- Youth Sunday

Worship Times: 9:00 & 10:30 am
Christian Education: 9:00 for Children & Adult

Youth Sunday;Joel BaierThe teenage years are full of adjustments, major changes, and new learnings that come from taking big risks. This coming Sunday is Youth Sunday, when the youth of Saint Andrew will share some of the stories of their lives and learnings. They've found inspiration in those verses from the prophet Isaiah, who promises that God makes a way where there seems to be no way, and from those verses from a letter to the church at Corinth that says God is giving the world a brand new start. Come Sunday, and maybe you'll find some, too.
