Education

Christian Education is a lifelong process. Children in Midweek and Sunday School learn the basics of their faith and see Jesus as their Friend and Savior. Adults grow in spiritual maturity and strengthen their faith through Adult Bible study opportunities.

Adult Bible Study
Sunday morning from 9:30-10:15 am, a Bible study is led in the Fellowship Hall for all adults as well as our High School Youth.
There are also a number of small group Bible studies that meet at various times and location during the week. Please contact the church office (715.848.5511) if you are interested in more information.

Midweek (Confirmation)
The Midweek program is designed to prepare students for confirmation at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church and provide a foundation for a personal commitment of lifelong faithfulness as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Students will be considered for confirmation in the spring of his/her 8th grade year in school after completion of 5 years of Midweek curriculum along with Sunday School and worship attendance. Confirmation Sunday is the third Sunday in May at the late Service.
Fifth grade students and their parents will receive instruction in the meaning and practice of Holy Communion in preparation for their First Communion. First Communion will be celebrated during the Maundy Thursday evening service.
