Christian Ed at St. Andrew:

Our hearts yearn to know and be in relationship with God; we are created for that purpose.  In worship, our hearts and minds are opened to receive all the gifts that bring us into that relationship.  Through study of God's Word, the Holy Bible, we come to know God as He reveals Himself to us through the inspiration of the prophets and the disciples of His Son, Jesus Christ.

 

We offer Bible Study for all ages.

 

Whole Family Sunday School, Sundays at 10 am 

Our Sunday School program has been revamped this year to include members of any age in a whole family Sunday School program. 

 

Confirmation Classes, Led by Pastor Fred.  Our Confirmation program is developed for 7th and 8th graders and is a two-year program of study of Luther's Small Catechism mixed in with a lot of fun and games.   After completion of the two-year program, these youth provide a testimony of their faith to the congregation at the Affirmation of their Baptism, Confirmation Sunday.  

 

Adult Bible Study, Special short-term studies at specific times during the year. 

Our Adult program provides a discussion forum based on a continually varied list of topics.  Sometimes the group discusses a specific book of the Bible, but many other topics have included movie reviews, book discussions, Lutheran theological position discussions, ELCA policy statements, or current events. Check the News & Events page of see above for the current study.

 

A Lenten Bible Study is held on Wednesdays at noontime during Lent.

 

Contemplative Prayer - 4th Wednesdays at 8 pm - a brief discussion of contemplative prayer practices followed by 15 minutes of Taize worship and 20 minutes of silent contemplative prayer.  During the prayer time we are silent, emptying our minds to every thought and distraction (harder than you think, but easier with practice), allowing God to enter into our midst through the Holy Spirit and fill that empty space which previously had been too full of other "stuff" and distractions.
