Sunday Dec. 27th 2020 was the final day for our Sparks program until the pandemic is under control. Sparks will return when the time is right and perfect for everyone involved.
We wish to thank Theresa and Jenny for their amazing leadership and dedication in keeping Sparks alive and thriving even in these challenging times
We invite all children & family members to join us in this fun & exciting journey of celebrating our God selves with other kids by “Creating Community, Celebrating Love & Transforming Lives.”

A Living Curriculum
Unity lessons are based on a living curriculum philosophy. This approach affirms that which is learned is not contained in the guidance materials, but lives within the children and teens themselves.
Myrtle Fillmore, co-founder of Unity was the inspiration for this philosophy. She believed that our mission is, “not to entertain the children, but to draw them out.” The focus of the Living Curriculum, according to Myrtle’s view is one of unfoldment of the soul. This approach honors the wisdom within each individual and uses storytelling and creative experiences to “draw out” the truth they already know.

Unity’s 5 Basic Principles Modified for children
Our youth program is based in Unity principles and teachings, which help young people have a positive experience of life and to believe in their innate divinity, dignity and self-worth. God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.
- I am naturally good because God’s Divinity is in me and in everyone.
- I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.
- Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.
- I do and give my best by living the Truth
- I know. I make a difference.
