In each sacred hour, the Youth and Family Ministry welcomes every child and every family into the loving Heart and caring Hands of the Divine, as a radiant expression of the Christ-Light, unfolding in perfect time, guided by their inner presence of Wisdom.

Unikids – Kindergarten through 5th Grade
Unikids meet on Sundays 10:25-11:25 a.m. with a puppet show, creative activities, songs, games, meditation, and prayer to ground their body, mind, heart, and spirit as they enhance their understanding of God in their being and in the world. The group is led by Alice Sparks, with her years of experience as a Unity prayer chaplain, teacher, parent, and grandparent and by Doris Hicks, puppeteer.

The Unity Teen Group gathers on Sundays 10:25-11:25 a.m. with guidance from Jim Drews. Jim brings a deep and practical under-standing of Unity principles and how to help youth develop their spiritual powers in daily life. For example, we can see the power of STRENGTH modeled by spiritual giants such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Gandhi, and the Dalai Lama. The teens share how they have each faced daily situations that require the strength of conviction and compassion. 

UNITY TEEN GROUP PURPOSE STATEMENT: Our purpose in coming together is to share a supportive trust culture focused on mindfulness, expressing our higher self, and experiencing our oneness with the Source of all life through creative exploration and fun activities.


1.      Proof of Vaccination/Booster: Our in-person attendees will need to verify they are fully vaccinated with the recommended dose of the vaccine they have chosen, including at least one booster shot. We ask that you send in this proof or additional proof of booster to Géna at unityval@riousa.com to minimize the document checking on Sunday mornings.

2.     Masking: We appreciate your patience as we continue requiring masks at Unity for everyone’s protection. 

3.     Small Children: Families who have small children too young to be vaccinated may attend on a reservation basis.  Contact Géna at unityval@riousa.com or 541-345-9913, ext. 11 to make a reservation.

Reminder: If you OR anyone in your family has been exposed to the Covid-19 virus, OR if you or anyone in your family is not feeling well, please do not come to the in-person service but rather join us on our livestream service.

We are reviewing this policy on a monthly basis.
