Mission Statement

St. Mark’s Youth group strives to provide a safe place for young people to explore their faith through worship, Bible Study, Community Outreach, and relationship building. We believe that the church belongs to us and we strive to offer leadership opportunities for children and youth of all ages!

We believe that everyone is loved by God and we are called to share that love in the world.

We accept one another as we are, and we trust God’s love to help us grow into the people we were created to be.

All are welcome here!
