Youth & Family Ministry

Welcome to Unity of Tampa Youth and Family Ministry


We offer childcare and youth ministry at our 11 a.m. Sunday service for ages one and up. We have a nursery and playroom for our younger friends, and for children age five and up we have exciting, hands-on lessons.

Also tune into our Facebook Live to see the children’s affirmation and message!

NOTE: We are open for Children’s Sunday school in person if you wish to come in! 

Drop off/sign in: In the Sanctuary, check in with Ms. Emma, and then head in to find a seat. At the start of service, the youth will be called down to the front and then walk over to the classroom together.

Pick up/sign out: Pick your child up from the classroom and sign out with Ms. Emma

Unity’s Five Basic Principles for Children

1. God is all good and active in everything, everywhere.

2. I am naturally good because God’s divinity is in me and in everyone.

3. I create my experiences by what I choose to think and what I feel and believe.

4. Through affirmative prayer and meditation, I connect with God and bring out the good in my life.

5. I do and give my best by living the truth I know. I make a difference.

rosebudCall out the children…
by Myrtle Fillmore, co-founder of Unity

Our mission is not to entertain the children, but to call them out. To be always entertained is to be dwarfed and dependent. To be “called out” is to follow the harmonious law of the soul’s unfoldment. Who meddles with the rosebud? What fingers are deft enough to pry open that marvel of folded beauty? We are wise enough to leave it alone to follow the glad law of its own unfolding, but our children! Have we dealt as wisely with these buds of marvelous possibilities? Have we always remembered that they, too, must quicken and unfold through the innate law of their own genius?
