Youth & Family
All programs are available at Sunday services. For questions contact Brieany Bender.
Nursery: Infant through age 3
Our dedicated staff lovingly cares for babies through age two in a cheerful, fully-equipped nursery. We recommend that toddlers and infants attend nursery for their happiness and in consideration of others in the sanctuary. Pagers are available.
Wonder Bears: Age 3- Kindergarten
Our Youth Education teachers provide a caring, nurturing environment for your children to begin their spiritual journey. Children enjoy an age-appropriate lesson and have plenty of time to build and grow friendships with their fellow Wonder Bears.
Unikids: 1st – 5th grade
A well-founded positive spiritual curriculum designed to meet the spiritual, psychological, emotional, physical and social needs at every age level and help children learn about themselves, and how to create a positive grade school experience for themselves and those around them.
Uniteens: 6th – 8th Grade
Sunday morning gatherings for these pre-teens and teenagers provides spiritual education with an expanded purpose and more developed activities. It includes a spiritual lesson, meditation, joy songs, and sharing time. A loving, supportive social environment is provided in which teens are guided on the path of spiritual development and successful living.
Youth of Unity: High School
Our teen group strives to be a place of unconditional love and acceptance. Our teens lead the group in partnership with our adult sponsors, giving everyone the opportunity to explore their spirituality, build connections, and develop leadership skills. Sunday mornings include singing, sharing, laughing, meditating, and an occasional “walking lesson” to Philz Coffee!
Outside of Sunday, we have many other activities throughout the year, including:
Outings — These have included a variety of fun activities such as beach parties. The monthly teen social nights have also included rock climbing and laser quest.
Service projects — One of the favorites is the annual holiday caroling and gift giving to the community.
Chapter Rallies — Overnight gatherings at the church or at someone’s house are fun, social and spiritual.
International conference — Each summer, hundreds of teens gather at Unity headquarters from various Unity churches, for a week of spiritual growth and connection.
Y.O.U. Sunday — Once a year our teen group organizes Sunday morning church services, including the music, meditation, and the Sunday lesson.
