Who we are:
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 of 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.
What We Believe:
Unity's 5 Basic Principles<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" />
1. God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.
2. I am naturally good because God's Divinity is in me and in everyone.
3. I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.
4. Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.
