Children & Youth
There is a place for every child in our church. Regular Church School classes are held every Sunday for children ages 3 years through 8th grade. Our team teachers and excellent Godly Play based curriculum make the classes interesting and exciting. High school youth assist in the classrooms and sing in the choir.
Family worship is a time where all our children remain in the service with their families. Worship leadership that day includes our children and our youth. It is interactive, fun and engaging. The music, sermon, scripture and prayers provide an intergenerational experience. Join us as the children lead us in prayers of thanksgiving, celebrate communion or share meditations on the scripture themes for the day with their church family. Infant and toddler care are always available.
- October 6th - led by our Mid High youth, this will be an exciting worship service focused on World Communion.
- November 17th - led by our 4-5th graders we will be giving them their first Bible and we will also be welcoming our friends from Peninsula Temple Beth El to our service as well.
- December 15th - our Children's Christmas Music service - a truly moving celebration of Christmas!
Infant and Toddler Care
Where do you go when your infant needs some TLC and you are in worship? Come to the Infant Room. The room is right near the sanctuary, furnished with a rocking chair, changing area and infant toys. In this room you can sit with your child for a while and hear the sermon or leave him or her with our Nursery Mom, Lili Ruiz.
For those youngsters who are walking, exploring and need more space, a Toddler Room is also available in the Christian Education Building. The Toddler Room is a caring place for little children where they will receive love, attention and a snack. They are lovingly cared for by our Toddler Moms.
Mid-High Youth (6-8th grade)
Sundays: First Sunday of the month, Mid Highs attend worship and celebrate communion with their church family. There will be opportunities for worship leadership. All other Sundays, there is a special Mid-High program in the Library across from the Sanctuary Balcony during Church School (10:45 to 11:30AM). This is a time of fun, togetherness, learning and exploration of an engaging and relevant spirituality.
Senior High Youth (9-12th grade)
Sundays: Sr. High Youth are welcome to join us for worship each Sunday and for youth fellowship afterwards. Our Sr. High youth are involved in various leadership roles throughout our church. We have Sr. High retreats, attend the various camps led by the Northern California Nevada Conference (NCNC) and have a mission trip every summer.
Youth Fellowship Programs (6-12th grades)
Sundays: All youth meet after worship up in the CCSM Youth Room (2nd floor of our CE building) for lunch, games, time of fellowship and topical discussions. We will explore a variety of spiritual practices, arts, music and engage in a number of service project throughout the year.
Hope to see you there!
