What is C.R.E.W. all about?

Welcome to C.R.E.W. 2017-2018! I’m super excited for this year of C.R.E.W. and welcoming the new 6th and 7th graders into C.R.E.W. this year!

You will get weekly emails from me to recap what we talked so you can continue the faith development journey at home. This week I will be recapping what we talked about last night so that you have this as a reference as well. We believe that when we partner with families to help students to grow in faith, that is when the faith of students really sticks.

We strive to make C.R.E.W. (confirmation) a fun and faith growing experience. To accomplish this we FLOW which means Fellowship, Learning, Outreach, and Worship. These are all elements that are worked into some weeks but will be prevalent throughout this entire year.

For the first time at St. Mark, we are offering a 6-8 grade mission trip! We will be going to Minneapolis, MN July 22-27. Please sign up soon, as we only have 10 open spots. If you sign up later, you will be placed on a waiting list, though I will do my best to get you a spot. Paying a deposit of $150 holds your spot and we will fundraise the rest.
