Racial Reconciliation Resources

We have compiled some ways to educate yourself, then teach your children


Why You Need to Talk About Race With Your Kids (Podcast)
Latasha Morrison, the founder of Be The Bridge, says reconciliation in a racially divided country begins with conversations at home. In this episode, she’ll share how you can start equipping your children to start the work of racial unity.


Raising Kids Who Will Initiate Racial Equality (Blog Post)
"When my son was three years old, his school introduced him to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He became completely fascinated with Dr. King, so my husband and I walked with him down an MLK rabbit hole. Well, an MLK rabbit hole that we felt was appropriate for a three-year-old." —Candice Wynn

Camp Bridgeport

Children experience the love of God and friendship at the annual Camp Bridgeport. Shaving cream battles, sunset worship, Lip-Sync-A-Palooza, and small group discussions make every year unforgettable.

Family Testimony

The Wonsmos family has faced trials that some families may never see in a lifetime. Let them tell you about the impact of their church family – and hear 2-year-old Lila talk about all her favorite St. Andrew teachers!


We've curated the songs played in the halls of our Children's department, with tunes from this summer's VBS as well as other popular children's recordings. We hope this playlist helps extend worship throughout the week for your family!

Small Groups

Saturday Night | Small Group

Room Assignments for Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
Newborn-PreK  |  Room 10
Kindergarten-5th Grade begin in the worship service with their parents, then are dismissed during the service to Room 126.

Sunday Morning | First-Time Guest

Our children’s ministry runs concurrently with our worship services. For the safety of your child we ask that each child gets a name tag at a check-in station. For new families there is a check-in station on the main level. A smiling greeter in a blue t-shirt will be happy to help you.


Early Childhood | 3 months to pre-k

Even the youngest child will experience God’s love through our caring, safe and nurturing environment. The three primary concepts we want kids in Early Childhood Ministry to know are:

God made me.
God loves me.
Jesus wants to be my friend forever.

Elementary Ministry | K-5th Grade

Elementary Programming at St. Andrew has three components, each targeted to a particular type of learning and relational environment:

Social Time: Providing Time for Fun Interaction
Social Time is designed to introduce children to the day’s topic in a setting that gives them individualized attention from their Small Group Leaders and plenty of interaction with a small group of peers.

Large Group: Communicating God's Truth in Engaging Ways
Large Group is designed to engage children in worship in a large group setting. Storytelling, prayer, and an innovative approach to the Bible story are always a part of this interactive time.

Small Groups: Creating a Safe Place to Connect
Small Groups are designed to help kids understand how the day’s topic applies to them. They’ll discuss real-life experiences, interact with a close-knit group of peers, and participate in a variety of activities that appeal to different learning styles. Life application and memory verse activities, as well as prayer, are always a part of this hands-on time.

Gary's Angels | Special Needs Ministry

Gary’s Angels seeks to embrace families of children with special needs so that they can fully participate in the life of the church.

You may contact the Children's Ministry Team or call 214-291-8024 for information on enrolling your child in Gary’s Angels or for questions regarding volunteer opportunities.

Our Vision

Family members can feel comfortable participating in their own Sunday School classes and worship in the Sanctuary. Staff and trained volunteers provide an interactive Sunday School program for their children with special needs.

Sunday School

Gary’s Angels is offered every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. and 10:50 a.m. Sunday School Curriculum is prepared specifically to meet the needs of our special students.  A variety of sensory activities keep children interested in God’s Word.  A “quiet” room is set up for children needing limited stimulation.

Trained Volunteers

A trained volunteer, “Buddy”, will be assigned to work with your child either in a regular Sunday School classroom, or in one of two classrooms specifically designed for our special students.

In Memory

The Gary’s Angels ministry is dedicated to the memory of Gary Arnold. Gary and his wife Jennifer were instrumental in bringing this ministry to our church. Gary’s passion for life and his dedication to God and his family continue to inspire us.
