About Family Ministries

We utilize Orange Curriculum for preschool through high school. Orange strives to combine the influence of the church with the influence of home to have a greater impact than the two could have alone. Find out more about our curriculum on the Family Resource page linked below! 

Camp Information

Church camp is a time-honored tradition, and you have the opportunity to send your kids to camp through Impact 2818, the Indiana Conference's UMC camping ministry! Did you know one of the properties is only about a half-hour from West Lafayette in Warren County? Located on over 300 acres of wooded land, Pine Creek Camp is a beautiful, rustic site. There are camp opportunities for those entering Kindergarten through eighth grade. The Elementary Impact camp will be directed by Janee and Pastor Kelly this summer! Opportunities to serve as a camp counselor are available to those 14 and up. It will be more fun if you are there! 

Registration is available on the Impact 2818 website. Be sure to email Janee first for the St. Andrew discount code! Through our church budget and memorial gifts, we are able to offer 50% off scholarships to those who wish to go to camp. Additional scholarship money is available if needed.



In the sanctuary, we offer family tables along the edges of the Great Room as an option for families that prefer them. Art boxes are available at the Welcome Desk for you to pick up on your way into service and leave at church. These kits are refreshed each week. 


The nursery is available for families with children from birth through age 3. When children arrive, we will take temperatures. Sanitation of toys continues to be a priority. The number of children in the nursery will be limited to help ensure child safety. 

Growth Groups

Kids' Growth Groups (preschool through 5th grade), Middle School Growth Group, and High School Growth Group are available during the 10:30 hour.  More details about Growth Groups can be found on the Kids and Students pages. 

You can learn more about our ministry with kids and students by visiting the links at the bottom of this page or contacting Janee LaFuze, Director of Student and Young Adult Ministries, or Janet Dietz, Coordinator of Family Ministries.
