Children & Youth

Overview

Welcome to St Andrew’s!
Our children and youth programs use the language of “faith formation.”  What does that mean?  Our hope is that with God’s help all that we do as a community would embody and teach our children and youth the Christian faith.  As our Mission Statement says, our programs exist “to nurture children and youth to find their purpose and place in the church.”  One of the ways I like to talk about this is to say that every person has a place in the Church and a grace (gift) for the Church.  I hope that our kids know that they have a place in Jesus’ community and that they bring something to his table that blesses the world.  We want our kids to sink their roots deep into the beauty of the Christian faith.  We do this by fostering a supportive community, engaging with the Christian story, and providing opportunities for love and service.  Welcome to St Andrew’s!  I’d love to meet and get to know you, answer questions, or help you find a place to plug in,

Blessings,

Jordan Uomoto, MDiv
Director of Faith Formation for Children & Youth

Foundations of Faith Formation (Mission, Vision, Values)
Check out the Mission, Vision, and Values that the Faith Formation Council drafted for our children and youth programs.  They took time to listen, discern, and articulate what is important to St Andrew’s.  We call them our Foundations of Faith Formation because they are the foundational blocks upon which we plan our programs.  Read our Foundations of Faith Formation here.
