At St. Mark’s, we strive to create a space where everyone can experience the holy. This includes our youngest members! Our children's programs offer kids a safe, fun, and nourishing environment to experience Christian community and explore the Church’s rich heritage both on Sunday and during special occasions throughout the year.
Welcome to Worship
Please be assured that your child, fidgets and all, are fully welcome in this worshipping community. We invite them to pray with their bodies -- coloring, tracing, using other quiet manipulatives; standing, sitting on the floor, however they come. They are also invited to participate in liturgical jobs (like lighting candles, carrying up the bread and wine for Eucharist, offering the dismissal, etc). Over time, they will learn the rhythms of liturgy simply by being present, and will begin to participate in various ways as they grow. By children’s presence in worship, adults deepen their understanding of the Body of Christ and learn how to be joyfully embodied.
