Children's Christian Education - On Sundays other than the first and third Sundays of the month, when families are invited to bring their children to the "family service," a class is offered for children aged K-2nd grade during the 11 a.m. service. Children meet in the Center for lessons based on the scriptural readings assigned for that Sunday. This brings the lessons for parents and children together so that families may discuss and explore them together. Following the class, children will be escorted to church to join their parents during the Peace.
At St. Mark's, we value the importance of Christian education and formation. Under the umbrella of St. Mark's University (SMU), the following opportunities are presented throughout the year.
Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. - An engaging and freeflowing conversation looking at how life and faith intersect in our daily lives. Whether looking at scripture, discussing contemporary themes, or examining the tenets of our faith as Episcopalians, you are invited to join with others in lively conversation. The 6:00 p.m. gathering follows our 5:30 Holy Eucharist and Healing Service on Wednesday evenings and includes a simple meal. Please consult our Upcoming Events page for the current schedule.
Wandering Rector - Our "Wandering Rector" invites you to a lively discussion of topics you choose. The location and date of these coffeehouse gatherings varies from week to week. Please consult our Upcoming Events page for the current schedule.
Other Christian Education Classes - Adult education classes taught by Father Roy and others. These classes will include Sunday and weekday opportunities to deepen our faith as we journey together.
Adult Inquirers Class - Led by our Rector, this group is for adults who wish to be confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church, to be reaffirmed, or to learn more about the Episcopal Church.
