Curricula: PreK-5th graders will explore the same theme of the month that their adults hear in the sanctuary, but in age appropriate way. Our time on-site with each age group strives to be experiential. In other words, each session is designed to engage children in three fundamental spiritual experiences; what we call“The Three S’s.” We see the “three S’s” as an antidote and alternative to competitive, media-saturated and materialistic culture.
Silence = meditation, listening, mindfulness,
Service = leadership, helping others
Sunshine = connection with nature and our bodies through outdoor activities or movement.”
After three or four visits, or when you know this is the faith community for your family:
