Growing into the Full Stature of Christ
We will become a center for lifelong opportunities for Christian education and spiritual formation in order to form committed, knowledgeable, and mature Christians whose lives are fully engaged with their family, work, and community.
Welcome to Our Saint Andrew’s Youth! We have a variety of fun and meaningful programs throughout the year for our 7th through 12th graders. We meet Sundays at 10:15 a.m. upstairs for Bible Study and relevant discussion, as well as Wednesday evenings throughout the school year. We love visitors, so feel free to pop in any time and see what we’re discussing upstairs.
Wednesdays.. Bible Study, Food, Fellowship and FUN! Each Wednesday during the school year, the 7th-12th grade youth meet for Bible study, fellowship, and activities .This is a great point in the school week that the youth can come together, and be refreshed!
We begin the evening at 6:00 with prayer, and a wonderful meal prepared by a member or a team from our church family. At 6:30 we gather to discuss scripture and a special topic. They are also have a great time planning activities, activities that support the church and community, such as serving at the Food Pantry, and some that are just plain FUN, such as lock-ins and local outings.
We look forward to welcoming you! Harrison Pavlasek, Direction of Faith Formation-Youth
