Serving Children, Youth and Families

We support the spiritual and intellectual growth of children and youth within our church and community through a variety of programs. Our activities provide a safe, fun environment for children and youth to communicate openly, learn about faith, and develop as individuals.


Sunday School

Sundays | 10:00 am

The children begin the worship service with their parents in the Los Altos UCC sanctuary. They are dismissed after Children’s Time to either Sunday School or Children’s Church.

We offer a values-based curriculum for our Sunday School classes. Games and crafts are some of the fun ways we help children learn. The youth group, led by youth coordinator Sumer Lesser, has sharpened its focus and is the midst of planning both social and service-based activities.

2022-2023 Sunday School Curriculum

Narrative Lectionary Year 1 – “Guided by God’s Promises”
PreK/K (ages 3-5), Grades 1-5, & Youth Group – Grades 6-12

“Guided by God’s Promises” is a series by “Spirit & Truth Publishing” based on the scriptures from the Narrative Lectionary. This curriculum will explore the theme of God’s promises starting in Genesis and landing in the Book of Acts and Paul’s Letter to the Romans way off in May of 2023.


Vacation Bible School
