MOPS @ St. Mark’s

We are Mothers of Preschoolers (newborn to kindergarten) who desire friendship, community, support, and growth. Fall 2020 will look different during Covid-19 because we are NOT meeting in-person this semester. Our plan is to schedule socially distant monthly Moms Nights Out and monthly outdoor play dates (weather permitting). Additional activities and gatherings will be posted on the MOPs Facebook group page (this is a private group) as opportunities present themselves. We will reassess for Spring 2021. Email Alexis at [email protected]om to register; we cannot wait to meet you!

SAMS @ St. Mark’s

School Age Moms welcomes mothers of children from roughly kindergarten through the secondary grades, but also strives to be a welcoming group for all ages. SAMs provides support, a Mom community, and a sounding board for moms from St. Mark’s Preschool, the church, and the community. The group will meet twice monthly via Zoom and roughly twice monthly out at a brunch location. Weekly meetings allow for growth and also meet people where they are in terms of comfort in socializing during Covid-19. Contact Ali Lemberg for Zoom codes or more information.

Welcome Back St. Mark’s Preschoolers!

We’re so happy to welcome our St. Mark’s Preschool teachers and preschoolers back into the building. The preschool does have a few openings for the 2020-2021 school year due to the changes related to Covid. If you know of families with little ones who may be interested (they do not have to be a church member), please encourage them to contact director, Jen Weixler.

Thank you Clara Rozmaryn!

We are very fortunate that Clara picked St. Mark’s as the site for her Girl Scout Gold Award project.  She designed, sketched, and supervised the painting of murals in the Education Wing entrance.  We can’t wait for you to see her depiction of Noah’s Arc, Jesus calling the disciples, and Jesus feeding the 5ooo.  In addition to the murals, Clara will also be creating curricula for classes to use to learn about these murals.  Clara went to preschool at St. Mark’s many years ago (she’s a high school junior now) and her mother teaches at the preschool currently.  We are grateful for Clara’s service!
