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 WONDER 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.

Children’s Chapel and Sunday School

In-person Sunday school resumes on Sunday, June 6!

We will continue our online Sunday school in the summer from 9:30 to 10 a.m. In-person Sunday school will begin at 10:15 a.m. each Sunday. COVID safety protocols will be in place for our classrooms to provide a safe environment for your children.

If you are joining us in person, we will meet each week in the Children’s Chapel at 10:15 a.m. Children will join their parents in church around 10:50. All non-vaccinated teachers and children (two weeks since second vaccination) must wear a mask.

Whether you are in-person or online, the lessons are the same. Each week, we will read a different children’s book, have a short discussion and prayer, then work on a craft. Summer Sunday School at Home bags are available for those participating online or working independently at home. Please contact Ashley Pindell, children’s ministry coordinator, at ashley@standrewkc.org if you wish to pick up a Sunday School at Home bag.

Children’s Worship

Children of all ages are welcome in the 8:00 and 10:15 a.m. services. We encourage parents to sit near the front with their children so kids can see the drama unfolding at the altar and feel more a part of the experience of Holy Communion.

The last Sunday of each month is special because children are invited to gather around the altar while the bread and wine are consecrated at the 10:15 a.m. service. Children also play an important role in baptisms. Each child who chooses to participate is given a small cup of water to pour into the baptismal font before the water is blessed. As one child whose brother was being baptized said, “I helped baptize Jack!”


Nursery Care

Nursery Care resumes June 6!
The nursery will be available for both the 8 and 10:15 a.m. services. COVID safety protocols will be in place to provide a safe environment for your children.

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.
