Weekly Sunday morning classes are available for kids ages 4 years old through 4th grade. Kids are escorted to class following the Children’s Sermon during worship. Class is held from about 10:15 am until 11 am in Room 24. Afterwards, this group is invited for fellowship and playtime in the Nursery Area from 11 am - Noon while their parents and/or older siblings attend our after worship Sunday School hour. KidMin lessons are designed to help children discover God through Bible learning, fellowship, songs, crafts, and other fun activities geared to their age/grade level. All children are welcome!
Our nursery is available from 9:45 am to Noon on Sunday mornings. The nursery provides a loving, caring, and safe atmosphere for infants through Preschool aged children. All adults working with children at St. Mark’s UMC are Safe Sanctuaries certified. This is a United Methodist program for screening and training volunteers and staff working with children or youth. We do this to help ensure that our church is a safe place for kids of all ages to learn about God’s abiding love.
