Youth

St. Mark’s UMC offers a wide variety of opportunities for 6th-12th grade students, designed to both nurture their faith and put that faith into action.

Our recently updated youth room provides a relaxing, comfortable place where our youth explore how Christ’s message relates to their lives. Our hands-on service projects this past year included serving dinner to the homeless, building wheelchairs ramps on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona, collecting much-needed supplies for 50 refugee babies, and more!

Parents, grandparents and guardians, we recognize that you are the primary faith leader for your children. Our program includes family activities and regular updates. To get on our email list, please contact our Director of Youth and Inter-generational Ministries, Kris Nieder, at
