ST. MARK'S YOUTH & CHILDREN'S MINISTRIES
JOIN US THIS WEEK...
Our core youth group meets every Wednesday in the Youth Room. The flagship of our youth ministries focuses on social interaction and fellowship through sports & games, while tackling tough topics facing our youth today. Rooted in The Gospel, our lessons are taught through experiences and in language relevant to today's youth. This approach brings The Word of God to life, while opening the hearts and minds of our students to a relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
JOIN US THIS WEEK...
Genesis is a youth group program for elementary students that meets weekly and runs during the school year. Genesis normally breaks for the summer. Weekly youth group includes games that focus on team building, developing interpersonal skills and sportsmanship. This is followed up by an age appropriate lesson based in scripture. The lesson focuses on relevance and application of the scripture for today's kids.

Our theme this year is Grace Up & Down The Family Tree, children have gilded view of who their parents and guardians are and when they ultimately find flaws in their elders they feel betrayed or worse. We will explore that every one in our family needs grace and how can we demonstrate grace for our elders when we find out they are not perfect. Just as God shows us grace, we in turn need to demonstrate grace for those who have offended us especially those up & down our family tree.

Build homes to keep families together & avert trafficking.
Inadequate shelter in this region has caused many parents to decide they cannot care for their children which could lead to institutionalization of the children, children being sent to live with friends or family members creating separation of parents and children, or outright abandonment.
Human trafficking, in many parts of the world, is a migration problem. When people are separated from their community because of their need for work, they are vulnerable to traffickers. A home allows a family to stay intact.
$750 per Student
$650 per Adult
Plus $100 for Disneyland
