The Connection

Children's Ministry         

The children's ministry at St. Mark UMC is jam packed with all sorts of fun ways to worship and grow in our relationship with Christ.  Our awesome leaders are all about having fun with our kids while leading them on a path to a growing and deeper relationship with Jesus.  Through VBS, KREW, Camp KidJam, the annual Christmas pageant, Easter Family Fun Day, and lots of other special events, our kids have a blast!  Come be a part of our family!

CAMP KIDJAM is our summer camp for rising 3rd-6th graders.  A three night residential camp, CKJ is as high energy as it gets!  Through enormous worship, carefully crafted Bible story production, games, and small group time, our kids explode with Jesus's love at CKJ!  Registration  is OPEN NOW!!!  CKJ 2018 is June 12-15.

Catch updates and recent pictures on our Facebook page, St. Mark UMC Children's Ministry!

EACH YEAR, we offer an exciting 9:00 am  - noon Vacation Bible School.  Join hundreds of kids from the church and the community as we dive into a theme driven, Christ centered week full of faith, fun, and fellowship.  Pre-registration begins in April and is preferred so that we can make sure all our VBS friends have a shirt, crafts, goodies, snacks, and more waiting on them when VBS kicks off!

It's Christmas in July around here, because that's when we start planning our Children's Christmas Pageant.  All children K5-5th grade are encouraged to take part in this traditions.  An old-fashioned, traditional Christmas pageant will get you in the Christmas spirit like nothing else. The 2017 Pageant is December 9.  

JOIN US FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL - 10:00 am!!!  We have the perfect class for your child!  We use the Deep Blue Kids curriculum, and the children LOVE it!  Join the DEEP BLUE kids in their treehouse, and see what they have to teach and share!

KREW - Kids Really Excited about Worship - is our Sunday night (5:00-6:30) ministry for toddlers through 5th graders. Our toddlers experience Jesus's love in a very special way through story, play, and small crafts in PLAYKREW. Our younger children, K3-K5, are our KREWKATEERS. Through song, dance, small group time, and a puppet ministry, our youngest children learn all about the love that God has for us. Our older kids, 1st-5th graders, experience high energy worship, skits, and small group time as part of SUPERKREW. KREW meets Labor Day through Palm Sunday.
