Youth and Family Ministry Vision

We are a magnetic Youth and Family ministry program grounded in Truth principles that are connected to everyday life. Our ministry is fueled by Spirit that inspires a community participation explosion which deepens the Spiritual Experience for all.

We nurture the divinity within every child by:

All of our curricula are based on Unity's 5 Basic Principles:

  1. God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.
  2. I am naturally good because God's Divinity is in me and in everyone.
  3. I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.
  4. Through affirmative prayer and meditation I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.
  5. I do and give my best by living the Truth I know. I make a difference!

Middle School, Elementary, Preschool and Nursery

Sunday at 10:00 AM

Youth education is offered during the Sunday service from 10:00-11:00am for nursery, preschool, elementary and middle school age children.

The children begin each Sunday by sitting with their parents in the Chapel. Then, they come forward for the Children's Moment during the service, after which they go downstairs to their classrooms.

The classes meet as follows:
Infants - Wee Wisdom Room
UniTots - Myrtle Room
UniKids - Myrtle Room
UniFriends - Cady Room
UniTeens - Cady Room
Unity provides up to 1 hour of free "aftercare" for our children each Sunday.

Parents are requested to pick up their children from the classroom after enjoying some fellowship time in the lobby after the service.
