St. Mark’s is committed to bringing all people to a transformative relationship with Christ, through diverse and creative worship, education, and ministry. This is clearly evident in the Youth Ministry program. Through weekly programming and numerous events throughout the year we seek to create an inclusive, hospitable, compassionate, and nurturing community where youth from all backgrounds share relationships that can grow into the full stature of Christ. They will be empowered for ministry in their daily life; and by practicing mutual accountability through creative Christian formation programs, participate meaningfully in ministries, missions, and outreach in the San Antonio community and beyond.

Weaving God’s Promises is a three year Christian education curriculum developed and written exclusively for the Episcopal Church. All youth will come together every Sunday morning during the formation hour in the Youth Suite. We will utilize activities, prayer, and fellowship to learn how God’s promises of salvation are inextricably woven into our lives. Once a month, youth will take a break from our lectionary-based curriculum to learn about different spiritual practices that can give us tangible tools to incorporate into our prayer lives.
