Fall Kickoff | Mid August

With the beginning of the new school year, Saint Andrews sets aside a Wednesday (in conjunction with the school calendar) as a day of prayer and consecration of the coming year. Parishioners are invited to spend a period of time in quiet prayer and to make petition and intercession for the parish. The day culminates in a special Eucharist written for Saint Andrew’s and authorized by the Bishop.

Vacation Bible School | Beginning of June

Vacation Bible School is typically held the first week of June at the church, from 9am to noon each day, for children aged 4 years through rising 5th graders. The primary purpose is to learn about God.  We do this by teaching the stories of the Bible and our Christian traditions.  Learning about God is made fun through arts and crafts, play acting, and music. The week is concluded with a celebration on the Collierville Square to showcase what the children have learned.
