Mt. Tam United Methodist Church is bringing back a trio of popular events in 2019.

First up is “Grace Within,” a small group gathering for moms. “Come and make some new friends, get to know one another and most importantly, get to know yourself more,” says Tricia Wiig, the church’s Children, Youth and Families Minister. “We’ll focus on topics such as self-acceptance, dealing with stress and worry, practicing spirituality in the everyday, personal growth, friendships and discovering the gifts you bring to the world.

The free series begins Sunday, Feb. 27 and continues every other Wednesday through May 29. Each session is from 9:15am to 10:45am in the church’s Connell Lounge. Childcare provided. RSVP to Wiig here or at 415-388-4456.

Next up is the church’s “The Invitation” series, this year built around a “Our Global Human Family” theme. It kicks off March 10 at 9am in Room 1 on the Mt. Tam Church Campus, and runs each Sunday through March 31. The series explores the question of “who is my neighbor?” and is “based on stories from the Old and New Testaments, using Godly Play as a guide,” Wiig says. “The Invitation Series is perfect for families with children and for people of all ages who are looking for a church service that’s “outside the box” or who are interested in an all-ages Sunday School prior to our regular 10:30 am worship.” Light breakfast is provided and childcare is available for children under 4. RSVP to Wiig here.


Finally, the church has set its “Peace Camp” for kids for the week of June 24-28, 9am-3pm, with extended care (8:30-5:30). Ages 5-12. Cost is $197 per child and $25 for extended care per family, with a request of three hours of parent volunteer time. Campers will be immersed in peacemaking activities as experienced through story telling, spiritual practices, arts and crafts, cooperative outdoor games, yoga, music, and more.

“Our mission is to equip and empower children to be peacemakers in the world,” Wiig says. “All faiths and spiritual traditions (or none) are welcome to learn, grow and play with us! Email for questions or to request a registration form.

The 411: Mt. Tam United Methodist Church is at 410 Sycamore Ave. MORE INFO.
