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 a 3 night summer camp for our summer camp for rising 3rd-6th graders. 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!

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 2018 Pageant is December 8.  

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!

What if we found a way through our St. Mark Children’s Ministry to bring the church and the family together in order to promote the same thing at the same time for the same goal? That goal is to help children grow up to know, love, and serve Jesus all the days of their lives. Over the next few months, you are going to hear about how we will do just that.


At St. Mark, we have always valued our children. Because of that, we have continually sought ways to maintain a vibrant children’s ministry with Jesus Christ firmly rooted at the center while adapting some of our logistics to better serve families as they grow and evolve each year. With that objective in mind, we will be working over the next few months to launch a brand new children’s ministry, where the church can partner with the families. The church can provide resources and training to parents, helping parents take the lead as the spiritual leaders in their homes. Sure, we still have times for kids, students, and adults to learn on their own, but we also want to bring it all together and focus on the same thing, partnering together to better serve our children.


So what does all that mean to your children? KREW is a children’s ministry that began in 2004. Through the years, we have been blessed by countless children, parents, and volunteers. We will be forever grateful to all who participated in and served the KREW ministry. However, children and families look far different today in 2018 than they did fourteen years ago. 

January 13th will mark the launch of our brand new Children’s Ministry! Please pray for our team, our children, our families, and our church as we seek to provide a ministry opportunity that will continue to lead our children to Christ, while we work to unite two of the most powerful entities on the planet, the church and the family, combining the love of home and family with the light of Christ through the church.
