Our Vision

"Inspiring Each Child to Express, Love and Live the Awareness of God"

The Children of CSL Simi ValleyOur Youth and Family Program serves children of all ages. Our Precious Ones are ages infant through three years old, our Sangha Kids are ages four through seven years old, The In-Be-Tweens are ages eight and nine years, our Pre-Teen Rap Group are ages 10 through 12 years. Group activities are designed to meet the emotional and social development of the child.

The Youth and Family Ministry goal is to provide a safe and loving environment for our children to learn the Principles of Science of Mind. The children are taught the principles in a fun, interactive and supportive way through music, stories, games, arts and crafts. The lessons are designed to encourage the children to use what they learn in their daily lives. Each week a program is available to our parents which identifies the weeks topic with information on the lessons purpose and Science of Mind Principle being taught.

On Sunday evenings, we have our Spirit Lights Teen Group.

Our staff invites you to visit with us on any Sunday so that you have the opportunity to experience with your child how the Science of Mind Principles can make a wonderful difference in your child's life on a day to day basis.

Our Infant and Pre-Kindergarten: Ages 0-3 YearsInfant and Pre-Kindergarten: Ages 0 - 3 Years.  Our Child Care Program is designed so that our infants and toddlers have a safe, loving environment in which to begin their journey of discovering the spiritual aspect of themselves. Our teachers and aides offer mini lessons based on Science of Mind Principles. These principles are taught through games, songs, stories and other activities.


Our Sangha Kids

Sangha Kids: Ages 4-7Years. This Youth and Family program is designed for our children four through seven years of age. Our teaching staff creates a safe, loving and accepting environment where our Sangha Kids have the opportunity to experience a great sense of themselves on a spiritual level. Each lesson is based on the Science of Mind philosophy. The basics of Spiritual Mind Treatment (Positive Prayer) are introduced and put into practice through group activities. A craft or project is presented that reinforces the lesson idea. Songs and games are intertwined that continue to instill the principles taught.


In Be-Tween Kids

Our In Be-Tweens group is for children eight and nine years old. This group is for the young people that have grown beyond Sangha Kids, but are not yet ready for our Pre-Teen Group. Their lessons are based on the same ideas being presented in Sangha Kids, but are taken to a deeper level. The lesson ideas move from just looking at themselves to learning how they can use the Science of Mind Principles in creating loving relationships at home, more accepting attitudes in school and being a person that makes a difference in their community. The format contains an introduction to meditation and more discussion with some arts and crafts to provide them a concrete understanding of the principles taught.

In Be-Tween Kids

Our Pre-Teen Rap Group, ages 10 through 12 years, is for the children that have moved beyond our In Be-Tweens Group but not yet ready for our Teen Group that begins at age twelve and a half. The purpose of this group is to give the pre-teens an opportunity to experience workshops, group discussions, meditation and refine their Prayer-Treatment skills at their appropriate age level. All of the lessons are based on the teaching of the Science of Mind. Our Pre-Teen Rap Group only meets at the 10:30 a.m. service. This group is lead by one of our trained staff.


In Be-Tween Kids

We are the Spirit Lights: Our Teen Group, "The Spirit Lights" is for teens ages 12 to 18 years old. The purpose of our group is to create a space for us to develop an awarenss of Gods Presence within, in our daily lives.
As we grow in the awareness that we live in a spiritual universe and that spirit lives in us, we learn to listen to our own Inner Voice. The results; we begin to trust in ourselves more. We also learn how to use the awesome creative power of positive thinking. It's very powerful to know we have the ability to change our lives for the better whenever we decide to. As we change our thinking, we see our lives change also!
The Teen Group is Experiential
The fact is, all people learn best by "doing". Together, we learn spiritual and life principles in group discussion and experiential workshops led by an advisor. I'ts a safe place to be ourselves.
It's not always easy to find friends who don't put a "peer pressure" trip on us. That won't happen here! As we share our dreams, fears, and experiences in a safe, spiritual and nonjudgmental environment, we find acceptance, encouragement and spiritual growth. This is a group where we really learn to develop confidence within ourselves and respect for ourselves and others.
