“Our mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out.

To be ‘called out’ is to follow the harmonious law of the soul’s unfoldment.” ~ Myrtle Fillmore


Welcome to Youth and Family Ministry where we cultivate learning and spiritual growth through a creative learning environment and a passionate team of teachers. Unity recognizes that there are many expressions of family life. All are welcome. Unity creates an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility and unconditional love and acceptance. Unity:

  • Beholds all children as whole and perfect expressions of God.
  • Empowers children to fulfill their divine potential.
  • Teaches children to meditate and pray.
  • Invites children to experience a loving God.

Indeed, sharing a child’s spiritual path is an honor & privilege which we embrace with humility. We welcome all children into an experience filled with compassion ~ surrounded with enthusiasm ~ encouragement to express their divine nature ~ recognizing and honoring each one in their uniqueness ~ creating a safe space to live, move and have their being centered in God. We use a variety of Unity based curriculum enhanced with exciting, expressive, engaging activities woven into each lesson. With gratitude, we look forward to serving children & their families in these spiritual activities. Unity provides a strong spiritual foundation for children's lives.

Our Sunday morning classes are inclusive and are grouped by age and grade so that our young Truth students can study and learn (as well as teach and inspire) in an environment that includes age-appropriate lessons, activities, and peers. Our teachers are highly trained and dedicated and teach in teams of two per class.There is a unique and personalized experience for kids of all ages.
 


Theme in The Children’s Garden for 2019 - 2020 : Be the Change

 In the Children’s Garden, we cultivate the harmonious law of the soul’s unfolding within our Unity Youth. “Who meddles with the rosebud? What fingers are deft enough to pry open that marvel of folded beauty? We are wise enough to leave it alone to follow the glad law of its own unfolding…but our children! Have we dealt as wisely with these buds of marvelous possibilities?  …they, too, must quicken and unfold through the innate law of their own genius.” Myrtle Fillmore, Co-founder of Unity
In the Children’s Garden, Consciousness refers to an alert cognitive state in which you are aware of yourself and your situation, an “inner knowing”. “Divine ideas must be incorporated into our consciousness before they can mean anything to us….a mind filled with God thoughts such as power, strength (12 powers), generosity, purity, optimism…” Chas. Fillmore, Co-founder of Unity
 
We offer a complete program serving newborn through High School.
 
We invite you and your children to come be a part of a lively and vibrant experience!!
 

Purpose Statement

We provide a safe and loving environment where youth and all people are honored and embraced as God expressing uniquely as each person.

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”  ~ Galatians 5:22
