First Unity Church offers a full Sunday School for nursery
through high-school-aged children during our 10:30 a.m. service.
We have four classes, for students from age two years to 17
years old. On Sunday mornings, we first do a combined assembly
of all the classes before breaking into groups; the classes
are divided by age and grade.
For our ongoing lesson series, we used lessons learned from
the Harry Potter books. We looked for the Powers within us
and discussed each at length, including: Zeal, Order, Love,
Strength, Faith, Power, Judgment, Imagination, Release, Will,
Life and Understanding.
Currently, we are going through a workbook called "The
God in Me." Children from 6 to 11 can earn a badge or
a pin if they are in scouts. Those who aren't in scouts can
earn a Unity emblem.
Within the last year or so, the Sunday School has done several
service projects. We collected money from our weekly love
offering and from the generous congregants. One Easter, we
sent baby chicks to a third world country so people there
could raise chickens. Currently, we have 250 ponchos to donate
to the homeless.
Visitors are always welcome!
