Christian Education


Maurice Valentine, Sunday School Superintendent

St. Mark offers many biblically based opportunities to grow in the knowledge of God. Our goal is to provide instruction in various venues that are conducive for learning, fellowship, and worship. 

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn.

Additionally, the Sunday School Ministry sponsors our Annual Christmas, Easter, Black History Celebration, Vacation Bible School, Church Picnic and Harvest Festival. 


Evangelist Retta Ware, Instructor

Meeting Times: Each Sunday at 9:00 a.m., New Members Class meets in the Education Bldg.

The New Members class is designed to educate our new members on the principles of the Gospel and welcome them into the St. Mark Family. During this 9-week class, new members are assisted in identifying their God given talents and are encouraged to become involved in one or more of St. Mark’s many ministries. We invite you to attend the New Members’ class and Bible Study.

We welcomes all ages each Sunday morning at 9:00 a.m.

Children’s Church provides an interactive worship experience for children ages 5 – 12, and is held on the
