Children- Sunday School is currently suspended until further notice due to recommendations from the CDC regarding the current Covid-19 virus.

Sunday School – Mini Church addition

Welcome to St. Andrew’s Sunday school. Our classes meet every Sunday at 10:00 AM (during the service) throughout the academic school year, from September to June. We currently have 40 children ranging in age from 3 years old through 7th grade enrolled in our Sunday school program.

Children enrolled in St. Andrew’s Sunday school learn about God’s promises from lessons in the Witness curriculum, which is based on Old and New Testament stories. Children experience their lessons in arts and crafts, interactive lessons with music and many hands-on activities.

Our teachers teach children to read and understand the Bible, follow the church service, prepare for 1st Communion, and appreciate the myriad other gifts that are brought to them through Christ’s teachings.

Some other activities that our Sunday school children are involved with include:

  • Family Sunday
  • Sunday School Christmas Pageant
  • Bring a Friend to Church Sunday
  • Harvest Sunday
  • Children’s choir
  • And many, many more…

Sunday School Update for April

I’m not sure where to begin.  Our lives have all been thrown into chaos over the past few weeks and things at St. Andrews have come to an abrupt halt, including Sunday School.  The planning we were doing with respect to Sunday School activities is on hold and obviously a few things will not happen.  Since we don’t know when a sense of “normalcy” will return, I’ll list what is on the calendar for April but please understand that it’s very possible that the schedule may be much different.

Please encourage your child to fill up their Lenten box with coins which will then be donated to two important causes.  Half of the collection will go to Guatemala to help with the mission down there and with the other half of the money, the children will be able to choose things (i.e. chickens, goats, etc) from the ELCA catalog which will then go to people in need.  The kids were really excited when we showed the catalog and are eager to make their choices!  Some of them would like to buy a cow or horse for your backyard so look out!

Tentative upcoming dates to remember:

Sunday, April 19 – Lenten boxes due

Sunday, April 26 – First Communion for 4th graders

Sunday, May 3– Harvest Sunday & children will be singing song for the congregation

One important piece of news is that the Awards Sunday will take place on Sunday, June 21 which is a week later than previously planned. 

If your child’s box of offering envelopes is depleted, please contact me and I will provide you with a new box. These are not dated so they can be used in successive years until finished.

We are always looking for more people to join our Sunday School staff so please consider volunteering as a teacher, helper, etc.  We’d love to have you!
