New to Unity Minneapolis? Welcome!
Our Sunday morning experience is an incredible opportunity for children and teens to explore and nurture the spiritual aspects of their lives. Unity classes are designed for youth to learn, experience and integrate Unity’s Five Principles at age-appropriate levels. Our intent is that youth at Unity Minneapolis:
- develop a practice of meditation and prayer
- explore the many paths to Spirit
- and experience a loving and FUN environment where they feel their connectedness to God and to each other.
Unity is blessed with FABULOUS, Fully-vetted volunteers who facilitate the above process, supported by Youth and Family Ministry staff.
Our Youth Education programs are customized for kids from infant through high-school:
- Nursery: 9:30-10:30 AM in-person & 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM in-person
- Young Emerging Spirits (Y.E.S.): meet at 11:30 AM in-person
- Uniteens & Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.): 11:30 AM in-person
Please visit our YFM Virtual Events Page for meeting information.
We’d love to hear from you! Please contact Youth and Family Ministry Director, Cassidy Meeks using the form.
We aim to provide practical application of spiritual principles relevant to children and youth’s lives.
Our youth education programs use Unity Worldwide Ministries curriculum as well as original
lessons created by our youth ministry staff. Hands-on experiences influenced by the theory of
multiple intelligences help connect each person to the Divine within them through play, music,
science, games, art, Bible stories, storybooks, affirmations, meditation and prayer.
What our parents have to say about our programs:
Safe & Loving Environment
- We are committed to sacred safety. Part of our approach is by vetting all potential volunteers, which includes a background check and calling references. Volunteers work in teams of two, usually one person leading and the other assisting.
- Volunteers go through orientation and have ongoing opportunities to further their knowledge
and skills in working with kids and youth. We currently have 17 volunteers and are looking for more!
- We aim to respond to moments of conflict using conscious discipline, a framework and
consciousness that moves away from punitive right/wrong thinking to a more holistic
approach that focuses on mindfulness and recognizes the dignity of each person.
- We enjoy fostering meaningful relationships between kids and volunteers/staff, between
parents/guardians, and between parents and volunteers and we do this through events like a
fall book study for parents/caregivers and YFM volunteers as well as a youth birthday card
