Our Philosophy of Christian Education 


St. Andrew’s Christian Education is sharing the good news of  
Jesus Christ to enable all to have transformation occur within their hearts and minds giving them the tools they need to live a Christian life. All are welcome to be part of, and to connect to, this nurturing and safe environment growing in faith in community together. 

St. Andrew’s Christian Education provides meaningful opportunities for all ages to renew their hearts and minds specifically by: 

- Explaining the Christian story, the Bible, past and present 

- Identifying who God is, and how God is active in our lives 

- Developing a close relationship with, and understanding of, Jesus and his ministry 

- Explaining and experiencing, the Holy Spirit’s activeness in our lives 

- Articulating the meaning of the Trinity 

- Describing growth of faith, development and character formation 

- Applying skills to act out our faith 

- Composing and experiencing prayer, individually and corporately 

- Providing outreach and connecting within our church  
and community 

- Demonstrating observable self-learning to continue maturing in scriptural knowledge and application
