“…Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Luke 18:16
At St. Mark’s, we value our youngest members and are deeply committed to the spiritual development of our children and families.
Through weekly programming, as well as special events and activities throughout the year, we strive to provide a loving, safe environment in which children can grow in faith and in their relationships with others. Our Children and Family Ministries serve children from birth to 5th grade.
- Sundays 8.30am-11.15am
- Located in the Parish House on the 1st floor
- Age 6 weeks - 5 yrs old
We believe that children learn to worship by participating in worship services, so children of all ages are always welcome in church. We also know that young children need a time and place to play, so our nursery is available throughout all Sunday morning activities. Our trained nursery staff will lead children in age-appropriate lessons and activities, play and snack time while parents participate in the worship service and adult formation.

Children’s Chapel provides an opportunity for children to worship in a way that is fun and meaningful for them. They will hear a Bible story from the lectionary texts of the day and participate in prayers, activities, and songs that reinforce the story’s message.
Children will be led back to the Sanctuary to rejoin their families during the Passing of the Peace.
