

Children's classes

Wednesday Night Praise

Children ages four years through fifth grade can exercise their talents as they grow in faith in Wednesday Night Praise. Grouped by age, children rotate through creative music, movement, Bible lesson and awesome art activities. W.N.P. rocks during the school year on – you guessed it – Wednesday nights from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m. Register your child for Wednesday Night Praise.



The St. Mark’s nursery provides care to children ages three months up to four years. Our staff and volunteers are dedicated to showing Christ’s love to each child.

We encourage and celebrate the baptism of infants and children, as it marks their inclusion in God’s church and recognizes God’s grace is already at work in their lives.

The baptismal covenant is connectional—it is made in public and the St. Mark’s congregation vows to support and nurture your family as you raise your child in faith. Contact a pastor about baptism.





Summer brings opportunities for children to enjoy the sun and, more importantly, to grow in the Son – Jesus Christ. Christian Education continues, and other events, such as an arts camp or local mission projects, are announced as they are planned.

St. Mark’s pulls out all the stops for Vacation Bible School adventures for children. VBS creates excitement and engages children in Christian growth through crafts, recreation, music, age-appropriate lessons and service activities.  Sign up now for VBS!

For many children, the experience of summer camp at Cedar Crest can be life changing. Children meet God in community and worship with other campers, while also enjoying activities from swimming and canoeing to crafts and campfires. St. Mark’s provides partial scholarships to children of members because we know God works in their lives through the camp experience.
