Unitweens

In Unitweens, elementary-aged students (Grades 3-5) explore spiritual principles through stories, acting, puppets, music, dance, sculpture, photography and science.  These lessons based in relevant life issues about self-knowing, using our talents, and understanding our feelings often originate from a Bible or secular story, followed by a guided discussion. The discussion encourages deeper thinking to help the students find personal meaning and direction from the story.

Curriculum Focus:

  • Continue metaphysical exploration of spiritual texts such as the Bible.
  • Deepen practices that may lead to a broader awareness of God, such as prayer and meditation.
  • Discuss how to find happiness and wholeness through life choices.
     

Our Unitweens also create their own theme-based lesson for our Youth-Led Service (a Sunday service created for and presented by the Youth Ministry the Sunday after Easter in the sanctuary for our congregation.)

Teachers:  Jeannine Carey, Mike Maddux, Barbara Robertson, Kate Jordan
