Upcoming children and youth ministry events
Sunday, April 2nd – Palm Sunday Procession (all ages)
All children and youth are invited to join us to be part of the Palm Sunday Procession during our 10am service! This is a VERY special Palm Sunday, as we will be joined by our Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Kym Lucas. The Palm procession is always a joyful event, as we carry Palm Leaves in honor of Jesus’ entrance into the Holy City. Bagpipes will lead the procession, and we will ring small bells, sending our joyous noise far up into the Heavens!
Afterward, we will have a short all-ages children and youth program. We will be preparing our Easter goodies for the Easter egg hunt on April 9th. Older youth are especially invited (pleaded with – please join us for this part if you can!) to help us with this one. We’ll have a LOT of eggs to fill!
Sunday, April 9th – Easter egg hunt!
Our younger children are invited to our Easter egg hunt following the morning service on Sunday, April 9th. Bring a basket (of course, we’ll have extras on hand if you don’t have one with you) and search for treats!
And, our older youth are invited to come to the church at 9am to set up the Easter egg hunt for our younger children. I know, I know, it’s early – but it’s not uncommon for yours truly to get home from playing a concert around 2am on a Saturday night and arriving at church by 8:15 the next morning, so you can do this!

Sunday, April 30th – St. Francis Center Day of Service (11 and up)
Join fellow youth from Holy Comforter and St. Barnabas at the St. Francis Center for a day of service work and fellowship. We will gather at 11am at the nearby St. Francis Center apartments. The day will begin with some educational programming to help us learn about the issues affecting our unhoused neighbors and what we can all do to help.
After that, we will spend our afternoon helping to prepare the rooftop gardens the residents use to help prepare fresh food. Once we finish our service work, we will all return to St. Andrew’s for a shared meal, fun and games. NOTE: parents do not need to join us, as we will have several adults with us to ensure the safety of the trip. However, you are welcome to join in if you or your child would feel more comfortable with you there.
