Youth and Family

OUR APPROACH

We are committed to creating a Sunday morning program where all children experience their oneness with God, form loving connections with one another and learn Science of Mind spiritual principles and practices. We believe that nurturing the unique spirit of a child produces expressions of unlimited possibilities that will last a lifetime.

THIS MONTH’S THEMES


SUNDAY CELEBRATION CHILDREN’S SCHEDULE

 

WHILE WE ARE IN QUARANTEEN

We are offering a special weekly family edition of News and Resources email filled with fun and engaging songs, books, lessons, and mindful activities for kids, as well as practical discussion tools for parents. You can also access these and more from our Youth & Family – Center for Spiritual Living Facebook page.  

Parents, your children have access to Sunday youth class on Zoom with Adrienne while you enjoy your spiritual practice with our CSL Olympia service Zoom each Sunday, both at 11am. Please find access information in your Youth & Family News and Resources email.  

For further information contact: youth at cslolympia.org

Consistency pays off. Your children will feel more a part of the community if they develop connections with other kids through regular attendance.

We love seeing our members as a family. Your children are always welcome to take part in the regular service instead of the children’s program.

LITTLE MEMBERS, BIG IDEAS

Our program is designed to teach spiritual principles in age-appropriate, interactive, and fun ways. We follow the Centers for Spiritual Living children’s curriculum and include additional meaningful activities of our own. Through stories, music, craft projects, drama and discussion, our youngest members awaken their creative expression and learn the same spiritual principles presented during the adult Sunday Celebration. The entire month’s lesson plan is available for parents to review.

TEENS CHANGING THE WORLD

Teens are empowered by the authentic bonds they create through practicing expressions of love, compassion, forgiveness, and empathy. Participating in creative games, workshops, and partner collaborations using the Science of Mind principles gives them the tools to become deep listeners, inclusive friends, and doers in their community who radiate passion and purpose with integrity and love. This inclusive, supportive environment allows teens experiencing various challenges a place to work through and transform themselves into the Divine with limitless possibilities and fresh perspectives to express out in the world.

Teen Camps: Every year, the teens of the Centers for Spiritual Living teens and youth group advisors have had the opportunity to go to two teen camps – one in the summer, and one in the winter.  Due to COVID-19, the Teen Camps have been canceled but the team is working on creating a virtual sacred and engaging program. We will update our information as we receive it.

Our Youth have their own Facebook page – check it out!
