Our Church School

We have had a vibrant Church School with tween groups, teen groups, acolytes, and junior acolytes - our Fireflies. We now have 14 children registered in our church school, usually with a weekly attendance of six to seven children, three to four regular teachers, most of whom are parent volunteers, and a paid part-time church school director. Our largest cohort of children are between the ages of four and seven, with a few older elementary children in the mix. We offer Church School, using the Godly Play curriculum, most Sunday mornings between September and May, with a few weeks off that coincide with local school vacations and holidays. The church school meets during the first part of the 10 AM service, after which the children join their families in the Sanctuary at the Peace. We have continued to put on a Christmas Pageant every December. We now have the Pageant during the Advent season. We have also continued the tradition of having a picnic to kick off the church school year in September and a smaller one to end it in May.

Our church school operates September to June during the 10am Service. All interested families should contact Becky Merinov, the church school coordinator.

Our Adult Education

Adult Formation continues to be a priority at St. Andrew's. During the past two decades, this has taken the form of adult Bible study, theological and devotional reading groups, and occasional use of external presenters. Before COVID and our last call, our previous Rector led informal discussions concerning Christian faith, practice, and mission opportunities during a coffee hour between Sunday morning services. During the pandemic, one of our lay leaders initiated a small group, Growth in the Spirit, to meet online to read and discuss a reading that facilitated devotion, prayer, and personal sharing.

Centering Prayer Group: Meeting via Zoom on Wednesday evenings (7-8:15pm), this group engages in a 20-minute Centering Prayer and shared Lectio Divinia. Please see the Calendar for more details.

​Growth in the Spirit: Meeting via Zoom on Wednesday mornings (9-10am), this group meets to read & discuss a reading that facilitates devotion, prayer, and personal sharing. Please see the Calendar for more details.
