1st - 4th grades Soul Matters & Stories of Courage & Wisdom
This class will be engaged in Soul Matters themes that will be explored in Sunday services: Welcome, Courage, Appreciation, Wonder, Intention, Devotion, Balance, Emergence, Imagination and Celebration. The children will experience these themes in the stories of people who have acted with courage and wisdom in their attempts to fully live their lives and make the world a better place. Each session strives to be experiential and is designed to engage children in three fundamental spiritual experiences; what we call “the three S’s.”
Silence = meditation, listening, mindfulness.
Service = leadership, helping others
Sunshine = connection with our bodies through movement
5th - 8th grades — Crossing Paths: World Religions
Crossing Paths celebrates the values that religions share, but it emphasizes their uniqueness. Every world faith tradition was born in response to a distinct human struggle. We honor religions best when we work to understand the challenge and aspiration each religion has devoted itself to. Crossing Paths invites youth to see the religious landscape as “Many Mountains, Many Paths.” The class will also visit the diverse faith traditions that call Santa Clara County home.
