Tara Dance Meditation
Kathryn Henderson is presenting the opportunity for us to join her in this artful meditation each month. It is truly a dance of universal peace. The intention is to manifest the qualities of Tara in ourselves and send love and compassion to others and the world. Dress comfortably. If you love to dance, you will enjoy the freedom of expression in the ways this dance comes together. If you love to pray and move, this opportunity calls you. It is deeply moving and sacred. We are thrilled to offer this to our community each month as another way to invest in your spiritual practices. Men and women are invited. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Sue MillerBorn.

The Men's Group centers around discussions and creating friendship among the male members of our community. We continue to examine topics brought by the men who attend. Our goal is to allow each man to become a better human being. Bring your issues. Bring your ideas (spiritual and other ideas), articles and poems. It is for the men in the circle to create a dynamic and safe space to explore who we are and what we want to become. The Men's Group meets the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month from 7:00 to 9:00 PM in the Sanctuary. Contact: Roy Woolfstead | (530) 246-1017 | email@example.com
The children and youth of our Center are very important to us. We offer four programs during our 10:30AM Sunday Services, a nursery for young ones and three more groups, based on age, all designed to share spiritual ideas in a loving and supportive environment. Our focus is often on non-traditional learning using the resources of our Center site and the creek that runs through it as well as field trips to various local sites to help share spiritual concepts. The programs are under the direction of Diana Johnson and her staff of marvelous, volunteer teachers.
Source Youth Group (Ages 13 - 18)
The teen years are a time of incredible spiritual interest and development. Our youth group meets on Sunday afternoons from 1-3 PM in the Center’s LightSource Village. A dedicated duo of volunteer advisors, James Massengale and Jamie Weil, guide the teens. Each meeting includes a time of personal sharing, a workshop based on a spiritual principle, and a business meeting run by the teens themselves. The teens travel to two camps, one three-day camp in the winter, and a weeklong camp in the summer. Throughout the year they participate in fundraising efforts to attend camp and joint gatherings of local youth groups in the North State. Our teens consistently report that youth group makes a tremendous impact on their lives! Contact: James Massengale | (209) 988-2829
Tweens Group (Ages 10 - 12)
This group is “betwixt and between” in their development into youth. They aren’t kids anymore (in their view) and they’re not teens either. They certainly do not want to spend a perfectly great Sunday morning listening to someone talk! We build more complex spiritual concepts with this group with an emphasis on preparing them for the transition into their teen years and participation in our youth group. Contact: Diana Johnson | (530) 356-1227
Love Lights (Ages 7 - 9)
As our children begin to mature, they are ready for more abstract and complex spiritual concepts. This group continues to learn through exposure to the outdoors, art and movement with more hands-on learning of core spiritual concepts. As much as possible, we use experiential learning through activities that involve the children in the concepts that they are learning. Contact: Diana Johnson | (530) 356-1227
Little Lights (Ages 4 - 6)
Lessons and activities for this age group are centered on experiential learning. We often involve the children with art, games, music and outdoor activities while conveying the spiritual basics of love, kindness, compassion and empowerment. Because we run an active program, we encourage parents to consider bringing their children in casual clothing. We love having parent and grandparent volunteers as extra hands for this wonderful group. Contact: Diana Johnson | (530) 356-1227
Nursery (Ages 0 - 3)
We provide a stimulating environment for the smallest of our Sunday attendees with a wonderful playground designed for young people, warm and caring teachers and a wireless parent notification system in the event that little ones cannot be soothed by anyone but their parents. On Sundays, parents need to complete a registration form on each of their children. Each child is to be signed in for attendance tracking in the foyer before church and then signed out at the cottage when church is over. Upon signing in on our attendance roster, each child shall receive a white name tag, to be worn throughout the morning. Every volunteer working with Children’s Church or youth group has a background check run on them, regardless of any relationship with any child. Contact: Diana Johnson | (530) 356-1227
