The children's ministry at St. Andrew provides meaningful and interactive opportunities for birth through elementary school.

We utilize developmentally appropriate curriculum and resources that are inclusive and celebrate our connection with each other and to God. You can learn more about Orange curriculum in Family Ministry Resources.

We seek to build community through Sunday morning classes (Kids' Growth Groups), family-focused events, and seasonal offerings such as Vacation Bible School.

What to Expect

When attending on a Sunday, everyone is invited to attend worship together. Art tables are available for kids in our worship space with a variety of supplies for creating while they are listening. Children from birth through age three are welcome in the nursery during both services. During the school year, Kids' Connection meets at 9:00 for preschool through first grade, with the kids leaving partway through the service. At 10:30, KGGs are available for those in preschool through fifth grade.

To Learn More

As we shift from providing outdoor supervised childcare to only indoor services, the nursery will not be available at this time. 

Outside of the current pandemic environment, we provide childcare during all services for infants through age three. The nursery is located near the sanctuary. Pagers are available for parents for quick communication as needed.

All nursery staff members are hired by the church and have had a background check, training, and abide by church policies and guidelines.

To learn when the nursery will be fully opened again as well as other current offerings, please sign up for the Family Ministry Newsletter.

Kids of all ages are always welcome to stay in the Great Room with their families. Art tables are available in the Great Room where kids can create during worship. Nursery care is available for ages 0-3, those in preschool through first grade are dismissed to Kids' Connection during the 9:00 service, and Growth Groups are available for preschool through middle school at 10:30. Kids' Connection is taking a break for the summer as are the 10:30 KGGs for kindergarten through fifth grade.
