Girl Tribe (for Teenage Girls) - New 6-Month Session opens and begins Sunday, May 19th

After a successful and blessed first six months, Girl Tribe, our monthly group for teen girls, is starting a new session.

Elder Sharon Oxendine has led the girls through a process of self-discovery and spiritual connections, providing exercises each month to invite the girls into a deeper relationship with themselves, each other and Spirit. Through creative activities and reflective rituals, the girls explored who they came here to be.

The group was closed so that the teens could form bonds of trust with each other and is now being opened for another 6-month session. Starting with breakfast at 9 a.m. on Sunday, May 19, the girls will meet each 3rd Sunday of the month. After the first month, they will meet at 11:00, during the 2nd service, for 90 minutes.

If you know any young women aged 13-18 who might want to join, please have them contact Rev. Laura Collins for more information.

Five Basic Unity Principles

• God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.
• I am naturally good because God's Divinity is in me and in everyone.
• I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.
• Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.
• I do and give my best by living the Truth that I know. I make a difference!


Our nursery is a warm, safe, enriching space for infant to toddler little ones.


UniTots: Preschool (Ages 3-5):

These children like to try things for themselves. They may be silly, loud, active and social. The children are learning that God is everywhere, always and loves us unconditionally.

UniKids: Elementary (Ages 6 to 10):

At this age, children are starting to build relationships with other children and adults. They like to move around and are learning to read and write. They understand stories literally rather than in abstract thinking.

Teen Ministry

Uniteens (Ages 11 to 13):

This is a newly forming group.

Y.O.U. (Ages 14 to 18):

They are learning to co-create their own journey in life using Unity Principles to develop a deeper understanding of their daily life. They support and share with each other and connect with regional and international groups.
This program for high school students is the culmination of Unity youth spiritual education. It is a special, peer-driven, Unity-structured support group for teens during the critical high school years.
