Teaching our youth how to serve
Youth Ministries at St. Andrews
Our goal at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Preschool is to provide a safe and supportive environment where each child can feel secure and thrive.
Free childcare is available on Sunday mornings, Wednesdays during WIN, and other times as requested or needed. If you are not certain if childcare is offered at a particular event or meeting, please call the church office at (619) 464-4211. Our preschool area is used for childcare. We can accommodate children from infancy through elementary age.
Students in grades 6-8 are encouraged to participate in weekly Confirmation meetings. These groups meet on Wednesdays during the school year. Dinner is available at $5 per meal. Confirmation students participate in an annual retreat, various servant projects, and other activities. The Rite of Confirmation takes place in late May or early June for 8th grade students. Contact one of the pastors if you have questions or need more information.
Vacation Bible School
St. Andrew’s offers an annual week of Vacation Bible School for children ages 4 through 6th grade. This week of stories, music, games, crafts, snacks, and fun is in July. Counselors from Luther Glen lead each rotation with volunteers from the St. Andrew’s community providing support and supplies. This week is open to anyone in the community.
