We provide a nurturing, safe environment for our children to start their spiritual journey and develop friendships throughout. During our time together, our youth are encouraged to experience God, learn about the world around them, and discover the sacred in everyday life.
We use discussions, stories, music, meditation, movement, art, and other activities to engage our youth and explore Truth principles. The lessons are fun and age-appropriate, and provide lively, creative experiences directly related to the discussion of Unity concepts to help anchor their learning.
Youth ministry programs are available for children and teens, infant to 18 years, during the 10:30 am Service only. We ask you to drop your children off between 10:15 and 10:30 am so we can greet you and your children.
"I appreciate the opportunity to work in such a loving spiritual community and we look forward to seeing you in our ministry and honoring the unique expression of God that you are."
-Carolyn Dunoon, Youth & Family Director
Our Commitment to Youth Ministry
Our ministry is a safe and sacred place that honors who the children and teens are and who they have come to be throughout their lives up to this point.
It is designed to 'draw forth' the Truth, most prominently through experiences, story telling and creative expression.
Our purpose is to create programs and experiences that invite the Divine potential in each child to grow and expand.
"Each lesson relates to an issue in a person's life and seeks to facilitate an experience of God connected to their life." (UWM).
Here at Unity Des Plaines we follow A Living Curriculum philosophy, which was developed by the Unity Worldwide Ministries.
