Our hope for our 6th-12th grade students is that they grow where they are loved, live into who they were created to be, and love everyone always.

YOUTH GROUP
Our youth group is meeting outside on most Sundays throughout the school year from 2–3:30 pm. We play games, talk about Jesus and how much we are loved. We use the Orange curriculum and like to walk alongside our students’ parents to help enrich the faith journeys of the young people in our church.

SMALL GROUPS
We have small groups for Middle & High School Girls (weekly), Middle School Guys (weekly), High School Guys (twice a month), & High School Co-Ed (twice a month) led by committed volunteers.

Our girl’s small group (G.I.F.T.) meets on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30 pm. Contact Laura Godwin (lagodwin14@gmail.com) or Sandy Wingen (sandy.wingen1961@gmail.com) to get involved!

Contact Stacy Roberts (sroberts@stmarksmidlo.com) for information about any of our other small groups.


RETREATS (Pre COVID-19)
Each fall, we attend a retreat for middle & high school students at Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA. The cost is $140 per student. In February, middle & high school students go to Eagle Eyrie for the Richmond District retreat. The cost for the District retreat is $135. Each retreat features a dynamic speaker who specializes in student ministry, a worship band, small groups and relationship-building.

MISSION TRIPS (Pre COVID-19)
In the Summer, we attend a weeklong mission trip focusing on ministry with the homeless, light home repairs and cleaning. In the past, we have gone to Nashville, Washington D.C., Boston & Philadelphia. These trips range in cost from $250-$700. We work throughout the year to fundraise support to help alleviate the cost.

WORSHIP
Our student worship team plans and leads the church in worship, scripture, and teaching every year on St. Mark’s Youth Sunday. Opportunities to greet, usher, read scripture, lead in worship, preach, sing, and play instruments are available for our students, as well.
