Welcome, we’re happy
you’re here!

St. Andrew student ministry is composed of students who are currently in 6th-12th grade. We offer a variety of programs, small groups, classes and special events throughout the year.

Our goal is that anyone who walks through our doors is welcomed and shown the love of Christ. We aim to help students find a sense of purpose and belonging in their relationships in their relationships with God and their community. 

 

Ongoing Programs

Wherever you are in your faith journey, these year-round gatherings are built for you.

 

Sunday School

Students grades 6th-12th meet every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in our student space. We first gather for some time to mix/mingle, then move into a  time of worship and learning. We close each Sunday morning with small groups that are organically formed (mostly by grade) and lead by adult volunteers. WE are currently studying the book of John. The lounge is open at 9am where students can enjoy donuts and coffee. On the second Sunday of each month we have an incredible group of volunteers that make pancakes for us to enjoy before the 11:00am contemporary service. If you have any interest in being a small group leader, bringing donuts, serving coffee or making pancakes reach out to Melissa Adams [email protected]

Lighthouse Groups | High School

Lighthouse Groups are small groups of students who come together and meet on a weekly basis and study scripture. Our current series is on Proverbs.  The groups are led by students in homes, and they all meet from 7:00-8:30 pm. They are structured on growing in relationships together as well as their personal relationship with Christ.

Life Groups

Lifegroups are small groups of students that meet outside of Sunday morning with an adult volunteer. Ideally once a week. The groups are made up of students that are the same grade/gender. They mostly meet in homes or church. They sometimes go to lunch together, meet up for frozen yogurt or support each other at sporting events. The goal is to have a group of friends that are Christ followers who support and pray for each other. If you are interested in being placed in a Life Group contact Melissa Adams

 

Home Days | Middle & High School

 

Our student center is open from 4:00-7:00pm every Wednesday! Students are welcome to come study in our lounge, play arcade games or shoot hoops in our gyms. We have FREE pizza and candy/soda for sale. All are welcome! This is a great way to invite friends to church.

Contact Day’Quann with questions.

 

Lunch Bunch | High School (Off Campus Lunch)

Every wednesday from 12pm-1:30pm an incredible group of volunteers serve lunch for around 150 students. There is a standing rotation of Corn Dogs, Pasta, Burgers/Hot Dogs and Chicken Nuggets. Of course there are always the infamous “lunch bunch grapes” and delicious desserts are served each week as well. We ask for a $2 donation to offset some of the cost. All are welcome!
