The youth at St. Mark are an important component of who we are as a church. In turn, we as a church play a crucial role in the faith formation of our youth. To this end, our Junior High Youth Group (grades 6-8) and Senior High Youth Group (grades 9-12) meet for fellowship, faith-forming and faith-building discussion, outings and adventures, service projects, VA Synod-sponsored events, youth-led worship services, and more.

 

Additionally, we offer family events about every two months, such as Christmas caroling, egg coloring, picnics, and game nights. St. Mark is fortunate to have a large and growing population of young families and youth; we are very committed to helping and encouraging these young people to develop deep and lasting roots in faith.

 

We are in the process of hiring a new Director of Youth and Family Ministry. The Director of Youth and Family Ministry works with the Pastor(s), staff, lay leaders and others to support the spiritual health of the congregation and specifically the youth, primarily middle and high school age. Provides a connection between the St. Mark family and the growing number of youth.
