Here are some ‘tips’ to help you out if this is your first time with us.
Check in begins at 9:45am and ends at 10:10am to allow for classes to begin.
We will ask that you fill out a registration form (see below) on your first visit. Your next check-in will be easy peasy!
For babies younger than 6 months and kiddos that are having a hard time separating, we have a family room that is sound proof but you can still hear the service. It’s at the end of the lobby or just ask when you arrive and we will gladly show you!
Beth Cormier is our wonderful program lead. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.

Our aim in the nursery is to provide a safe, loving space for our youngest members to explore creative play, color, movement and music.
Meditation, yoga, music, crafts, discussion, creative play, games, weekly challenges and group projects are used to explore a common theme throughout all our classes. The Unity principles and practices are introduced in fun, accessible ways that help empower children to apply what they learn in their daily lives.
UNITEENS (Middle School or 11-14 years old) and Y.O.U (High School or 15-18 years old)
The overall aim for the Uniteens and Y.O.U groups is to provide a supportive space for children to grow personally and spiritually as they transition into their teen years. Students are facilitated in “learning-through-being”. Some of the core practices we’re currently working with are: communicating effectively, seeing Spirit/God in each other while respecting individual differences, expressing one’s true self safely, learning how to manage personal energy needs, understanding one’s special gifts, learning how to develop them and how to share them in service to the world.
While we maintain a playful atmosphere and continue to teach through games, laughter and hands-on activities, topics are explored in greater depth and complexity, journaling and meditation are integral, and more active responsibility is encouraged in helping to co-create the curriculum.
Other social, spiritual and service opportunities for our teen groups throughout the year include:
Participation in regional events with other Uniteens/Y.O.U groups
