NURSERY – 5TH GRADE: ORANGE SUNDAY SCHOOL

At St. Andrew, we follow a Sunday School Program based on Luke 2:52: And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man. Did you know? St. Andrew is an orange church. This means we combine the love of our immediate family (in red), with the love of our church family (in yellow). We are excited to learn and grow alongside your children and help to strengthen the family of Christ! St. Andrew is calling for faithful prayer warriors on behalf of our children. We are also in need of faithful volunteers to share the love of Christ with our kids as a Sunday School Teacher. NO experience necessary; just the desire to share your spiritual gifts and the ability to make a short or long-term commitment in the season ahead. A background check and finger prints for all teachers and volunteers is required. Can you help?

YOUTH GROUP NEWS:

 

JUNIOR HIGH YOUTH: 6-8TH GRADERS (usually*) meet upstairs, 9:00 to 10:00 AM every Sunday to explore God’s word and how it still applies to us today.  Light breakfast is served.
