We nurture the innate divinity within our children and youth. We offer age-appropriate learning and exploring spirituality through various methods – technology, art, music, and fun! As a spiritual youth community, we provide a safe place of love and acceptance where our children and teens experience the recognition of their oneness with God. Our purpose is to create programs and experiences that invite the Divine potential in each individual to grow and expand. Using the tools of affirmative prayer, a New Thought Curriculum, meditation and service, we practice Unity Truth principles as a way of life. 

Our teachers, leaders, sponsors and assistants are all background screened. 


Statement of Diversity

We believe that families can take many shapes and forms.  Therefore, we recognize the importance of serving all families in spiritually and emotionally caring ways.  We strive for our ministries, publications, and programs to be free of discrimination on any basis. We honor all kinds of families!

Unity’s 5 Basic Principles

GOD IS - There is One presence and power. God is the source and creator of all, All-That-Is.


I AM - We are all spiritual beings, expressions of the One; God.  The spirit of God lives within every person; therefore, all people are inherently divine and therefore “good”. 


I THINK - Our thoughts give shape to our life experience. “Thoughts held in mind produce after their kind.”


I PRAY  - There is power in affirmative prayer, which we believe increases our awareness of God and our true nature. 


I LIVE - Knowledge of these spiritual principles is not enough.  We live them to experience them.
