In Sunday School, mid-week small groups, and dozens of special events throughout the year, students gather together to make friends, have fun, and learn God’s principles for making wise decisions in their lives and relationships.

At St. Andrew, our student ministry provides a strong foundation for students to see themselves and others through the lenses of the gospel of Christ.


— We are focused on developing young men & women to become christian leaders —

On campus, in our community, and thousands of miles beyond the church walls, St. Andrew Student Ministry provides the chance to grow in community and serve our world as Christ calls.

Confirmation Class

Confirmation refers to the decision a person makes to respond to God’s grace with intentional commitment, publicly reaffirming his or her baptismal vows before the congregation. Confirmands are youth in the 8th grade who learn about the meaning of Christian faith, the history and teachings of the United Methodist Church, and an explanation of the baptismal and membership vows they will be professing. Contact Confirmation Coordinator Holly Blais with any questions. The program runs January 21-November 11, 2018, and registration is now open.
