Christian Education

St. Andrews Presbyterian Church offers many opportunities for children, youth and adults to grow spiritually.  No matter where you are on your faith journey – you are graciously invited to join in our classes and conversations.

We welcome children to Sunday school classes where we show God’s love and joy in a caring environment of Bible stories and creative learning activities.

We inspire youth to reach and question as they grow in their personal faith.

We invite adults to participate in a variety of Sunday morning and weekly Bible studies, small book groups and spiritual discussions that support a life-long journey of faith.

Adults

The Vineyard Class: Room #2

Leader: Ken Gries

Fall Topic:  Spiritual Disciplines

 

Coffee and Conversation: Cassel Chapel

Leader: Rick Borger

All are welcome.  Stop by fellowship for a cup of coffee and a bite, and bring them with you into the Chapel for a discussion on the scriptures for worship the following week. For those who have never opened the Bible and those who have read it cover to cover, this is a place to learn and share thoughts and ideas as we seek to find how God uses scripture to speak to us.  (No preparation required, come as you are, come as you are able).   

 

Small Groups

There are several small group book and topic opportunities at St. Andrews, which take place during the week both in homes and in the church. Small groups provide a friendly space for fellowship, prayer and spiritual growth. Please contact Rob Cochran, Youth Director, to match a small group with a meeting time that fits your schedule.

 

Wednesday Evening Bible Study                     

The WEBS Group meets on Wednesday evenings at 7:00PM in Cassel Chapel.  The group is geared toward adults and we study a variety of topics from Bible studies to current events.  We use different formats including: Books and DVDs.  Discussion is encouraged, but passive participation is respected.  We also offer Advent and Lenten Studies yearly.  Feel free to come to one or all studies as you are able.  Ken Gries leads this class.  For more information on the WEBS Group, contact the church office for Ken’s contact information.  We hope to see you at WEBS!

 

Current Study: 

The WEBS Group will be beginning our study season on September 12, 2018.   We will be studying the book “The Ten Commandments from the Back Side” by J. Ellsworth Kalas.

The author explores how these "prohibitive" laws are our friends, intended to make life richer and more fulfilling. He uses contemporary illustrations and personal experience to show how these timeless laws give us an appetite for divine excellence.

No book is necessary for this study, but if you would like to have one please sign up in the Gathering Area.  Cost is $5.00.

Childcare

The Session, in an effort to continue the goal of St. Andrews Presbyterian Church to foster a friendly, stimulating and thoughtful place for children to know God and experience the love of Jesus Christ by our example and God's blessing, adopts the Safe Sanctuaries Policy and pauses to reflect upon what Jesus was saying about how we are to treat one another, especially children.
