Children

We seek to help children discover the wonder of God’s love, to recognize the sacred and holy all around them, and to live as Jesus taught us. Our Children’s Ministry serves infants through 5th graders, providing a safe and welcoming environment where children can:

  • Learn the stories of our faith.
  • Build friendships.
  • Wonder about the words and symbols in our stories.
  • Grow as full members of the Body of Christ.

Nursery Care

Nursery Care
The nursery will be available for both the 8 and 10 a.m. services.

Kids in the St. Andrew’s nursery have their first experience of Christian community. Through stories, crafts, and play, our smallest children learn about our loving God and our responsibility to treat each other with love. Little ones birth through 3 years old are lovingly nurtured by attentive caregivers while their parents attend service or participate in Sunday formation and fellowship.

We have two separate rooms for our nursery care:

  • The Infant Room is for infants eight weeks to one year of age. This room is a quieter, more peaceful place to play and rest. We have cribs, bouncy chairs, soft toys, and a colorful rug for tummy time!
  • The Toddler Room is for children one year to three years of age and is full of fun experiences and discoveries. Kids can play alone with toys, engage in imaginative play with others, work on a craft, puzzle, and have a snack. 

Children’s Chapel and Sunday School

Children’s Chapel (ages 3 years – 5th grade) meets in person and online every Sunday at 10 a.m.

We are asking all families to register their children for the new school year. When you register your child for Sunday School, please sign up to volunteer in the classroom. We are asking all parents to sign up for one Sunday per month. In order to make our new Sunday schedule work, we need more parent volunteers. We will be calling you if we don’t see your name, so sign-up today! 

In-Person Greeter Sign Up
Consider signing up your family to be a Greeter. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other members, let your children help pass out bulletins, present the offering, and help count attendance. Children love helping with these “grown up” jobs!

If you have any questions, please contact Ashley Pindell, Children’s Ministry Coordinator.
