Program Description

We are excited to continue “Compassionate Kids,” our successful afternoon program for children, with a spiritual emphasis.

Our program helps children from Kindergarten to 7th grade develop thoughtful values, a sense of caring, and personal responsibility and reflection. Through Bible stories, art, drama, music and community service projects, children explore and experience ways of creating peace, tolerance, kindness and empathy.

Learning and music time is overseen by Rev. Stephanie Ryder. Stephanie is the Pastor at Redwoods Presbyterian Church and was formerly the Music Director and Pastoral Associate for Community Formation. She is assisted at times by elementary school and Redwoods Sunday School teacher Molly Rademacher. A snack time with veggies, juice and other healthy treats will be supervised by Diane Forster and Debbie Lundberg.

The program, open to children of all faiths, starts a spring session soon and will meet at 3:30 pm on Wednesdays, March 29, April 5, 12, 19 & 26; May 17, 24 & 31 and June 7 with participation in worship at 10 am on April 30, May 28 and June 11. Cost is $100.

If you would like to have your children participate in this program, please contact Stephanie Ryder at 415-992-2411 or stephryder1@gmail.com.
