Youth Ministry meets every Sunday at 10:00am during the Sunday Service. Check in with the lead teacher or the Director of Youth & Family in the lobby, or go directly to the stage to sign your children in and stay with them until we leave for our classroom. You are welcome to stay with your children until they feel comfortable in the classroom.

Youth & Family Ministry Vision

  • To educate and empower youth with Science of Mind principles
  • To build the self-esteem of children through the awareness of their own spiritual connection
  • To create a global awareness and global responsibility

Current Offering

  • Infant and Toddler Care (9 months to Pre-K)
  • Children's Class (Kindergarten to 5th Grade)
  • Pre-Teen (6th Grade and above)


Our curriculum includes innovative Sunday programs to help children learn, embrace, and celebrate the Science of Mind Principles, world religions, the virtues of compassion and peace, and diversity. We have monthly themes with stories and quotes from various philosophies and religions. A craft or project supports the topic of the day. Each class provides age-appropriate activities and discussion.

The 5 Steps of Spiritual Mind Treatment for Children

Step 1 "God is all there is."   Point with index finger and circle it around above head.
Step 2 "I am one with God."   Hold up one finger in front of body.
Step 3 "I know and accept [fill in the blank]."
(Example: "more fun in my life."
Name a quality of God rather than
a specific thing.)
  Point finger toward head (know) and then place hand over heart (accept).
Step 4 "I give thanks."   Hold hands together in front of body, palms together, in prayer position.
Step 5 "And I release it to God."   Hold hands outstretched in front of body with palms up.
