Christian Ed.

Our Mission - To spread God's love to all.

Classes for age 3 to 103
(Most events on line learning during COVID 19 crisis - Contact or church office for more information.)

Jesus said, "Let the little children come unto me". In the Gospel of John, it is said that all of us are  children of God. And so we invite everyone to join us for worship and for Christian Education as well. 

We at St. Andrew's Church are indeed blessed with a good Sunday School, with people offering a variety of gifts: teaching, storytelling, music, and crafts (and sometimes even a snack!)

Some Sundays we venture away from a classroom design to gather together as an entire group to explore a particular theme or to celebrate a festival around various games and activities.

St. Andrew's has a "SafePlace" policy in effect which ensures there are at least two adults present in each class, for children under the age of 18. One or more of the adults in these classes have undergone a background check.

Adult Bible Classes are offered not only on Sundays, but throughout the week.

Sunday Morning Adult Faith Formation
Meets every Sunday from 9:30AM to 10:30AM (during Sunday School). While your children attend Sunday School, there are usually two adult gatherings to choose from where you can grow in faith.  Check newsletter and Sunday worship bulletins for our latest offerings.

Thursday "Lunch Bunch" Bible Study
Bring a bagged lunch every Thursday  as we spend an hour looking at the assigned Bible text for the upcoming Sunday.

All are invited to be a part of our Sunday School as we discuss God's Word.

Opportunities for Growth

Dear Friends,
    There are several learning opportunities coming up in week ahead that I wanted keep on your radar. - "Aslan on the Move" :  This Sunday (downstairs in Jerusalem Room)  at 9:30 AM we gather together for a presentation / discussion based on Christian themes found in the C.S. Lewis classic, "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe."   This gathering will continue through November 24.  Anyone from high school students to senior citizens are welcome to attend.  Join us and be enriched in faith.  - "Lunch Bunch Bible Study" - We gather each Thursday at noontime in St. Andrew's Hall to look a little deeper at the assigned bible texts that will be proclaimed the upcoming Sunday.  We provide coffee and printed out texts.  You are free to bring Bibles and a bagged lunch if you wish.  People who rarely take part in Bible Study have become a part of this group and have found it very helpful in their walk of faith.

An Easter Prayer

Holy and Living God, You continue to confound  our expectations and surprise us with your redeeming power in our lives.  Come among us, risen Lord.  Reveal yourself to us that we may know with confidence that nothing in all creation, not even death, can separate us from your love.  In Jesus' name.  Amen. A word of thanks to all of you who offered your hearts and hands and voices to a deeply moving Holy Week and a joy filled celebration of the Resurrection.  It was exciting to see an increase in attendance at special services throughout Lent and Holy Week this year, especially among those who are newer to our faith community. Many hearts were touched and lives were lifted up through the celebrations of this past week. We are truly blessed. Continue to pray for those who were unable to be with us on Sunday, the sick, the struggling, the hospitalized, the homebound, and the dying.  Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, especially those who …

Lord's Prayer

Dear Friends,

This Sunday in worship our Gospel lesson is Luke 11:1-13.  In my message, I will be focusing chiefly on this rather strange parable of Jesus.  However, this is also the text where on e of Jesus' disciples says, "Lord, teach us to pray" and Jesus introduces what would become known as the Lord's Prayer.  While this will not be a primary focus on Sunday, I thought I would share with you below a reflection by Christian writer Brian McClaren bringing fresh meaning to a prayer that has become so familiar that, unfortunately, it can become rote and uttered with little meaning or reflection.  I hope that you will find this helpful for your own time in prayer.  And who knows?  It may even show up sometime in a worship service.
A Spoken Version of the Lord’s Prayer
This rendering of the Lord’s prayer uses unfamiliar words and phrasing to help us actually hear its message rather than lapsing into an auto-pilot recitation. You can use it in public worship by having …
