We’re glad you’re here. It’s an exciting time at St. Mark’s and the Youth Group is no exception. There are many new things happening as we are called to deeper communion with our Lord, our neighbors, and ourselves. This year in Youth Group, we will continue to meet weekly on Sunday evenings at 5:30PM in the World’s Greatest Youth Room where we will grow together in community, deepen faith, and (of course) have a lot of fun and eat some excellent food. These gatherings will directly follow the 5PM Contemplative service and we’d love to see you there. This service is a holy time that can prepare us to more meaningfully explore our faith in the context of our lives and maybe even get a taste of The Mystic Way. (our parish theme this year)
In addition to the weekly gatherings, we have other great events planned - Pumpkin’ Chunkin’ in October (for those who don’t know, that’s when we launch pumpkins with a slingshot on The Great Lawn. Yes, it’s fun), a Youth vs. Adults Flag Football game in November, service projects, two mission trips next summer, and a whole lot more that you will be hearing about over the coming weeks and months.
