Safety Comes First

Parents, thank you for taking the time each week to complete a label for each of your children and then presenting the stub to their leader when you pick them up from their classroom. This greatly helps both their leaders and us in keeping St. Mark’s a safe and loving environment for all of our children.

Photography Notice: Each week photographers capture moments from St. Mark’s events and programs. If you would like to request that your photo or your child’s photo not be used in print materials or on the web, please let the photographer know and email the church staff at
