Preschool – Threes and Fours see the world bursting with newness. Each day is filled with one new discovery after another.

What is middle school life group
For the past few years, we have been offering Home Groups as a mid-week option for students to deepen their relationships with their friends and leaders in a safe, Christian environment and grow closer to God through teaching and discussion on the truths of the Bible and how they apply to life. While our season of Home Groups was very fruitful and fun, we feel it is necessary to make some changes in order to strive more and more towards the call of discipleship in the lives of students. Life Groups are going to be similar to Home Groups in a couple of ways. One, we are asking some of you parents who feel led, to be willing to open your home once a week for a Life Group to be held. Two, we are still going to be growing deeper in our relationships with others and God. However, Life Groups will be different than Home Groups in that each home will host one Life Group which consists of one of our trained Leaders and about eight students all of the same gender.
How do I get my child plugged in?
Life Groups are registration based, and how it works is once we receive an online registration form we look at a few different things like your child’s age/grade, school/where you live and what friends/leader they want to be with. Once this information is taken into consideration, everyone will be placed into a new group and a launch date for each group will be put in place. If a new student comes later in the year and wants to register, one of two things will happen. One, if there is an existing group that is open to taking more students, we will contact the group leader and start the process of getting the child plugged in. Or, if all groups are full, we will partner together to recruit more students and a suitable leader to join the team and get one going!

Dynamic High School Ministry
Shoreline’s dynamic High School Ministry strives to offer an environment that guides students toward total commitment to Jesus Christ. High School Students meet throughout the week on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Sunday mornings at 10:00a we all grab some grub & something w/ caffeine & then we all head into main service with our families. Experiencing and participating in worship with the church family at large is a huge piece to a student’s spiritual formation. Then, during 3rd service on Sundays, we offer a High School Youth Gathering at 11:30a in the Garden Room/Rm 1208. This is a gathering for any high school student seeking to understand the basics of Christianity, the Bible, and faith. All high school students are welcome.

What is the Young Adult Ministry?
The Young Adult Ministry is a group for people in the 18-25 age group. Every Sunday night the Young Adult Ministry gathers in the Parkside Room at 7:00 pm for a time to worship, hang out with friends, and learn from God’s Word. Each week, we also break into smaller men’s and women’s growth groups to build closer friendships and discuss God’s Word. Finally, every month the Young Adult Ministry gets together for a fun event.

Our ministry exists to “Help as many people as possible become totally committed to Jesus Christ.” Our Women’s Ministry lives out this mission as we help women: Live with Christ, Live like Christ, Live for Christ. We believe these three goals capture the heart of God for every woman.
Women's Book Club
Do you enjoy Reading? Our book club provides a great opportunity to discuss interesting books with other likeminded women. You are welcome to join us at any time. We meet at homes in the greater Monterey area, monthly from 7:00 – 8:30 PM on the third Thursday of each month (other than in July and December). Come and enjoy fellowship with new friends, great discussions, and light snacks.
A different book is selected for each month’s meeting. Club members are encouraged to recommend books and the group leader selects the books she believes offers the best opportunity for a great discussion. Christian books as well as secular books that provide opportunities to reflect on spiritual matters are selected.
The book club also encourages a book exchange among members. Members are given an opportunity to describe and offer Christian non-fiction books they find particularly compelling for others in the group to borrow, keep, or pass along to others. This provides another opportunity to share good books.
Members do not need to attend every meeting. But when the monthly invitation is received, you are asked to RSVP (yes or no) so that the host can be prepared with enough chairs and refreshments.
Single Moms Gathering
Join us to gain tools and wisdom for single parenting. We will discuss topics such as career counseling, budgets, self-care and having fun! Kids ages 3 years thru 5th grade join us for a meal and then attend Awana from 6:00 – 7:30PM. Childcare is not provided.
