Each summer, young children come together to sing, do arts and crafts, put on plays, share snacks, and learn how to serve God by serving the people and the world around them. This program is run entirely by volunteers and is open to all children ages 3 ½ to 9. Older youth are invited to help out during the week.
Several times during the year, the children of the parish enjoy an evening of activities at church while their parents enjoy an evening out. Parents Night Out, which normally lasts from 6:00-9:00 p.m., is for children up to age nine. They enjoy professional programming such as a puppet, reptile, or magic show, as well as crafts or a movie. Parish youth ages ten and over can serve as assistants to the volunteer adult childcare providers. There is a nominal fee to cover the cost of the program and dinner for the kids.
St. Andrew’s Fifth and Sixth Grade Fellowship is where kids can enjoy a fun and safe environment to be themselves. The leaders are able to provide mentoring and guidance without being “pushy” and they can discover the power of God working through us by sharing with the community through outreach programs and food collections.
Popsicles on the Playground normally happens every Sunday in June and July after the 10:00 a.m. service. All children and youth are invited to enjoy some time on the playground equipment and have a cold treat. Popsicles, cold water, and napkins are provided, and the parents get some time to become acquainted. A shade canopy is usually up to protect the babies from the direct sun while their brothers and sisters are playing.
