Child and Youth programs
We regretfully accepted the resignation of our Youth and Young Families Co-ordinator Caroline Claridge effective August 18. Caroline contributed a great deal to our child, youth and young families ministries and our praise team ministry and exhibited a high quality of leadership. Her shoes will be hard to fill.
Caroline and her family feel that God is calling them to new ministries and we pray that the Claridge family will continue to excel in God's work no matter where He leads them.
"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps" (Prov. 16:9Prov. 16:9
English: American Standard Version (1901) - ASV
9 A man's heart deviseth his way; But Jehovah directeth his steps.
Summer is drawing to a close and plans are well underway for our Youth Ministries.
- Session struck a Search Committee to seek a new Youth and Young Families Co-ordinator. Pastor Carter will chair that committee.
- Session places high priority on ensuring that our Youth and Young Families programs continue smoothly during the vacancy. Interim leaders are in place for most of the programs and a special effort is placed on the resumption on a program for teens.
- Sunday School continues uninterrupted during the vacancy and we thank all the teachers and support volunteers for bearing with us.
- Caroline's final project was the annual Vacation Bible School. It was a great success with over 50 children attending.
Police Record Checks have become a necessity for our volunteers to obtain primarily for insurance purposes, as insurance companies now require that record checks are in place. With this in mind, if you volunteer in helping out with people considered to be vulnerable, i.e. Sunday School, Kids’ Klub, Friendship Supper, etc., please check your church mailbox. Caroline Claridge has put the Police Check Forms in the mailboxes of those who require one. Please call Caroline, 705-746-9612, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.
For the Children
You may wonder if St Andrews looks after the needs of your children. We believe that children should have an age appropriate, excellent Christian experience at our worship services. Children remain with the "big people" for the first part of the service including the "Praise Song" time and, following a time set aside just for them, they go downstairs to have fun, play games, sing songs, meet new friends-and learn how much they matter to God. We also provide a nursery program for children up to age 4.
