Christian Ed.

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

Classes for age 3 to 103
Sundays from 9:30 AM to 10:40 AM - September - June

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 10:40AM (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.

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 …

Christmas Cantata this weekend

A word of thanks to everyone who worked behind the scenes on this year's Advent Family Night.  What a wonderful evening for God's children of all ages.  A special thank you to our Director of Christian Education, Mrs. Janice Stickley, and members of our Christian Education for coordinating this event.
We hope to see many of you here, along with family and friends, at 5 PM this Saturday night for our Christmas Cantata. 

Join us for a joy filled hour together featuring special music from the choirs of St. Andrew's and Augustus Lutheran Church in Trappe, the Christmas story retold, and beloved Christmas carols sung together.  This is a great way to get into the spirit of the season and an opportunity for those of you who will be traveling or have other commitments on Christmas Eve this year to celebrate with your faith community.  Bring family members, friends, neighbors, or co-workers for this special night together.
Also, mark your calendars for our Christmas pageant on Sunda…
