Sunday Soul School

Soul School for Kids and Teens meets every Sunday at 10:25 am, during the adult worship service. All children, infants through high school, are welcome to join us at any time. On the 3rd Sunday of each month, we also have a special brief lesson for our youth and congregation in the sanctuary. Once a year, Youth Ministry creates a Sunday service for the congregation in which all students and teachers take part.


Mission

Unity on the North Shore’s Youth and Family Ministry is a safe, supportive and empowering environment in which children and their families joyfully learn and apply Unity principles to create positive change in their lives and in the world.


Philosophy

The spiritual education of our youth and their families is an important part of the ministry of Unity on the North Shore. We create an affirming environment that fosters positive self-image, personal responsibility, and unconditional love and acceptance. We empower children to fulfill their divine potential; guide children in spiritual connection through meditation and prayer; and invite children to experience a loving God.

SACRED SAFETY

The comfort and safety of our children and teens is of utmost importance to Unity on the North Shore.  Our Sacred Safety policies include:

  • All Youth Ministry teachers undergo annual criminal background checks.
  • All Youth Ministry teachers undergo training in Sacred Safety practices including classroom management, heart agreements, registration and permission forms, teacher decorum, emergency evacuation procedures, and transportation safety.
  • Annual registration forms are completed for all children and teens before they can attend Soul School.  These forms keep us up-to-date with the most current information regarding you and your child, and alert us to the changing needs or medical conditions a child or teen may have.
  • All children from birth through 8th grade must be signed in and out of the Soul School program each Sunday by the same parent or designated responsible adult.  Parents are asked to pick up their children in the Garden Room promptly after service.  9th – 12th grade students may sign themselves in and out each Sunday.
