Vacation Bible School (Ages 3 - Grade 5)
Each year, for one week during the Summer, St. Mark’s is transformed into a wild ‘n’ crazy, fun-filled place for kids to experience God’s love in life-changing ways! From 9:00 am-12:00 noon Monday through Friday, kids enjoy Bible adventures, games, crafts, music, and snacks with other kids, youth helpers, adult leaders, and St. Mark’s staff-and they walk away not only with amazing memories, but with the knowledge that God loves them and will walk beside them every day of their lives! This is also a great chance for Jr. High and High School youth (and many adult helpers) to share God’s love in a fun and meaningful way!
