Hello Thrive Families,

We hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall weather we’ve been having this month. Our November Thrive Kid meeting will take place on Sunday, November 15 in Fellowship Hall from 1:00 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. We have lots of great fall fun planned for your kids. We will be talking about gratitude and blessings ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday. We’ll use the lesson of Jesus healing the ten lepers in a fun and interactive way. Of course there will be awesome music with Ms. Jan, then we will make a cool turkey hat with our blessings written on it, and we’ll finish with making a small gift your kids can give to any person they feel is a blessing in their life.


  1. Our Thrive Kids will only be meeting monthly to begin.

Part of St. Andrew’s plan to keep everyone safe is spreading out our ministry groups and limiting the number of people coming and going from the church building. To achieve this, all children and youth programs will be adjusting schedules.

  1. All children will need a parent or guardian stay with them during the program.

Whether working on a craft or learning a game, our program has always had a lot of “hands on” interaction between the leaders and the children. Because of social distancing the one on one interaction will not be possible, so we need a grown family member to stay with the kids. Siblings only need one guardian.

  1. Our music portion of Thrive Kids will not have any singing. However, Ms. Jan has thought up some different and creative ways to expose your kids to music.


Blessings to your family,

Ms. Robin
