Welcome to the St. Mark Youth Group!

We are excited to announce that we have implemented Life Teen at St. Mark!  We’ve had successful junior and senior high school youth groups for years now, and this was an excellent opportunity for us to take our youth ministry program to the next level.  We hope to see you there!

Our Mission

The mission of the St. Mark Youth Group is to come together as the youth of St. Mark Church in a safe and confidential environment where we can talk with peers about the issues that we face, discuss our morals and values, and make connections with our church community through a variety of activities and prayer. The Youth Groups for middle school and high school students recognize Christ at the center of their lives through prayer, worship, service projects and social activities that help them to form a bond of fellowship and grow in faith.
