Isolation can be difficult for anyone. Online groups offer hope to support recovery.
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)

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.
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 [...]
