Connecting to God's People:

Youth 

The mission of Saint Andrew EPC youth ministry is to help young people in our community connect with God, with God’s people, and God’s world.

Our Programs

 

  • Youth group for 6th-12th grade on Sundays after worship.

  • Summer mission trips.

  • Spiritual formation retreats to get away, have fun, and go deeper in our faith.

  • Nursery care for children.

  • Kids Worship - elementary kids are dismissed halfway through worship to a worship experience specially designed for their age group.

“I’m very excited to be a part of St. Andrew’s ministry. It’s an incredible opportunity to disciple and coach children all the way through high school, and to stay connected with them beyond.

"I am passionate about discipling youth in such a way so that their faith in Jesus Christ is foundational to their hopes for the future, guides their path in the adventure of following Jesus, and is relevant to the issues they face in their daily lives."
