Teachers and Children

Unity recognizes the many expressions of family life. All are welcome. We create an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility, and unconditional love and acceptance.

 

9:30-10:15 am on Sundays. We invite adults who attend this hour to bring their children to the Unity Classroom downstairs and sign them in before going to their own classes. The children will remain together until either their parents pick them up before the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service or the YFM staff escorts them upstairs to the service. Children and youth meet for activities such as a Sacred Circle, Storytelling, Discussion, Creative Experience, and Sharing.

Embedded in these activities are lessons on spiritual topics based on the Five Basic Principles of Unity. Then, they share a snack before closing. The children will remain together until either their parents pick them up before the 10:30 a.m. Sunday service, or the YFM staff escorts them upstairs to the service.

10:30 -11:30 am on Sundays. Children and adults begin the Sunday service together. Early in the service, children are invited to gather for an interactive Children’s Moment, led by a member of our Unity family. After the Children’s Moment, children age 10 and under are escorted to the Unity classroom for Children’s Spiritual Enrichment Experience. At the end of the Sunday service, the children will either rejoin the adults for the Peace Circle or parents can pick-up their children in the classroom.

Childcare is available on Sundays from 10:30-11:30 am (during the Sunday service).
