Youth Sunday School
Youth Sunday School is designed for youth in grades 6 and older. The youth meet in the youth center after the church service to enjoy a short period of air hockey or foosball before beginning a Sunday School which involves discussions on faith in the modern world. The sessions include group activities, planning new youth events, as well as watching inspiring and thought provoking videos.
Confirmation classes are for youth entering the 7th grade (or higher) who have a desire to learn about Jesus and become members of St. Mark’s UCC. Confirmation classes meet weekly beginning September and conclude on Pentecost Sunday when the Confirmands join the church. During the year we learn about the Bible, Christian beliefs, Christian history, the role of the Church, and we will learn enough about God’s role in our lives to write our own statements of faith. Throughout the year we will take multiple field trips to visit places of worship, do some mission work, meet some interesting people, and hopefully have some fun, too. If you are interested, please email Pastor Dave firstname.lastname@example.org
Elementary Sunday School
Elementary Sunday School is similar to our youth Sunday school. It is held after the church service in the elementary rooms and is designed for kids from grades 1 to 5. Activities include Bible lessons, discussions and group activities.
Adult Sunday School
Adult Sunday School is held in Fellowship Hall at 10:15 a.m. following the gathering in the Narthex after the church service. Adult leaders present lessons based on scripture or topics of today's society which are discussed by those in attendance. Feature movies are also viewed and used as stimulus for group dialogue.
Wednesday morning, everyone is invited to Bible Study in Fellowship Hall. The text for the week is a review of the Scriptures for Sunday. The group meets at 9:30, but you're welcome to come a little earlier to get the morning cup of coffee to get you going for the day. Bring your Bible and join the rest of the group for a discussion on God's Word.
After the children's message during the church service, the children (ages 3-10) are dismissed from the service to attend Children's Church. Here they are taught Bible lessons, and participate in stories, music, and crafts plus enjoy snacks. Lay leaders present the children's message and direct the activities during Children's Church.
