Adult Christian Education

Through worship, study and service to others, we at St. Andrew’s try to live faithfully as disciples. The “study” component for adults includes Christian Formation opportunities offered in various times and formats:

On Sundays:

  • Sunday Class at 9:00 a.m.: Adults and youth are invited for thoughtful and lively discussions on a variety of topics pertaining to our spiritual lives. Grab a cup of coffee at the Coffee Bar and join us! Meets in the Music Room.

During the Week:

  • Women of the Word (WOW) meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the Parish Library for a book or bible study led by the clergy. Each study lasts from five to eight weeks. All women are invited to participate.
  • Thursday Morning Bible Study meets at 10 to 11:15 a.m. every Thursday, September through May, in the Parish Library. Participants increase their knowledge of the bible through guided reading and discussion in a relaxed, supportive setting.
  • Centering Prayer is offered at 5:30 p.m. Mondays and 7:30 a.m. on Thursdays in the Parish Library.
  • Inquirer’s Class (Episcopal 101) offered at various times throughout the year.
  • A weekly program is offered during the season of Lent.

Christian Formation offerings for youth (Grades 6-12)

EYC (Episcopal Youth Community)
Meets 5 to 7 p.m. on Sunday evenings

This is an energetic community that gathers on Sunday evenings from September to May to worship, enjoy fellowship, have fun, and participate in Bible-based discussions on topics of everyday life, world issues, and their faith. We also discuss where God is stirring in everyday life, in social media, and the entertainment media. A meal or snack is included at each gathering. Each program offered nurtures our youth on their spiritual journeys. Friends and neighbors are welcome to join. We also participate in weekend diocesan retreats in the fall and spring.

Outreach for Youth
We support outreach programs throughout the year. These include the Souper Bowl Collection, a Lenten outreach project, the Pittsburgh Project, Hometown Mission Projects in the summer and fall, a Halloween project, the Wreath Project, and monthly youth group outreach hours, and more.

For more information about youth programs call 595-0371 or email saec0371@verizon.net.

Christian Formation offerings for Children

Children’s Chapel
Children’s Chapel, for children age 3 through 5th grade, is offered during the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. Following the Gospel reading, children leave for Chapel and return in time for Communion. Clergy or other leaders offer an age appropriate lesson based on the lectionary of the day and music is led by our Minister of Music Brad Norris.

Vacation Bible School
Hilton Area Churches Vacation Bible School, usually held in early July each year, is an ecumenical program which includes five area churches. It began over 25 years ago and continues to be an important collaborative ministry each summer. Adult and youth volunteers begin preparing months in advance to ensure that the children attending benefit from an enriching Christian education experience. Our volunteers work alongside volunteers from other churches and together share in the mission to communicate God’s love to all. To learn more or get involved, contact the Parish Office, 595-0371 or saec0371@verizon.net.
