Children’s formation is an important part of our parish family life. We want children to know God’s unconditional love for them and feel free to wonder out loud and ask questions about what it means to be a follower of Jesus in the 21st century. Our primary vehicle for Children’s formation is Godly Play—a Montessori-based program that immerses participants in the stories of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament. Godly Play begins at 10:15 a.m. and children are brought up to join the congregation for the celebration of the Eucharist at the exchange of the peace. Godly Play is open to all children ages 4-12. Please contact Brooke Parker (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
Nursery care is available from 10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. on Sunday for children under 4. The nursery is optional, and St. Mark’s welcomes the sounds of young children during its worship.
