Children and Youth
Our congregation continues to respond to children and youth on an individual basis with appropriate educational opportunities. Activity bags are provided for those who stay in worship, and activity sheets are also available. The church also sponsors youth to attend the national Presbyterian Youth Triennium at Purdue, for a week filled with extensive Bible study, outstanding worship services, and a great deal of fun!
St. Andrew sponsors a wide variety of opportunities for adult engagement. The Sunday Morning Adult Education Class continues to meet in the Blue Room with rotating facilitators completing in the spring Faith, Transitions, Choices as well as the Lord, Teach us to Pray curricula. In addition, a special Lenten study, Illuminating Lent, was offered. Currently, our pastor is leading a Sunday morning series on “Beyond the Offering Plate: A Holistic Approach to Stewardship” by Adam J. Copelant, ed.
The Book Discussion Group also meets once a month, focusing on a different work of literature and feeding the appetite of our highly literate congregation. We try to discuss books of various genres and mix fiction and non fiction and biographies and histories. Many books deal with big issues, life issues. Our discussions go beyond the plot and characters, and often discusses how the book applies to our life.
Members meet on Wednesdays for Brown Bag Bible Study for lunch and discussion in the Blue room. Teaching responsibilities are shared by all and the group uses the PCUSA curriculum, The Present Word.
Members meet on Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:30 with study and prayer for local and global concerns. All are invited to join.
