The purpose of the Youth and Family Ministry is to provide a fun, safe and joyful experience of Spirit on Sunday mornings, with extra-curricular activities interspersed throughout the year.

This is done through lessons, stories, craft projects, games and lively discussions, all with the intention of creating an understanding of the Science of Mind and Spirit in a meaningful way, in an age appropriate way.

 

“Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future.”

~ John F. Kennedy

A child's life is like a piece of paper on which every passerby leaves a mark.

Sunday Service Classes

Each Sunday’s lesson correlates to the overall theme and monthly/weekly topics that are going on throughout our Spiritual Center. This allows parents and children to discuss the ideas and spiritual tools that are presented so it’s a congruent experience.

Our Youth Ministry not only nurtures and educates our children today, it prepares them with valuable tools for tomorrow. As part of our Youth Ministry is our Teen Group, which is very active and vital. Each Sunday they gather in their own space and have meaningful discussions and create deep bonding. Our teens attend the regional camps offered by Centers for Spiritual Living, where they gain a bigger sense of their impact in the world.  Camps have been life-changing for our teens.

Offered concurrently during the 11:00 a.m. Sunday Service, each of the groups has its own lesson led by capable and trained volunteer teachers. The Youth and Family Ministry Leader is Gretchen Giambra, who, along with her husband Jason, is also a Licensed Prayer Practitioner.

Gretchen says, “We look forward to having your kids in our Youth Ministry and to meeting all of the families!”
