The Bright Lights Program

This is a St. Mark's Episcopal Church program, sponsored by Children's Ministries and Outreach.

Since December 2002, the Bright Lights Program has taught children about helping others through monthly visits to a nursing home that include a program of singing and giving away crafts that the kids have created for the seniors. This program is open to any child who wants to participate, regardless of whether they attend St. Mark's. More that half the kids do not attend St. Mark's.  This web site contains information about the program and details for parents of the participants.
