All young people ages 6 to teens are invited to develop life skills of:
gratitude,
mindfulness,
intention setting,
affirmations, and
positive attitudes.

All youth should arrive by 10:30 am and be seated with the adults.
After the welcome, the young people will be sung to. At this time they move to the youth classrooms with their teachers.

Children birth to 5 are welcome to participate in our childcare during service or remain in the Sanctuary with their family.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Objective:
We will introduce that idea to the children through exploring the virtues of determination, idealism, confidence and flexibility. The reasons we chose those are set forth in the unique intention for each week.

Food for thought: CSL values, embraces and celebrates the individual uniqueness and contribution of all people as they express through differences of gender, gender expression, ethnicity, culture, history, experience, talents and sexual orientation. We include representatives from all our organizational constituencies in leadership, sacred service and decision-making.

Intention:
Being open for the need for change. Everything thing grows. Change is part of our growth and life. Once you see the need to change, want to change, and decide to change, then little by little you make the adjustments that mean change. (Let go of old habits, make new ones, etc.) Being flexible helps us to grow through change with greater ease.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Our youth programs are participating in our 2017 theme:
Values Based Spiritual Living

They will focus on the same topics as the main service,
in age appropriate ways.

In months with 5 Sundays, our youth will remain with the adults for special Family Sundays in which the children and families will participate in special parts of the morning.
