Youth & Family Village

Youth & Family Village programming launches September 2024!

Our Fall programming will include space for Littles (age 4-9 on 1st Sunday), Tweens (age 10-13 on 2nd Sunday), and Teens (age 14-18 on 3rd Sunday).

This Summer we will have opportunities for young folx and their families to be engaged in community with events and opportunities to participate in community service.

To find out more about the YFV engagement opportunities and information about how adults can serve, please send us an email to be added to our outreach emails.

Our intention is to provide a safe and inclusive* experience for young people to be engaged and connected, that is grounded in Science of Mind Principles and is in alignment with the Heart & Soul Vision of being a loving and compassionate, world class teaching and empowerment ministry.

*Our safe and inclusive environment requires that we fully vet and conduct background checks for all volunteers and adults in leadership or volunteering in one of our programs. Additionally, leaders and volunteers must also have successfully completed a Science of Mind Foundational class.

To find out more about the YFV engagement opportunities, email us.
