Welcome!  Please join us!

Youth Group meets for service projects, for spiritual nourishment, and for fun and games! Contact Lily Dodge, Children & Youth Minister, ( for more information.

The Saint Mark’s Youth Ministry welcomes our youth to grow in faith and maturity by learning about the wisdom of our Christian tradition and incorporating these values into their lives.

Teens are loved, supported, and inspired to safely and confidently explore the world around them, to learn from each other and to strengthen their awareness of God’s love.

Get to Know God

We teach our youth a working knowledge of the Episcopal tradition and practice, exploring tools, practices and concepts that they can use in their lives.



Saint Mark’s encourages youth to participate in our “Confirm not Conform” program to prepare for Confirmation, affirming the vows made at their Baptism.

Outreach teens

become leaders

Through such regular volunteer opportunities as serving dinners, writing letters and traveling to summer mission trips, Saint Mark’s youth are engaged in God’s calling to help others.
