The Children are the Present and the Future of the Church Saint Andrew is dedicated to providing opportunities for youth of all ages to grow in spirit. Youth and Family ministry is for all ages and seeks to provide opportunities for children to share time together in fellowship, on mission trips, in classrooms, doing community service, playing games or taking trips just for fun.
We are meeting in person and ask that parents support our church-wide covenant to wear masks indoors at all times. Chidlren age 2 and up are required to wear a mask. Adults are mindful of maintaining a loving atmosphere even in this time of physical distancing and to “smile with their eyes,” so our littlest angels know that Jesus loves them and so do we.

 

Kids Activities to Grow in Faith

Nursery

Every week we provide a nursery attendant and helper to care for the youngest of Jesus’ disciples. With complete background checks, and experience in childcare, your children are safe and loved. Here they have their first encounter with the love Christ.

Childrens Message

Age 4 through rising 3rd grade (or older upon request of parents)
St. Andrew is designed to provide a meaningful worship experience for younger children attending worship on Sunday mornings. We encourage our young listeners to join us at the front of the sanctuary during the Childrens Message. We provide interactive stories that connect with the happenings of worship that day to help children learn and grow in their Christian faith. The Childrens Message is delivered by our Children and Youth Ministries Director, Jessica Randall. 
 

Grades K – 5th Grade

Elementary-aged children are invited to attend Sunday School in the youth lounge after the Childrens Message during worship. St. Andrew is dedicated to the spiritual enrichment of our children and youth. At St. Andrew, we recognize children learn best by doing. For  ages K-5th grade, we use the All-in-One Sunday School by Group Publishing. This cirriculum involves active challenges, storytelling and play that are melded into learning experiences with carefully crafted questions to help kids tie Scriptureal truth into their own lives. Sunday School is staffed with loving, dedicated (and background-checked) members within our congregation. Please let us know how we can help you help your children grow in faith!
 
Coming in September
A long-standing tradition at SAPC is to present our third grade students with their own Bible. As young readers, they can begin to learn in their own reading of Scripture. We encourage parents to take time to read their Bibles together and to help their young ones read aloud so that God’s word will come alive in their lives as a treasured experience of loving family. We will use these Bibles in the Sunday School as well.
