                 (required for all off-campus events)

Sunday Morning –

      Sunday School at 9 AM
We meet in the Coffee Lounge at 9 AM to grab an espresso drink and explore life and faith.  During Advent we will be learning about and serving local ministries.  

       Worship at 10 AM

Join the St. Andrew’s church family in the sanctuary to give praise to our Creator and Lord, to hear the Word of God proclaimed, and to join in bringing love, joy, hope, and peace to our neighborhood.  
       
        Special Events Throughout the year.  
Kickoff Sunday Couch Olympics, Corn Maze, Laser Tag, etc. often happen on Sunday afternoons or evenings.  


Mission – 
         One night a month we go and serve our local community.  This Fall we are exploring 4 local agencies that help children and families in crisis.  There is also a service element to the weekly youth group meetings.  

The High School Mission Trip has been a central feature of St. Andrew’s Youth Ministry for a long time. We have a partnership with the Bay Area Rescue Mission in Richmond, California that started in the Summer of 2010.  We will be serving with them again at Christmas time and next Summer.  


Special Events –

         We have special events on a monthly basis, such as the Sr. High Fall Retreat, Middle School Mania*, Winter Ski Retreat, 30 Hour Famine, CPYA*, and Summer Camps. 

* CPYA and Middle School Mania are all-area youth group gatherings, for high school and middle school, respectively. 

The Leadership Team – 

         Jeremy Watson is the Associate Pastor of Family Life, and oversees the youth ministry.  He works on the Youth Team with Marie Dolson (elder), Brad Van Allen, Laura Faulkner, Tom MacDonald, and Kathy Alvarez.  Together they recruit a number of students and adults to lead the youth ministry. Email Jeremy at jeremy.d.watson@gmail.com

Getting Connected –
         There are so many ways to get connected.  Email or call (503-246-4276) with all of your information.  You should also click the link below to join the St. Andrew’s Salt Company Facebook page.  Text message announcements are sent regularly as well, if that’s your style.  



We call our Youth Programs “The Salt Company” after Jesus’ saying in Matthew 5:13 “You are the salt of the earth.”
