Youth & Families

What does a week in the life of a family at South Church look like?

Fall Programming

This fall, all of South Church explores the Beatitudes. We’ll think about who Jesus calls blessed—and who we might call blessed in our world today. For children and youth, there are both ongoing online and limited in-person opportunities.

Please note: all children, youth and young adult programming at South Church requires the wearing of face masks and use of hand sanitizer before participating in the program.

Infants through Elementary Aged Young Ones

This fall, each week brings music videos (for ages 0-5 and K-grade 5) to watch on your own schedule, giving caregivers the opportunity make music with the kids or to get something else done. Sunday School videos for PreK-grade 8 are available on YouTube. Our younger ones gather online for story time at 4:30pm on Tuesdays and are enjoying their Blessing Boxes for a fall season full of surprises! For those interested in an in-person gathering, our Wednesday Wonders offer an opportunity for different ages groups (for grades K-5) to gather outdoors for once a week in October.

Middle & High Schoolers

Once a week our Middle School and High School youth groups meet in-person or online for fun, reflection, and relaxation. Our Youth Choir & Music Program gives instrumentalists and vocalists an opportunity to record music at home and participate in virtual choirs through weekly videos and Zoom calls.
