Children & Youth

 Rooted In Love  *  Planted in Faith  *  Growing In Service

Unity’s programs for kids and students provide a fun, age-targeted environment where infants through high schoolers can learn about God and grow in their faith. Learn more below—or simply come one Sunday and check us out for yourself!  We have targeted programs for preschool (SEEDS), Elementary (SPROUTS), Middle and High School (BRANCHES) students. Sunday school is held at 9:45-10:30am each week in the Education Building for children ages 3 through 8th grade.  A nursery is also available for newborns thru 3 yr. old at both services. Sunday evening programs are held from 4:00-5:30pm, weekly for our Branches Youth and on Second Sundays for Sprouts. Check out our Facebook page to see photo recaps of our activities.  We ask for safety reasons, please bring your child inside for drop off and pick up in the gathering area each week. We also ask that every child has a Permission Form on file with us in order to participate in our events.

Our Unity Preschool is an independent program that meets Monday- Thursday from late August through May. Visit their website here or call 704-483-5532 to speak with Karen Taylor, our director.

 

Our Mission:

The Children and Youth Program at Unity Presbyterian Church exist to teach, inspire, and unite the children/youth and their families so they may develop their faith through exploring the scriptures, discussions, fellowship, service and connecting with others in their church, community, and world.

Our Vision:

It is our desire at Unity Presbyterian Church to have children and youth become adults who remember the Holy seed which lives inside them in times of joy and trial and therefore responds by sharing the love of God with others.

Our Goals:

On Sunday mornings, children and youth use the Dwell Curriculum to learn the stories of the Bible through storytelling, crafts and interactive exploration. On Sunday evenings, we teach the children how to apply the Bible and Christianity into their lives.  We do this through fellowship, mission, lessons and activities. In 2016, our Christian Formation team created a list of Children and Youth Milestones to provide benchmarks and measurable goals for the spiritual formation of our children and youth, birth to 18. Also, in an effort to create a safe space for our children and youth, the Children and Youth Team along with the session approved and adopted our Safe Church Policy and follow this Sanitation Guide.
