Children's Classes

CrossWalk, St. Andrew’s Sunday morning program for 4-year-olds through 5th graders, will begin again on Rally Day, Sunday, September 8, 2019.    Teachers concentrate on one Bible story each month in CrossWalk, exploring its themes through workshops such as art, video, science, drama, games, and cooking.    During the fall, CrossWalk students, teachers, and shepherds will be focusing on three Old Testament figures – Elisha, Nehemiah, and Jonah – who helped to further God’s plan for God’s Kingdom.  Kids will see a video about the transfer of power from Elijah to Elisha.  They will make a feast as they share Nehemiah’s joy at being reunited with scripture after exile.  And there may just be a whale big enough to hold Jonah and several children at one time as they hear the story of the prophet’s disobedience.  We are still seeking teachers and shepherds for the new CrossWalk year.  Come join this exciting program and deepen YOUR faith as you lead St. Andrew’s children in theirs.  In September, CrossWalk begins each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. in Room 104 on the first floor of the education building. 


Infant – Age 2. Our caregivers are delighted to be entrusted with St. Andrew’s youngest members in our clean, safe, and inviting Infant Nursery. Room 13

Age 3. Our young preschoolers hear bible stories, color, work on craft activities, and play with their friends, all under the loving care of our team of teachers in Room 12.
