Youth & Family Ministry Vision Statement
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, Living Curriculum, meditation and service, we practice Unity Truth principles as a way of life.
