Parent Calendar 2021-2022
We love investing in our parents here at St. Andrew’s Youth Ministry, not only because we know you have the most influence over your student, but also because we just genuinely like you! You’re pretty amazing if you ask us.
We offer quarterly Parent Meetings for you to meet other parents and find out what is happening at St. Andrew’s Youth Ministry. We offer Parent Nights where we will talk about what is going on in the world of your student and how to engage them. Plus, we even have monthly Coffee With the Youth Ministry Director dates where you can come unscheduled and connect with the Youth Ministry Director at any point fo their work day. It’s pretty rad.
