Our families are important!
Our CYF Board works year round to serve the spiritual needs of all members of the family, through Christian education in Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, adult Bible study, and seasonal learning and fellowship events. CYF also recognizes milestone events (learning the Lord's Prayer, graduating high school, etc.), and helps provide for youth gatherings and mission activities.
Please note that for the safety of all our families and yours, meetings and seasonal events are temporarily postponed in 2020.
During the Sunday education hour (9:15 - 10:15 am), children's Sunday school is offered on the second level for Pre-K through lower elementary, and upper elementary through middle school students. Our teachers provide Bible story education, activities and prayer time. The middle and high schoolers engage through Bible study.
Note: The nursery is temporarily closed in 2020 for the safety of all our families. Our Pacific Hills nursery is staffed by Jessica Stuttle, a child care professional of more than 20 years. Miss Jessica manages the nursery from 9:00 am through noon on Sundays. You are welcome to bring your littles any time before or during Sunday School or service. The nursery has a secured entry, and a sign in/sign out procedure to provide for your child’s safety.
An audio system plays the service in real time, so little ones are exposed to the music and liturgy. When your child does join you in service, it will be more familiar to him or her. A variety of books and toys help with large and small motor skills. A restroom and changing station are attached to the nursery.
We look forward to seeing you. Stop by and meet Miss Jessica on Sunday morning!
Adult Bible Study
Adult Bible study is held Sunday morning between services, during the education hour, in Acker Hall on the lowest level. The program is typically focused on the day's church readings (pericope), and includes both small group discussion and pastor-led Scripture lessons. On occasion, other topical studies are held, and some are led by visiting pastors or missionaries, or a lay leader.
Vacation Bible School
Each summer, Pacific Hills offers VBS to families of the congregation and the community. Children and youth participate in theme-based Bible stories, crafts, games, science and music. Adults have a short Bible study course at the same time. The evening program typically includes dinner beforehand.
CYF hosts Rally Day to kick off the Sunday school year, provides turkey dinner for the annual congregation meeting, and helps with other family activities and gatherings at Pacific Hills.
