Teaching our youth how to serve

Youth Ministries at St. Andrews

Preschool

Our goal at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Preschool is to provide a safe and supportive environment where each child can feel secure and thrive. 

Preschool Welcome

Child Care

Free childcare is available whenever events are held at St. Andrew’s. 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.

Confirmation

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.
