High School Bible Study
Gather in the chapel on Wednesday nights from 7:30 - 8:30 pm to take a look at God’s word and to explore how we can be a part of what God is doing in our world. The goal is to create a place where senior high students encounter God, grow in their faith through Christ-centered relationships and experiences. Whether your faith is already a vital part of your life, or you've never given spiritual truth much thought, there's a place for you at this Bible study.
St. Mark’s believes strongly that mission work not only helps others, but gives back to the youth and adults involved through faith development, the chance to build new relationships, and the commitment to serve the church, community and world. Recent trips include experiences in rural and innercity environments around the country along with international opprotunities in Iringa, Tanzania and India. This summer, the youth will experience adventures different from other years. They will be heading to the exciting community of.....stay tuned!
Boundary Waters Canoe Trips
Canoe trips are planned every other year (during the summer opposite mission trips) with Wilderness Canoe Base in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. This experience allows youth to learn and experience God's creation in a completely new way.
