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.

Our youth group meets 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 Grow curriculum to help enrich the faith journeys of the young people in our church. 

We have small groups for Middle Schoolers on Wednesdays led by committed volunteers.

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

Each fall, we attend a retreat for middle & high school students at Watermarks Camp in Scottsville, VA. The cost is $140 per student. Retreats are sometimes held in the spring as well. Each retreat features a dynamic speaker who specializes in student ministry, a worship band, small groups and relationship-building.

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.

Opportunities to greet, usher, read scripture, lead in worship, preach, sing, and play instruments are available for our students at both 9 and 11 am.
