Sunday School welcomes all kids!
Normally Sunday School hours for children and teens are 9:45am – 10:45am (between our two worship services). However, since COVID we have changed to conducting Sunday School once a month because of having only one service. Sunday School starts in the Sanctuary and then moves to other locations. Sunday School rooms are in the Education Building. We welcome children and teens from Pre-school through High School. To find out more about our Sunday School, please contact the St Mark office by E-mail or phone us at 360-491-2052. Check out the curriculum below. Volunteers are needed and welcome.
VARIOUS AND EXCITING Curriculum for Lower Grade Students (PRE-K – 6th grades)
We are excited to use the vast resources available through the internet for our Sunday school curriculum from. Currently, leaders plan playful Sunday school experiences that are rooted in church life using “Route 66: A Trip through the 66 Books of the Bible”. In this 192-page book, children are part of the story as they embark on a road trip through each of the 66 books of the Bible. The lessons are divided into three 12-week units, are flexible enough to serve as stand-alone supplemental material, and cover each book’s author, era, theme, and key verse.
We use a Sunday school calendar that outlines the lessons for each week based on weekly lectionary readings. Volunteers help and use their talents and passion to serve. For example, if you are someone who loves drama, you are welcome to sign up and teach the Bible story using the drama workshop! There are so many opportunities for the congregation to get involved!
Classes for Junior and Senior High Students (7th-12th grades)
The Junior High and High School classes meet with the same teachers each week to study a variety of topics! Students and teachers often study the lessons used in Sunday morning worship. This curriculum is from the ELCA “Faith Lens” program. The curriculum relates contemporary issues and concerns associated with each Sunday’s lessons. Sometimes throughout the year, special classes are offered utilizing faith topics, books of the Bible, parables, or certain scriptures. All youth are welcome!
