Family Bible Story Time

By |2020-11-01T12:01:30-06:00October 23rd, 2020|LIFEU, Scripture|

Join these interactive conversations with actual Bible studies your family will get to do together during a Sunday evening devotion time -- between dinner and your bedtime routine! Try out different ways to explore God's Word, including shared reading, dramatic readings, puppets, and using simple objects from around your home to help Bible stories come alive for children. Each week you'll connect with each other, with other families, and leave with practical ideas for how to use the Bible in everyday life. Facilitated by Beth Hamen and Erika Hiland on the Children, Youth & Family Ministry Team. Sundays, 7-7:30 p.m. (Nov. 8, 15, 22)

Together in Grief – IN-PERSON - Thursday afternoons 4:30 - 6 pm Winter/Spring 2023 session, starting Thurs., January 26, 2023 Great Hall Building - Dot Room JOIN ANYTIME St. Andrew’s offers an in-person, facilitated support group for those who are experiencing the loss of loved ones. This will be an open support group – primarily focused on what members bring to share about how they are and where they are in their experiences. The group  will be lightly structured with an opening, closing and a suggested topic for discussion. The hope for the group is that members will have an opportunity to share, listen, and support each other toward healing. Or, put another way, “To learn how to live,” as a member of a grief group once said. Meetings will be held in the St. Andrew's Great Hall building, Dot Room, from 4:30 - 6 pm. Meeting dates for the winter/spring 2023 session are: January 26; February 2, 9, 16 and 23; March 2, 9 and 16, 2023. Cost for the entire session is $20. Scholarships are available; please contact Lisa Grundtner, lgrundtner@saintandrews.org, 651.762.9117 for details.   REGISTER HERE. Group Facilitator is Pat Pardun, St. Andrew's Resource Counselor, who has  facilitated grief support groups in her church for the last few years. Pat is licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist and as an Alcohol and Drug Counselor. To learn more about the group please contact:  Pat Pardun at ppardun@saintandrews.org, 651.762.9155.

9th Grade Confirmation Update

By |2020-08-17T10:22:20-05:00August 17th, 2020|Highschool Events|

Hey 9th Grade families!  My name is Per Nestingen. I’m the High School Minister at St. Andrew’s. I get to guide you through the end of your Confirmation journey and I feel so lucky to have this as part of my ministry. Here is a quick summary of how to get started; if you want all the details, read my extensive information below. Confirmation Day is October 25, 2020! We know it will include an online worship component in the morning (9 and 10:15 a.m.) that all can view. We also feel it's important to have an in-person component for the actual Rite of Confirmation. The extent to which we gather and who can participate will be decided later, but it will at least include each small group and parents/guardians. If we can figure a way to include more people, we will, for we know how special of an occasion this is for your entire family. Please register for 9th Grade Confirmation HERE. The cost this year is only $40.   The first step in this process is to schedule a 1-on-1 meeting with Per in August. Please do that HERE.   I’m so excited to meet with you all! Please email me ALL your questions, as I sincerely want you to feel totally informed and comfortable over the next three months.

6th Grade Confirmation Kick-Start Letter

By |2020-08-17T10:03:15-05:00August 17th, 2020|Middle School Events|

July 21, 2020   Welcome to Confirmation at St. Andrew’s! We’re reaching out to members and friends we believe are making the transition into 6th grade to invite you to join us on this adventure of forming and living out faith! Confirmation at St. Andrew’s is a three-year Christian education program that culminates in affirming (or “confirming”) one’s Baptism in the fall of 9th grade. In these years we explore what it means to be God’s child, follow Jesus, and be part of the body of Christ -- at St. Andrew’s, within our families and communities, and all over the world. More than 350 youth participated last year! Through Confirmation, we will provide your children with these “Four Es”: We provide an Environment that lets them know they are safe and loved, and also allows them to ask the big questions about life and God. We Energize their faith lives through weekly gatherings and lessons geared to their age that both relate to their daily life and are built on a solid Lutheran theology. We Equip them with a community of people of all ages that love and support them. We Encourage them to see how God is moving in their lives -- both inside and outside the church.   To get a great start to the year, we’ve launched 6th Grade Confirmation Kickstart! Just for 6th graders, Kickstart includes an info meeting, a one-on-one conversation with me, several group gatherings, and getting ready to join 7th and 8th graders in October. Please see the enclosed flyer for the schedule and details. Take the first step on the Confirmation journey! Sign up for Kickstart at www.tinyurl.com/confirmationkickstart (Registration for the full year will open later in August.) Finally, we know that Confirmation will look much different this year. Thank you for [...]
