Youth Group

For 5th Grade Through High School

The St. Andrew Youth Group encourages children from 5th grade to high school to join in our yearly activities.  This school year, the group will be focusing on two service projects, while learning some really cool things. The service projects are to create an electronic document about all the gifts that have been donated to the church. In this document we hope to bring to life the individuals behind these donations so that all future generations will be able to remember them. Our other service project is to create tie blankets for either donating to a cause or for sale at our church Christmas market. 

Contact Jim George: youthgroup@standrewsgrayslake.org


When it comes to learning, we are using the book 75 Masterpieces Every Christian Should Know to guide us through great works like The Chronicles of Narnia, It’s a Wonderful Life, Joshua Tree by U2, Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh, and many others. 


We meet every Sunday at 9:00 am in the Rectory (the house next to church on Park Avenue). All are welcome to join. See you Sunday!
