Throughout the year we offer many fun events for children and their families to participate in beyond that of Sunday School.
VBS 2019 is from July 22nd – 26th.
At Vacation Bible School, kids will participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, eat healthy snacks, and play teamwork-building games. This week long camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Come join us as we explore how to serve God and discover God’s amazing presence in our lives.
Mission Friends 2019 is from July 22nd – 26th.
Mission Friends is a week long community service camp for rising 4th through 8th graders that involves short mission trips, such as helping out at ECHO, cleaning up a local park, or creating blankets for children in the pediatric ward at Fairfax Hospital. Camp is from 12:30 to 3:00 p.m. Kids will start the day with lunch (brought from home) while they learn about that day’s project.
Choir Camp 2019 is from July 29th – August 2nd.
Choir Camp is a week long camp where kids ages 5 through rising 5th graders will sing, dance, play instruments, and get an introduction to music and rhythm through the Orff method. Snacks and outdoor play time are also part of this musical program which runs from 9:00 a.m. to noon. The week will end with a performance for the parents.
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.
