Expert Day Care for infants and children younger than 5 is provided during the 10:00 am service by Samira Sameni, who is a preschool teacher at our St. Andrew’s Children’s Center. Drop-off is in the Children’s Center courtyard.
Sunday School for ages 5-12 during the 10:00 am service is held outdoors in the St. Andrew’s Children’s Center Courtyard. In the case of rainy or cold weather we meet instead in the 2nd floor lobby of the Children’s Center building. Follow the A-frame sign to see if the lesson will be in the courtyard or upstairs. Over the next few weeks, lessons will focus on the life of Jesus from the New Testament of the Children’s Story Bible, and will include stories. prayers, songs, and fun activities or crafts. The children are brought back to their parents in time to participate in communion. Please stop by the bulletin board in the Fellowship Court to see a selection of our children’s artwork from their Advent/Christmas lessons.
If you have any questions or feedback on St. Andrew’s Sunday School, please contact Tammy Smecker-Hane or the church office.
Youth in grades 6-12 are welcome to become acolytes, assisting the clergy during worship. Acolytes light altar candles, carry the torches and cross, present offertory plates to ushers, assist with communion preparation and, at special services when incense is used, handle the thurible. Typically, acolytes are scheduled to serve once a month.
