Registration Form for 2017-2018
(children and youth can be registered on the same form)
Our vision at St. Mark’s is for children to receive Jesus Christ and grow in him as they are welcomed into the life of the church through worship, the hearing of God’s Word and participation in the Eucharist.
Children begin in gathering time where we center our hearts and minds to hear and receive the Gospel, pray together, sing praises to our Lord, and develop (and explain) the habits of the liturgy.
After our large-group worship, children are dismissed to their breakout rooms where they engage with God’s word in grade level, small group discussions, responses, and Bible teaching with their leaders.
First Sunday of the Month
On the first Sunday of the month our children join us for the beginning of Worship. We sit together in the first few pews. With child-friendly bulletins we learn the liturgy and practice our faith. We stay until the Gospel is read and received, then process out of the sanctuary to resume our Sunday school activities in the classrooms.
On all Sundays children return to parents during the worship service after having received a blessing or the Eucharist.
