In addition to regular programming, we have a number of additional opportunities for kids to be a part of. Information about these is listed below.
Vacation Bible School (Summer)
Summertime VBS is all about living life to the fullest, and following Jesus is the best way we know how! We are committed to creativity and innovation when it comes to VBS. We will strive to provide a fun summer experience, focused on Jesus, and we will do just that no matter what the year brings.
More details about VBS 2022 coming soon!
Kid’s Choir and Kid’s Musical
The Kid’s Choir program is suspended until January 2022. Our Kid’s Choir is for kids in kindergarten through 5th grade. Every year our goal is to help kids discover their musical gifts and share God’s message through music. Kids’ Choir participants get to perform in worship, sing in the annual Christmas program and perform in a spring musical. We encourage you to check back in January for more updates about this program.
Tiny Tots Music
Join our Tiny Tots interactive music class for young children and a caregiver. The class is designed for kids age 0-5 and will be offered via Zoom. Kids will get to sing and play along with Debbie Doo Wop, learn about new instruments and much more. We offer four 30 minute sessions every Friday morning beginning September 17. For more information and registration go to stmarkwdm.churchcenter.com.
About the Instructor Deb Paul
Tiny Tots is led by Deb Paul, who has been a music educator since 1997. She graduated from the University of Iowa with a Bachelor of Music degree. She received her Kindermusik training in Chicago in 1996.
Shop with Scrip
St. Mark participates in the Shop with Scrip program where you buy a gift card for a particular retailer and received the full value of the card. The Shop with Scrip program will also make sure a portion of that card’s value is given to the church for it’s “Kids2Camp” fund. The Kids2Camp fund helps with camperships for children and youth attending Riverside Lutheran Bible Camp during the summers. Scrip cards can be ordered and some are available for purchase after worship. You can also buy Scrip Cards online. Please read our Shop with Scrip Guide (.pdf) to set up your online account.
