Youth & Family

Youth Director

Britt Blakey Ohana, Director of Youth & Family Ministry

At Christ Church Unity, we nurture the divinity within every child by:

*Providing spiritual education based on Unity Truth principles

*Empowering our children and teens to use these Truth principles in their daily lives as they learn and grow

*Creating a spiritual community with our kids, teens, and families that is safe, supportive, and fun!

Our Sunday School Program takes place on Sunday mornings in Fellowship Hall. Sunday School starts at 11 am, concurrent with the 11:00 adult services.  Prior to the end of each service, the children and teens join the adults in the Sanctuary for a special blessing acknowledging their contributions to our spiritual family, followed by the Prayer for Protection and the Peace Song.

Special Programs (youth service, service projects, outings and participation in Regional events) are planned regularly throughout the year to provide outlets for spiritual enrichment, youth development, play, and community building.

Our Family Ministry provides support to families by organizing events and workshops to strengthen the connection of the family unit and to bring families together in fellowship. Scroll down for more details

Fantastic 4s & 5s (4th and 5th grades)

The Fantastic 4s & 5s have a unique curriculum that is a hybrid of that of the Unity Kids and the Uniteens; the Fantastic 4s & 5s still need the foundation of the storytelling and craft experiences, and they are also ready for a more discussion-based experience, where they can connect with their peers in a deeper, more meaningful way. 11:00 am

Uniteens (6th - 8th grades)

The Uniteens at CCU participate in lessons specifically for tweens and young teens focusing on belonging,  self-image, and making a difference. Their learning is enhanced by service opportunities and fun activities outside of Sunday church time. The Uniteens have the opportunity to attend the Southeast Regional Uniteen Retreat that facilitates spiritual exploration, held in February and October each year. 11:00 am

Y.O.U. (9th - 12th grades)

Youth of Unity (Y.O.U.) is an active teen ministry for high school students. Y.O.U. provides teens the opportunity to explore and discover spiritual truths and learn how these truths relate to their lives. Y.O.U. teens have the opportunity to attend the Southeast Regional Y.O.U. Rallies in the spring and the fall, in addition to the Summer Connection and the Leadership Retreat. 11:00 am.
