Youth Ministry

TURTLEs
stmark-turtleTURTLEs are Teens Using Religion To Love Everyone, our high school youth group. The TURTLEs meet on Sunday mornings in Room 6 at 10:40 a.m., and also at least once per month for a variety of events: movie nights; Laser Tag; ice skating; a February weekend retreat with other local churches; and various single-day volunteering with local charities. Additionally, the TURTLEs attend the tri-annual week-long ELCA Youth Gathering (Detroit in 2015), and summer mission trips in other years (Kansas City, KS in 2013 & Indianapolis in 2014).

Jr. TURTLEs are youth in grades 6-8. We meet about once a month for fun, Junior TURTLEfaith-building activities.

 

This year due to small numbers, the Junior and Senior TURTLEs groups have been combined.

NEXT JR & SR TURTLE EVENT:  TBA

FROGs!
stmark-frog-smFROGs are Families Relying on God: families with children in preschool through 5th grade.  We gather several times during the year to provide both fun and service-oriented activities for our younger children.

We want to offer families with younger children some opportunities to share in fellowship and build supportive relationships with each other, between children, and within families.

NEXT EVENT: Sunday, July 16, 12:00PM – Pool party
