Children’s & Youth Programs

We believe Not in indoctrinating children,

but rather strive to encourage our children’s natural curiosity

about the world they live in and will inherit.

Most Sundays, Our Children’s and Youth program offers three hours of crafted curriculum and activities designed to foster lifelong exploration of religious thought, values, and spiritual development. All programs—for children, youth, and adults—promote learning and personal development by means of free inquiry, mutual respect, and responsible behavior. To foster this development, we offer age appropriate programs for your children.

As a safety measure, we require that all children and youth attending CYP are checked-in upon arrival and checked-out upon leaving
