Children and Youth

Nursery

Nursery care for children up to five years of age is available year-round on Sunday mornings during worship (9 and 10:30 am services) and the Sunday School hour.  As needed, the nursery is also available for many evening classes and events.  Experienced caregivers work to provide a safe environment of play and fellowship for our youngest parishioners.

Christian Education

St. Andrew’s presents Sunday school classes for children and youth aged 3 and above.  Classes start after the 9 am service and last approximately 1 hour.  The Sunday School curriculum is based on the “Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.”  This program is built around the belief that “God and the child have a unique relationship with one another, particularly before the age of six, and that the growth of this relationship should be assisted by the adult, but is directed by the Spirit of God within the child. Children need their own place to foster the growth of that relationship.”

St. Andrew’s Youth (SAY)

St Andrew’s Youth (SAY) group involves youth who are in 7th to 12th grades. We meet the first and third Wednesday of the month during the school year from 630 pm-8 pm in the basement of St. Andrew’s. We enjoy food, fellowship, and fun! Things that we have done in the past include a Law Enforcement Appreciation Breakfast; Trick or Treating for cans for the food pantry; packing food for Kids Against Hunger; Christmas caroling at the Rainbow House with cookies and cocoa; bake sales, movie nights and movie marathons, other service projects, and more! In this upcoming year, we are excited to make more fleece blankets for organizations in need around the Omaha area. We also will be having fun in escape rooms!
