Light Source Village: Kids Knowing Peace and Joy
Happy New Year! Winter is here, the natural cycle of rain is causing new plants to grow in our Children's Garden. The Light Source Village Tweens and Teens Youth program at the 10:30 AM service every Sunday is for kids of all ages, newborn to 18. This month our theme is The Sacred Journey and our God Quality is Freedom.
Contact me to find out more about our Teachers community! We have one paid position and a few 1 time per month volunteer leads and assistant teacher slots in the youth program. Engage the principles and lessons from the Sunday services as a teacher and you will open to new ways of understanding and utilizing the spiritual tools and concepts of the New Thought philosophy. We have monthly teachers meetings that create and hold conscious space using practices that support us on our spiritual path and in turn allow us to hold space for the children to thrive in their spiritual lessons. In 2019, teachers will be receiving holistic child development training. We also offer scholarships to Youth teachers for Core (certificated) Science of Mind® classes at the Center.
This year, thanks to a grant to the Center, we will have Luvmour Consulting, who specialize in holistic human development, provide teacher training. They will also speak at a Sunday service and lead a community-wide children and parents symposium with hands-on activities to encourage us all to “Grow Together,” which is also the title of Josette Luvmour's book.
As the Youth Director, I am Thankful to be in support of this community. Please feel free to contact me, Laurie Buckman Massengale, at 530-440-2924 with any questions.
