Saint Andrew Youth (SAY)
and Chi Rho

Sunday School
Youth in grades 6, 7 and 8 meet every Sunday from 9:30 to 10:20 a.m. in Room 103. Grades 9 through 12 meet in the Youth Room, located on the lower level. Youth Sunday School teachers approach lessons with the goal of relating Biblical lessons to daily life.
In Sunday School our Chi Rho kids (6th-8th grades) came up with the following acrostic poem to describe what it means to live their lives with Integrity. It's a good recipe for all of us to follow!

INTEGRITY MEANS:
I
nterest in Others
Not hurting People
Trustworthy
Encouraging
Gratitude
Right Thing
I
nsightful
Thoughtful
Your Faith (as in it takes faith to act with Integrity; and having Integrity is a way to show your faith)

Sunday Evening Fellowship
SAY (9-12) and Chi Rho (6-8) gather (almost) every Sunday from 4:00-6:00 pm in Friends Hall. There’s something for everyone — fun & games, singing & supper, and lively discussion.

Leadership in the Congregation
Youth are active in church leadership: providing musical leadership, serving in worship, teaching younger children in the nursery and Children’s Church. The youth prepare and lead both an evening worship service to celebrate the Advent season and a Sunday morning worship service every spring.

Connections to the Larger Church
Youth participate in the life of our denomination, the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), through leadership on the regional youth cabinet, regional youth retreats and Tall Oaks Camp experiences.
