Children are the Present and the Future of the Church St. 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.

Kids Activities to Grow in Faith

We are currently in our winter schedule. Children ages 5 and up remain in the sanctuary for worship.


All children are welcome in worship. Every week we provide a nursery with an attendant and helper to care for the youngest of Jesus’ disciples, babies to 4 years old. Our paid caregiver has a completed background check, and experience in childcare. Your children are safe and loved. Here they have their first encounter with the love Christ.

Children’s 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. The service begins with words of Scripture and a song. We say a prayer of confession and receive the promise of forgiveness. We spead to each other by “sharing the peace of Christ.” We encourage our young listeners to join us then at the front of the sanctuary during the Word With Children. We provide interactive stories that connect with the happenings of worship that day to help children learn and grow in their Christian faith.  
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.
Watch the calendar for special events such as pool parties, and vacation Bible school.
