Sunday School and Youth Formation

Sunday-School-4

Sunday-School-3

At 9:30 a.m. each Sunday during the school year, Christian education is provided by our dedicated staff of educators. Sunday school classes begin at age four, with three classes represented: pre-kindergarten to 2nd grade, 3rd grade to 6th grade, and 7th grade to 12th grade. There is also a non-programmatic nursery during this time for children from birth to age four.

St. Mark’s uses “Seasons of the Spirit” by Logos Press for our curriculum. Each class focuses on age-appropriate material and is lectionary-based, coordinating with the lessons during the church service. The younger students also complete a craft based on the day’s lesson.

Throughout the year, the older youth engage in different service projects to support causes. Past projects have included raising funds for wheelchairs in Africa and selling jars of brownie mix for the Heifer Project.

The parishes within Lincoln have also collaborated to provide a program called Journey to Adulthood, which provides youth with activities and Christian fellowship outside of Sunday school. For more information, please contact Fr. Jerry.
