Bible Builders Church School
Bible Builders Church School offers church school classes all year with a few breaks here and there. We have a fantastic group of committed volunteers who lead our classes each Sunday. Beyond our Sunday meetings, the children and youth participate in seasonal presentations such as Palm Sunday, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Thanksgiving, Remembrance Day, and Christmas. The children and youth also take part in fundraisers such as Pancake Supper, May Bake Sale, and Reverse Advent to name a few examples.
Currently, we are welcoming back our children and youth to in-person church school sessions. Children in grades 1 to 6 are invited to join the worship service and then take part in church school after the youth message. Beginning September 18th, youth in grades 7 and up will alternate between small group discussion time during the service and being in the sanctuary. This is a recognition of the developing maturity of the youth while still giving them a space to discuss their challenges and matters of faith. Please note, that this plan centers on the church school council’s ability to find volunteers to lead the discussion time when scheduled, which we are currently striving to secure.
Youth and Family Ministry
Each month we invite youth and families to gather for Family Fun Time. This is an opportunity for families to connect with other families and each other while stepping away from our busy schedules. Past events include bowling, football games, mini-golf, board games, and scavenger hunts.
Additionally, the Youth and Family Council provides family resources to empower and equip parents as they build faith at home.
Monthly (almost) we host community events to introduce children, youth, and their families to the St. Andrew’s Church family. Be sure to see our newsletter with a calendar for more information.
