Elementary Ministry (Grades K-5)

Elementary children’s ministries provide opportunities for children to experience the love of Jesus, build friendships, and grow in faith.


Educational Opportunities

Open to children age 3 (by Sept. 1, 2021) through Grade 5

Sundays at all worship services: Sanctuary (Traditional worship) at 9 a.m. or 10:30 a.m., Great Hall (Contemporary worship) at 9:30 a.m., or on-demand family lessons

Sunday school is St. Andrew’s weekly Children’s Ministry, a time for kids to worship, sing, create, move, and explore God’s Word!

Skipping Stones Ministry

Our Skipping Stones ministry celebrates six moments in a child’s journey of life and faith, reminding them they are a beloved child of God and part of a church family. Each Skipping Stone includes an interactive workshop to support families in fulfilling baptismal promises to nurture faith in their children. We then celebrate and bless children/youth during worship as a reminder that the congregation also promises to encourage families in the life of faith.

First Communion

A child’s preparation for First Communion is provided as one of our Skipping Stones ministries for those in grades 1-5. Children (with a parent) attend a fun, experiential Saturday morning workshop and then receive their first Holy Communion with their family during a worship service.

Third Grade Bible Blessing
