Harbor (High School Ministry)

On hold until further notice

Join our NEW gathering for all high students — from all school districts, friend groups, and stages and levels of faith! Our goal is to create a space for youth to be authentically who they are, as we believe God made them. Harbor includes food, socially-distanced small groups (organized by grade) for discussion and activities, games (as creatively as we can during a pandemic), and a friendly competition, question of the day, and Jesus Quote to ponder. We’ll follow St. Andrew’s COVID guidelines to create a safe event for all. Registration is required so we can communicate all pandemic precautions ahead of time.

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.


During the three years of Confirmation, middle school youth begin own their faith journey — learning what it means to be a Christian, what make us Lutheran, and what it means to live out our faith in daily life.

During the fall of 9th grade, students who intend to affirm their faith will have four weeks of small group meetings and a weekend retreat to walk through “what’s next” in their faith journey. Confirmation services are held during worship services on Reformation Weekend.

Senior Blessing

High school graduation is a time of excitement and celebration (sometimes mixed with stress or uncertainty) as our teenagers mark a significant moment in their journey of life and faith. We send them into all that remains ahead, praying that God will bless, keep, and guide their hearts and reminding them of both God’s constant presence and the love, support, and encouragement of St. Andrew’s faith community.

The Senior Blessing Skipping Stone includes a workshop in mid-May, followed by a celebration in early June that includes a brunch and a blessing in worship.

High School Music Opportunities

St. Andrew’s offers a variety of options for children and youth (Grades K-12) to be involved in vocal and instrumental music groups. For details and registration for choirs, please visit the children’s and youth music page.
