Sunday Education for Children & Youth
We will be learning one Bible Story each month through Art, Cooking, Science, Drama & Music offering a new way to learn about God’s love through Stories of the Bible. Your children will learn:
- Know/learn the Bible stories (through repetition for a full month).
- Understand that God loves them.
- Understand that God loves everyone unconditionally.
- Understand that God wants us to reach out to others.
- Experience a practical application, i.e., a tangible way to demonstrate that love.
It’s okay if you have to miss once in a while. Friends can join anytime, and teachers will be rotating.
Youth Beach Party
Youth focused activities are held several times a year.
Available for children 4 and under during Sunday School and Worship time. The Nursery is located in the Child Development Center just off the Community Center.

Adult Bible Study & Conversation Groups
Starting in January 2017, we welcome you to join an adult discussion group, The Wired Word. The topics are based on a news story from the week and come with discussions questions, aimed at helping the group to connect what is happening in the world to Scripture. Each Thursday, the topic will be emailed to group members so you can read about it ahead of time – but no homework is actually required! If you have any questions or would like your email address added to the distribution list, please see Pastor Kim. Class meets in the Church Office.
1st & 3rd Sundays after service at 11:30 (Contact Pastor Kim) Modern Christianity… In September 2016, we will start Living the Questions 2.0, a series with contemporary progressive Christian scholars. The hope is that Conversations about Modern Christianity will be appealing, especially to those who do not find a comfortable fit with popular/traditional Christian understandings. We are not fundamentalists, we are not exclusive, we are not dogmatic, we are not bible thumpers, we are not ignorant, we are not brainwashed, we are not afraid, we are not haters, we are not closed minded. We are compassionate, we are inclusive, we are educated, we are open, we are searchers, we are peaceful, we are earth friendly, and we are social justice supporters. Class begins with 15 min. DVD presentation on some facet of faith followed by discussion led by Pastor Kim or congregation members. Class meets in the Community Center.
These meetings are held at Pleasure House Brewing on Shore Drive from 7-8pm. Each week is a different subject regarding Progressive Christianity (such as “does evil exist,” “what is a calling,” or “how should Christians view marriage”). The meeting is a great opportunity for fellowship and honest discussion (and good beer!). (Watch main page for seasonal dates.)
