Groups for Adults

MUMS — Mothers Uniting Mothers — is a community of moms of all faiths, all beliefs, and all walks of life. Our intention is to create a safe, welcoming environment for all mothers. Our topics and programs are geared towards mothers of young children, but all moms of all ages and stages are welcome. We meet every other Wednesday morning from 9:00 until 11:30 at Los Altos UMC. Childcare is provided. This is a time for a much needed break to enjoy wonderful speakers, small group discussion, and refreshments. For more information, visit their website at

Working Moms in Fellowship meets every other Wednesday from 7:30–9:00pm for some get-real fellowship, bible study and serious fun as we navigate our lives as working moms! Our kids range in age from baby to college age and we've heard it all so come and JOIN US, wherever you are in your journey! For more information, email Laura (

GroupLife is about creating and forming real relationships with God and each other by building community within small groups of 6-12 people. Groups meet regularly in a host's home for topical discussions related to everyday life. Group members encourage, support and care for each other to deepen their faith and live out their calling in the world. Learn more about GroupLife

Activities for Children

Sunday School is held every Sunday at 10:00am. Preschool and Kindergarten classes meet in the Children's Center to jump in the "Deep Blue" to find who God is. 1st–5th graders have Sunday school classes for small-group activities and discussions (1st–3rd grades in Room 9, 4th/5th grades in Room 8). Donovan's Door classroom welcomes special needs children with one-on-one teachers for the Sunday School hour.

LAUMC's children's choir, Creekside Kids Choir, is for 1st–5th graders and meets every Wednesday at 5:00–6:00pm, and occasionally performs in worship services and special concerts.

Summertime is full of fun activities for children and families! LAUMC offers a popular Vacation Bible School every June for ages 3.5 through 6th grade.
