Sundays during Church, 10 a.m.
Ages 4 to 11
UCC Simi is committed to progressive religious education and Sunday School is a chance talk about things that aren’t discussed in school while affirming teachings from home. My hope is to have children build lifelong spiritual joy.
I love to teach. More importantly, I love having a trusting, nurturing classroom where the kids teach me. A typical class may include anything from prayer, songs and music, games, lessons, time outside, sharing time, meditation, crafts, speaking, plays, to scriptures and bible stories. Our classroom is a place to encourage faith (and doubt) with lessons that are heart-centered and experiential, engaging feelings and bodies and minds. It’s also a place for me to help kids discover their own superpowers and gifts.
Our theme this year is Asking for Forgiveness. Just imagine a world where everyone knew how to take responsibility for their wrong doings, to ask for forgiveness, and to build relationships?
Who knows what exciting lessons will happen? I'll never forget my own Sunday School teacher, Mr. Johnson, giving us roses from his garden wrapped in wet paper towel and foil. I want to create these happy memories for our kids, too.
Contact us for more information or to speak with me. We’d love to have you and your kids visit!

Sometimes Sunday school does not move in the way you expect. Last week, the lesson was about forgiveness. I asked them if they could remember some time when somebody did something that made them feel bad. One youth told how a teacher had unjustly singled him out for humiliation in the class. Some recounted how a bully had abused them.
Then I asked them if the bad feeling was the same today. They all agreed that it was.
