Our Youth Ministry honors each child as the perfect expression of God! Youth Ministry Director, Miranda Griffin, provides Unity education for children between the ages of three and eleven during the Sunday Celebration Service
from 10:30 am to 11:30 am.
Sunday lessons focus on reinforcing the idea that God is with us, around us, everywhere present and that we are loved unconditionally. We also begin to establish a basic understanding of the Bible and how the stories in the Bible reflect Unity principles. Other sacred writings and contemporary children’s stories are also used. The children are encouraged to connect with their inner wisdom and to live the Truth they know.
Parents with children over the age of eleven are encouraged to sit with their children in the Sanctuary. Families with children under three may also use the Unity Family Room where you can see and hear the service and the children can move around and play more freely.
Our goal, as our co-founder Myrtle Fillmore stated is:
"To create an environment where we do not entertain our youth but to call them out. To be 'called out' is to follow the harmonius law of the souls unfoldment.
Who meddles with the rosebud? What fingers are deft enough to pry opne that marvel of folded beauty? We are wise enough to leave it alone to follow the glad law of it's own unfolding, but our youth! Have we dealt as wisely with these buds of marvelous possibilities? Have we always remebered that they too, must quicken and unfold through the innate law of their own genius?"
