Ministry with Children and Youth: Fellowship
Families will find a rich landscape of social opportunities to create bonds between children and between families.
Join the Unity Children’s Choir
All children in grades 1-5 are warmly invited to join in the fun of making music with the Unity Children’s Choir. The choir meets from 10:15-11:00 a.m. each Sunday (from September through May) in the Robbins Parlor at Unity Church. Children’s choir rehearsal activities are focused on hands-on music making for all of the children. In addition to singing the children experience music through movement, games, playing instruments and learning about the elements of music. The Children’s Choir sings at Unity Church services approximately one Sunday each month. Additional special Children’s Choir traditions include a spring community outreach nursing home concert, performing at the Unity holiday concert, an intergenerational singing experience and many opportunities for the singers to have fun socializing together. For more information, contact Kathleen Radspinner, Unity Children’s Choir Director, email@example.com
Wellspring Wednesdays provide an opportunity for Unity friends and family to share a meal and good conversation together. Following Wellspring Wednesday intergenerational chapel service, children play board games and make crafts together, forming church friendships that can last through the years.

Children's Musical: Grades 6, 7, and 8
This entire production—from the script to the music to the choreography—is original material created for Unity’s 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. Participation in the Children's Musical has been a right of passage for many of Unity's youth. Auditions are held the first Sunday in January and performances are the first weekend in March (March 5, 6, 7, 2020).
The Christmas Pageant
We invite our youth from kindergarten through 12th grade to join the Christmas Pageant cast! This is a honored tradition at Unity Church that you don’t want to miss! To bring this story to life, we need youth in grades 3-6 to make up our Children’s Choir; our K-2nd grade children to bring us a multitude of the Heavenly Hosts, Pages and Little Shepherds; and our 7-12 graders to bring us a flock of Shepherds, Acolytes, Kings, and Angels to bring this story to life. The Christmas Pageant services are held on Christmas Eve at 4:00 and 5:30 p.m. and all are welcome! Please contact Kelley Loughrey, pageant director, at email@example.com with questions.
