Children and Family Ministries

Youth and family ministry at St. Andrew is about helping children, youth and their families experience the love of God, deepen their faith in Christ, and identify their spirit-given gifts and calling, empowering them to share the love of God with others.

Youth and their families are embraced in worship and are welcome to participate in all of our ministries. We offer a variety of faith formation activities stressing service to others, intergenerational connections, and equipping households and individuals to practice their faith in all aspects of their lives.

We meet weekly and have calendared activities throughout the year.

  • Sunday School (Grades 1-5) - Youth Education featuring the Godly Play® method, a curriculum of spiritual practice exploring the mystery of God’s presence in our lives. We meet from 10:00 - 10:45 am.
  • Preschool & Kindergarten - Children age three to five are invited to experience WONDER in the Blueberry preschool room. In a space geared just for them, preschoolers will learn the stories of the Bible and experience the love of Jesus. A small snack will be served.
  • Nursery - Nursery services are available during worship for children infant through age 5. Please check availability of nursery services during special events.
  • Vacation Bible School - This annual celebration invites children to learn about God through activities, music and fellowship. For more information sign up for our email or check out this page.
  • Children's Choir -Children in grades 1 - 6 are invited to become part of our Children’s Choir. They will receive instruction from our seasoned director, Theresa Swanson and will prepare songs for Sunday worship, Christmas and Easter pageants.
  • Prayer Buds - A positive, faith-based mentorship program for our youth that builds connections across ages, helps guide children's prayer life and support their spiritual growth. Participants are paired with a St. Andrew adult who will pray for them daily, and the youth will reciprocate by praying for their adult partner.
  • Messy Church -An all-inclusive take of church that includes interactive activities, songs, prayers, and dinner! All ages are welcome and encouraged to attend. Messy Church happens on the first Sunday of the month from 4 - 6 pm.
