Youth Programs

 
"St. Mark's is very friendly. We have a great children's program." - Luke, Grade 7

 St. Mark's Youth are a tremendous resource of our church. We treasure them, and youth are involved in every part of St. Mark's ministries - serving in the worship, service projects for the church and local organizations, and participating in education programs. For more information about Youth events, check the church calendar. To schedule an event, please contact the church office - 610-694-0212. All youth events are conducted in accordance with the Safe Church Policy
 
Jr. Youth is for grades 4-6. They meet at least once each month and eat together, study and do a project, and enjoy fun and games. They have occasional events such as a car wash to raise funds for their group and others. 10% of everything they raise goes to a local need.
 
Sr. Youth is for grades 7-12.  They gather every two weeks on Sunday evenings and eat together, study, and play group building games. The group has pancake breakfasts for fundraisers, helps prepare meals at a local church that houses homeless women, and serves in many ways outside of church at their schools and neighborhoods. This group cares for and supports one another 100%. The Sr. Youth serve together, and their primary event of the year is the Mission Trip that provides service and learning. Recent Mission Trips have travelled to the Eastern Shore of Virginia and Rutland, Vermont. The Youth travelled to Charlestown, WV for the 2015 Mission Trip. The 2016 took us to Niagara Falls, NY. 
 
All of our youth, from the very young to those in college regularly participate in meaningful ways in worship, education, Vacation Bible School, and service. We would be much less of a community without our youth.
