The St. Mark Youth Group is a place where teenagers, grades 6-12 can strive to grow in their faith and community, as they have fun and learn ways to share their faith and serve others.
We normally meet on Sundays at 6pm for Snack Supper followed by a Biblically based program, study or activity. Please click youth group calendar below for up to date times and activities.

NEW DONATION PROGRAM
UMCmarket makes it possible for our church to receive donations from retailers every time you make an online purchase. The best thing is that you don't need to change anything from how you shop today and every small donation makes a difference.
HOW IT WORKS
Every store at UMCmarket is happy to pay a percentage of the purchased amount as a donation. There is no additional cost or charge for either you or our church. The stores sends UMCmarket contributions within a variable time frame of 30-90 days. Once our church reaches $100 in total donations, a check will be mailed.
