MINDFULLNESS NATURE WALKS

We have 3 separate groups (Kindergarten and younger families; 1st-5th graders and their families; Jr. & Sr. High Youth) that each meet monthly gathering for kid friendly mindfulness walks. We walk together and stop a couple times along the way to learn and practice mindfulness exercises.  Each month we meet at a different park.  Everyone over 2 years old must wear a mask.  Email Pastor Peggy for more information.  Stay informed about our current dates and locations here.

We have a great program for our 1st-3rd graders called GLOW: God’s Little Outreach Workers.

JUNIOR & SENIOR HIGH YOUTH GROUP

The Community Church of Mountain Lakes has one combined Youth Group for Junior High & Senior High Youth (6th-12th grade). We meet quarterly for mission and leadership.  The focus of our youth group is doing service  and developing leadership skills.  The group engages in quarterly service projects as well as periodic fun fellowship activities.  

In addition to quarterly Youth Group events, we offer 2 overnight programs for our teens: 

Appalachian Service Project (ASP) - Each summer we send a group of youth and adults to a part of Appalachia for a summer service experience through Appalachian Service Project. All youth 14+ are invited to attend. Our attendees host a variety of fundraisers, including our ever-popular Soup Sale to raise funds for the trip. For more information on our mission trip, look here.

Camp Bernie Youth Retreat – We take part in a retreat for youth grades 6-12 from local United Church of Christ congregations. It’s a weekend of “epic fun and friendship” that takes place every year in February at the YMCA Camp Bernie in Port Murray, NJ.  All Jr. & Sr. High Youth are invited to attend. 

Due to COVID-19 this group is not currently meeting in it's regular capacity.  Join us for a mindfulness walk instead!
