Mountain Room

Class Description:

Grades 7-9

Spiritual Theme: It’s all about me. The power of transformation.

The Junior Teen class consists of youth who are grade 6-9. Each Sunday, our curriculum is structured to align with the topic being addressed in the Sunday service for adults. We read, discuss, share, and do activities which are designed to bring the message home, relating it to real, everyday life. We practice respect and confidentiality.

We recognize and celebrate our diversity, unique individuality, and oneness. We delve into learning and understanding the spiritual concepts and tools which are taught at CSLDallas. We also practice using these spiritual tools (e.g. spiritual mind treatment, meditation, and affirmations) in class. We have fun! We are open and receptive, and welcome all newcomers
