Youth Mission Statement
As Saint Mark youth, we believe that Jesus is the light to the world and a role model for how we show unconditional love toward one another.
We come together to learn about God’s Word, God’s Grace and witness for Jesus Christ.
Saint Mark offers programs to foster growth and faith development to our youth. We strive to encourage one another and build each other up as we reach out to the community through mission and through our own spiritual journey.
Due To COVID . . .
For decades, our Saint Mark youth ministry has been successful in growing young disciples and releasing them into adulthood as followers of Jesus. The draw for youth in our community has been the Wings for the Lord youth choir that has ministered to our church, community and other parts of our country for 25 years. From Wings came a liturgical movement group called In His Eyes. Weekday programming has provided a sense of community among the youth. They have also been very active in offering their time and talents in service to the community.
But, due to the pandemic, most programs within our youth ministry have had to be modified or suspended to keep our youth safe.
We are planning to search for and hire a trained professional in the area of family ministries who will coordinate our ministries to children, youth and families. We believe in the critical importance of forming and shaping the hearts and lives of our youth so that they will become lifelong followers of Jesus.
When circumstances are such that our youth are safe to return to in-person church, we will once again provide a variety of ways to help our youth grow into devoted disciples.
