Our Youth & Family Ministry team is expanding and growing and lots of wonderful things are unfolding.

We currently are meeting on Zoom. In youth church, we use the CSL Youth Curriculum, as well as other resources that we feel are appropriate for the spiritual development of our young people. Other aspects of the ministry include special events, celebrations, outings, attending camp, quarterly parent meetings, choir & participation in delivering Youth Sunday Service. Some special projects include Spiritual Activism, Junior Toast Masters Club, Kwanzaa and CSL Youth Council.

We tailor a program designed to your child(s) needs based on their age/grade. Our children, teens and pre-teens program is available at 12 noon every Sunday. Service includes check ins, discussion, gardening, community building, meditation, yoga, prayer, energizers, on-line activities, music and movement. We encourage parents to connect their children to Sunday Morning services.

While sheltering in place, Youth Sunday is an opportunity for the youth to show who they are and what they learn during Sunday Service. On this day, our youth sing with the choir, share what they are discovering and how they will incorporate these discoveries into their lives, and/or show their creative expression projects.

We are grateful for what’s unfolding and expanding as our vision for our Youth & Family Ministry buds and blossoms. We say Yes! and look forward to having your families be a part of this East Bay Church Ministry.
