Youth Education

childrenUnity of Vero Beach is a happy place — a Spiritual Family that is full  of love, creativity, generosity, light and peace.

All of these qualities can be seen in the teachers and children in our Youth Education Program. In our Youth Ed Program, we serve children of all ages, from infancy through high school.

We believe that all children of this generation are very special and have come to uplift the consciousness of this planet. As Youth Educators, we take our jobs seriously and have fun with the kids. Our classrooms are spacious and bright; our curriculum is written by professionals and age appropriate.

We offer child care during our Sunday morning worship service from 10—11 a.m. for infants and young children who are not yet mature enough to sit through an hour of structured lessons in our Sunday School Class. We provide a spacious and clean area close to the sanctuary, where youngsters are well-supervised by trained adults. Diane Manera is the leader of this part of our childcare program, and she will be glad to talk to you about your child’s wellbeing while in her care.

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.
5. I do and give my best by living the truth I know. I make a difference.

RESOURCES for PARENTS

Program Overview: Unity Family Matters on Unity Online Radio

Good parenting doesn’t happen by default. It is intentional. It is a decision about who you will be and what you will do in your family life. Your hosts Rev. Jennifer and Ogun Holder want you to experience the “light” side of parenting — realizing your divine identity while raising your children to know they are “the light of God.” Every week we offer insight based upon Unity principles, talk with today’s prominent experts in spiritual parenting, and address your questions and comments from spiritual perspectives.

rosebudCall out the Children…
by Myrtle Fillmore, co-founder of Unity

Our mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be “called out” is to follow the harmonious law of the soul’s unfoldment. Who meddles with the rosebud? What fingers are deft enough to pry open that marvel of folded beauty? We are wise enough to leave it alone to follow the glad law of its own unfolding, but our children! Have we dealt as wisely with these buds of marvelous possibilities? Have we always remembered that they, too, must quicken and unfold through the innate law of their own genius?

The International Youth of Unity (YOU) gathered at Unity Village, Missouri in July 2013, and a group made this video, which interpreted Unity’s teachings in a clever, unique way.
