Ask your children and they will tell you they have fun at church on Sunday. We weave lessons in and through experiences of fun by the use of stories, music, dance, games, activities and shared prayer. From this centering foundation we are rebuilding our youth and family ministry program to serve the needs of those who are seeking to make our church their spiritual home who are with us and now and those on the way to us.
Youth Program Sundays … at 10:00 am:
Unity recognizes that there are many expressions of family life. All are welcome. Unity Church of El Cajon enjoys a Multigenerational Youth and Family Ministry that gratefully provides an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility, with unconditional love and acceptance.
Each Sunday we are ready for children and teens actively exploring Unity principles and the teachings of Jesus together in a safe, fun and interactive environment. Lessons are experiential and active honoring the variety of learning styles and differing levels of understanding. We are so blessed with nurturing, trained and experienced teachers and volunteers.
Through love, joy and trust we encourage and nurture a sense of belonging and a recognition of wholeness.
Mandala Coloring--a Creative Tool for Stress Relief and Peace Keeping
One of the creative focusing tools we use helps us discover how to relieve stress and keep our peace is in coloring Mandalas from books for all ages. We also took our chalk and templetes and create Mandalas outside our classroom. Mandala templates vary offer subjects for boys as well as girls. There are templates for young fingers and more involved ones for teens and teachers. These are used a a spiritual practice at the time we come together, and as a starting point for meditation in class. At home they can act likewise and also help with stress relief for teens in dealing with relationships and school.
