Wednesday Afterschool Cafe and Family Programming Night – Each Wednesday from 3 to 7 pm

Each Wednesday, families are welcomed to share in a night of fellowship, dinner and Christian nurture.  Youth share in an afternoon filled with bells, games/snack and Confirmation Class (7th & 8th Graders)  and  homework time.  This program is open for youth from Grade 4 through 12.  Families come together as a Church Family for dinner at 6:30..  Adult Education and youth band practice wrap up the evening during and following dinner.  Bus and vehicle transportion is provided from the schools to St. Andrew!  This program is open to church members and the community.  Students from our The Neighborhood Learning Center are also welcomed to participate.

Teen Mission
Our high school youth organize and lead a monthly mission project (2nd Sunday of each month) to DC with Teens Opposing Poverty to serve our homeless neighbors.  This mission project is open to all rising 7th graders and adults. Our youth also serve on mission trips in the summer.  Past trips include Progresso, Belize, Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota and Steubenville, Ohio.  Our teens come back transformed by their experience and the relationships they formed.

Fellowship, Retreats and Fun
Tweens, Middle Schoolers and High Schoolers come together for fellowship opportunities throughout the year like movie outings, mini golf and family bonfires.  Retreats are a particular focus for our older youth.  Confirmation students retreat a minimum of 3 times of year.  Our high school youth retreat or overnight two times per year.  Each year in March we join with our sister church, Bethany UMC, for a 30 Hour Famine for World Vision.
