St. Mark's UMC Youth Group

Iowa City, Iowa


The Youth Group meets each week throughout the year (usually from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM) for a variety of activities. We sing, we play games, we read scripture and have devotions. Mostly, we have fun! We spend time with each other, we worship God through our relationships and interactions with one another. Did I mention we have fun!?


Youth have Sunday School every Sunday, all year long, from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM each Sunday. We have amazing and dedicated Sunday School teachers that are retired clergy, parents of Youth and parents of non-Youth. Each Sunday we explore a new topic, sometimes we even stay on track.


St. Mark's is a congregation of mission, and that goes for the Youth of the church as well! We go on one week-long misison trip each summer; we have been to South Dakota, Detroit, MI, the Cumberland Mountains of Tennessee, Indianapolis and Niagara Falls in the last five years. We also do mission work locally, serving at food banks, retirement communities and with our local congregation.
