I’m excited to share the vision of our Church Within’s Children’s Ministry. The ministry grows out of the three “reminders” that you will see on the wall as you enter the sanctuary:
All People are Holy
Many Paths One God
Only Love is Real
The goal of each Sunday (and Monday – Saturday too!) is to teach our children, Toddlers through Teens, lessons that they won’t have to worry about re-learning later in life. What are the basics to living whole lives?
Our spiraling curriculum is developed with this and the following questions in mind:
- Is the universe a friendly place?
- What is the nature of the people of the world?
- How do we interact with others?
- What is nature itself?
- What is love?
- What does it mean to serve?
The common answers of such question are that God/Source/Creator/Spirit is within us all. And through all of these things, our oneness can’t help but emerge. Our learning’s include lessons from our greatest teachers. You may sit in on a lesson where we see how Jesus, Buddha, and Rumi’s messages all come to a common learning objective. You may find us learning and honoring Native American Spirituality. You may even be invited to a Celtic dance celebration led by the children!
