Welcome to the LightForce webpage.  LightForce is our preteen ministry at San Clemente Presbyterian Church.

The Preteen Ministry of San Clemente Presbyterian Church is a place for 5th and 6th grade students to belong to a community of Christian peers from different schools and backgrounds.  Preteen Ministry is designed to grow these students in their knowledge of the Triune God, the body of Christ and the scriptures.  Students actively participating in this program will have many opportunities to participate in service to our church and community.

We have a dynamic program ranging from mid-week meetings to monthly service projects.  Don't forget to check out our online trivia questions at the bottom of the page.  I invite you to see what we have to offer and to please contact me if you have any questions.  God bless!

LightForce Sundays

Sunday School – LightForce Style:
We study the bible in a discussion format. We meet every Sunday at 9:30 and 11:00 in Room 205. For the 11:00 service, students worship with their parents and are dismissed mid-service. All incoming 5th graders should join the 4th grade class this Sunday (we'll come and get you). 

Thoughts on Preteen Ministry

We believe that a preteen’s needs are threefold: foundational knowledge, positive experiences and consistent relationships.   Preteen ministers need to give real, tangible answers to students.  I have found that it is most effective for students to experience the freedom to question.  I also believe that for the most part, students are cognitively able to grasp theological concepts and doctrine.  Preteens also need positive experiences.  The key is to take these “fun” moments and give them spiritual significance. Preteens also have the need for consistent relationships in their lives.  Children’s ministers need strong teams with committed leaders to love, encourage, supervise and teach.  The students most dramatically affected by the preteen ministry at our church are those who have connected with their small group leaders and have made friends at church.  We value knowing the names of each of our students and showing a genuine, active interest in their lives.
