Youth & Family Ministry

Our Mission is to create a safe, accepting, and sacred place to empower and enrich youth and families.


Oneness within our Youth & Family Ministry

Youth & Family Ministry is open for nursery through high school (12th grade/Senior) every Sunday during service. Please come upstairs with your child to sign in and receive parent information.

What We Teach our Children

  • We teach our children that God is Life – the Life within each of them and in all Creation – that all people are children of the One God, regardless of race, color, or creed and therefore all are brothers and sisters.
  • We teach that God is good, all good, and we are all created in the image of God and therefore all good.
  • We teach that God is Love, that we love God because God loves us. We obey God’s laws through Love not fear.
  • We teach that sin is a mistake, and when we make mistakes we experience the consequences of them not punishment by God.
  • We teach that God is Spirit and is present everywhere; that this Spirit is within us and speaks to us through our minds and hearts as we listen.
  • We teach that there are Spiritual Laws that must be obeyed just as we obey man-made laws.
  • We teach that religion is a way of life to be lived everyday.
  • We teach the Religious Science is a philosophy that can be lived at home, at school, and at play. That since God is within us – heaven is also within us – that as we live our lives in harmony with God’s Laws we live in heaven NOW.
  • We teach that in God’s Love we are already whole and perfect.
  • We teach that God is: Truth, Beauty, Peace, and Harmony, that as we recognize our Unity with God our lives are filled with Health, Happiness and Success.
  • We teach that nothing is too wonderful to happen, nothing is too good to be true, and everything is possible with God.

Rules for Fun at CSL

  • I will treat you with respect, so you will know how to treat me.
  • Feel free to do anything that doesn’t cause a problem for anyone else.
  • If you cause a problem, I will ask you to solve it.
  • If you can’t solve the problem, or choose not to, I will do something.
  • What I do, will depend on the special person, and the special situation.
  • If you feel something is unfair, whisper to me, “I’m not sure that’s fair,” and we will talk.
