SOAR, RISE & THRIVE CHILDREN'S PROGRAM 

Get ready to SOAR and RISE at St. Andrew UMC! That’s right…  on April 8th we launch our NEW Sunday morning children’s groups!

  • Discovering the great stories of the Christian faith
  • Exploring through games, art, music, crafts, even cooking! How to live the Christian life today
  • Making positive, healthy relationships that last a lifetime

SOAR begins at 9:30am in contemporary worship where the children experience being a part of the whole congregation. Uplifting and special music, prayer, and weekly children’s message sets the engaging tone for the morning. At 9:40 children are dismissed with their adult group leaders to one of three age-appropriate sessions: (Pre-K/K/1st), (2nd/3rd), (4th/5th) where they are inspired to grow in faith, hope and love.

RISE! begins at 11:00am in traditional worship where the children experience being a part of the whole congregation. Uplifting and special music, prayer, and weekly children’s message sets the engaging tone for the morning. At 11:10 children are dismissed with their adult group leaders to a single all-ages group where they will engage in age-appropriate opportunities to grow in faith, hope and love.

 SOAR and RISE!, together with our Tuesday evening elementary-school aged youth group THRIVE (which meets at 5:30pm), offer all of the creative, engaging, and wonder-inspiring experiences a child could hope for! Join us!

  • No boring classroom structure
  • Each week activity stands on its own (no disadvantages for missing a week)
  • Constantly new and rotating activity focus
