St. Mark's Lutheran Church

Pre-school ClassSunday School at St. Mark’s is a wonderful time of fellowship and learning for all ages--from our oldest to our youngest members of the congregation.

Our 2017-18 program opens Sunday morning, September 17 at 9:15am. Students proceed directly do their classrooms. We have closing in the library at 10:10am where we have announcements and the Lord's Prayer.

For our adults, we have a choice of two:

 Crossways: Our adult Crossways study will start with Pastor West undertaking a study of the publication, 40-day Journey With Martin Luther by Gracia M. Grindal.

Crossways Adult Sunday School Class Master's Gardeners (formerly the Middle Lounge group):  This group will study the text, Reclaiming the "L" Word: Renewing the Church from Its Lutheran Core. Expect a lively discussion.

  Our high school youth meet in the North Lounge, a room set up especially for them in an informal setting that encourages discussion focused on the intersection of scripture and everyday life. Karen Boone leads this group.

  As they prepare for confirmation, our middle school students involve themselves with a more goal-oriented curriculum as they learn about what, exactly, it means to be a Lutheran. They learn about the history, prayers, terminology and services of the church. They also become involved with service projects and trips to locations important to the history of the Lutheran church in America. This year, they will stud Luther, in conjunction with the Reformation500 celebration.

Middle School classroom

  This year elementary and younger students have a new curriculum, called "Whirl". It is through Sparkhouse and is very similar to our Spark program. This covers ages 2 through 5th grade. The lessons are lectionary based so the students will hear the same story in Sunday School that they will hear in the church service that Sunday. The kids will have their own Whirl Bible and Learner Leaflets. The new feature is a video clip for each Sunday approximately 4 minutes long that covers the that week's bible story in a "real-world" situation. This includes new characters that will be sure to keep the kids' attention. For more detailed information please visit their website at http://wearesparkhouse.org/kids/whirl.

If any of these interest you—as a student or a volunteer teacher — please contact our Youth & Family Ministry leaders at bjones@stmarkswilliamsport.org or mowen@stmarkswilliamsport.org.
