Children, Youth & Family Ministries

At Goleta Presbyterian Church, we believe God has a plan for children, no matter their age. God’s plan begins to unfold with the consistent and faithful teaching of God’s Word. Through our Children, Youth, and Family Ministries, we seek to be a place where children can experience God’s love, compassion, and care. We hope to partner with you to facilitate a meaningful and transformative relationship with Jesus and a desire to follow him for life. Although we are limited in the use of our facilities due to the pandemic, we trust that God is at work and is giving us an opportunity to be innovative and creative with our spaces and resources.

If you would like more details, have questions, or would like to have our worship service and faith formation resources emailed directly to your inbox, please contact Pastor Katie Pazan. Click here to email Katie.
