May: School Year Ends & Summer Begins


We’re coming to the end of the school year and I’m excited about planning for future children’s programs at St. Andrews. First, I know you will join me in saying thank you to those who have taught children’s Sunday school this year, Cindy Babbitt, Elizabeth Elwell, Marla Grace, Michelle and Stephen Hitt, Jennifer Linley, Megan Parks, and Catherine Runner. Our teachers took a leap of faith in September and agreed to help get Sunday school for children up and running. They have done a wonderful job!

While regular Sunday school will take a break this summer, there will be summer story time from 9:30 to 10:20 AM every Sunday in the chapel. This will be a time for lots of hands-on activities and great stories. So, don’t skip the Education Hour! Be there, PreK - 5th graders, for Sunday morning stories, art, music and play.

This summer I’ll also be organizing a Children’s Formation Committee made up of parents and other adults interested in planning and support for Sunday school, parenting forums and other events and programs for children and families. If this is an area of ministry that might be of interest to you, please let me know. Serving on the committee would be a two to three year commitment to meet monthly, a willingness to share your ideas and wisdom and a promise to regularly pray for the children and families of St. Andrews. Please contact me at 713-861-5596 or by email so that we can visit about this new ministry.
