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.
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.
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.
