A safe, nurturing environment for infants 3 months through three years during the 10:00 am Sunday Service. Nursery director and associate available from 9:45 am until coffee hour. Parents sign-in and out and are given a pager should an emergency arise.
PreK-5th Grade. Weekly, during the school year, at 10 am service, begins in Sanctuary.
Children begin with their families in the Sanctuary and then process to their classrooms for age-appropriate lessons that parallel the adult readings. This year we are using Living the Good News, an Episcopal lectionary-based curriculum. After their lessons they rejoin the congregation for communion.
Infants to high schoolers.
What are Faith Milestones? They are rites of passage that help to mark the journey of faith for kids. What do they look like? All the kids in a certain grade will be invited to sign up a milestone, they will have either one or several gatherings, and then they will often share what they learned with the congregation. For example, our 1st graders will take a couple weeks to memorize the Lord’s Prayer together and learn about it’s meaning, and then they will recite it for the congregation.
This is a completely new program for St Andrew’s, so we’re only introducing a few milestones at at a time. Our goal is to eventually have something for every grade, that looks something like the following (but we’re not there yet):
1st Lord’s Prayer
2nd Communion Bread
3rd Sanctuary Walk
5th Servant Leadership
7th Book of Common Prayer
8th Question Hike
9th Mission Trip
10th CT Subscription
12th Graduation Towel
Vacation Bible Camp
Usually the 2nd week of July. This year it is tentatively 9-13 July 2018, 9am-noon daily.
A week of fun, community, and growth! Each year we select a theme from the Bible for our kids to learn about through crafts, games, and lessons. Monday-Friday, 9am-noon.
Usually the Sunday before Christmas. This year it is December 17th, at 10am service.
Come celebrate the Christmas Story with us through a liturgy of song and play. Our children lead us in reading passages of Scripture, sing songs, and enact the story.
