High School: 9th through 12th Grade
Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) serves teens, 9th to 12 grade, and meets in our lower level Y.O.U. room each Sunday at 11:00AM. We love visitors and new members – you are welcome here!
teen ministry strives to be a place of unconditional love and
acceptance. Our teens lead the group in partnership with our adult
sponsors, giving everyone the opportunity to explore their spirituality,
build connections, and develop leadership skills. We offer Movie Afternoons, Lock-ins, and Regional Retreat along
with many opportunities to participate in service projects, fundraisers,
and other fun activities.
The Y.O.U. meet every Sunday at 11:00 in the teen room and have many social and service activities throughout the year. They also connect with teens around the Northwest for retreats, lock ins and other events.
Y.O.U.'s Three-Fold Focus
A spiritual lesson is offered weekly to assist the Y.O.U.ers in the understanding of spiritual laws and practical application in their daily life. Time is spent in prayer, meditation and connecting with the Christ within. Weekend retreats and rallies are offered to allow more intensive exploration of their divine nature.
Each Y.O.U. chapter organizes and implements a wide variety of service projects depending on the needs of the group, church and community.
Y.O.U.ers believe in celebrating life and enjoy doing it together. The chapter’s social activities strengthen relationships and provide an opportunity to practice spiritual principles as they apply to daily life. Nurturing and supportive relationships develop among the teens and with their adult sponsors. Y.O.U. is a loving place to build friendships and interact with others of like mind.
Y.O.U.ers take on leadership roles with the support of their adult sponsors. Our teens experience leading prayer and meditation, organizing fundraisers, service projects, lock-ins and social events. Quarterly Heart Talks provide peer support and teach respectful communication skills. The teens attend spiritually based regional and international events sponsored by Unity Worldwide Ministries.
Y.O.U. Sponsor Team
Sponsors guide and encourage spiritual growth and create a positive atmosphere of acceptance and love in which the YOUers can share and grow.
