Encounter Christ - Grow in Faith - Discover God's Calling - Honor God with our Lives
The goal of the Youth Ministry at Saint Andrew is to help young people encounter Christ in the sacraments, to grow together in faith, to recognize God's call to be authentic disciples of Jesus and to ultimately honor God with our lives. We strive to build relationships with and among young people and offer activities that encourage young people to meet new people, strengthen their relationship with God, live as disciples of Jesus Christ and get involved in our parish and world-wide community. We engage in worship and prayer, discuss our faith and build community through service projects that advance the Kingdom of God and fun activities that build lasting relationships.
Our Youth Ministry consists of the following groups
- Middle School Youth Group - open to students in grades 6-8.
- High School Youth Group - open to students going into or currently in grades 9-12
- CORE team - open to high school youth or adults with a heart for youth. CORE team is a group of committed disciples focused on growing in their own relationship with Jesus through prayer, formation and service, and drawing other youth to Christ and His Church.
