WE LOVE KIDS! Mt. Tam Church strives to be a place that nurtures your spirit and supports your family. Our vision is that each and every person –all ages –find a place to grow in faith and joy. Children are the heart of our ministry and mission, and forming families of deep values, generous hearts and strong bonds are the foundation of what we do. Children and Families Minister Tricia Wiig brings joy and passion to her work with our children and their families.

Bagel Breakfast Sunday School Kickoff Party - Sept. 10th!
Our annual Bagel Breakfast kicks off the start of our 2017-2018 Sunday School program. Please join us in the courtyard outside Room 1 before church on Sunday, September 10th, at 9:30AM. Enjoy bagels, fresh fruit, juice and coffee. You and your children will have a chance to meet their teachers and make some new friends. After the children's lesson during worship, children may go with their teacher to Sunday School.
Children age 4 through Grade 3 will meet in Room 1. Grades 4-6 will meet in Room 2. Youth grades 7-12 will meet in the lounge. As always, the nursery is open from the start of worship for children under age 4. Hope to see you there!
Babies and Toddlers
For families with very young children, there is loving, nursery care available from 10:15-11:45am (9:15-10:45 in July & August). If children would like to remain in worship, there are 2 toyboxes in the back of the sanctuary on each side and a rocker and toybox in the narthex, where the service can be heard over the loudspeakers.
Children begin the morning in worship with their families, with joyful music and bringing in the light of Christ. Each Sunday, they gather for the children's sermon with Pastor Kim and afterwards are invited to remain with their families in worship or participate in Sunday School. We offer 2 Sunday School classes: Age 4 - Grade 3 using the Godly Play curriculum, and Grades 4 - 6 using the Seasons of the Spirit Encore Curriculum. On first Sundays of the month, children return to worship near the end of the service to have communion with their families. On fifth Sundays of the month, all children and youth remain in the service for a fun, interactive, inter-generational worship. During the summer months, children, ages 4 and up, meet together for One Room Sunday School.
Kids' Craft Nights - Imagine No Malaria
The children of the church gather for craft nights throughout the year to create handmade items to sell at our Annual Holiday Bazaar. The kids host their very own booth with their handmade items, raising money for "Imagine No Malaria." Proceeds benefit those in countries affected by malaria by providing mosquito nets, education on malaria prevention and other critical items.
December 3rd is this year's Santa Workshop. Children make gifts for their parents and loved ones for the Holiday season.
Peace Camp - June 25th-29th, 2018

Campers will be immersed in peacemaking activities as experienced through spiritual practices, the arts, cooperative outdoor games, yoga, music and more. Our mission is to equip and empower children, through God's love and grace, to be peacemakers in the world. All faiths and spiritual traditions are welcome to learn, grow and play with us!
