Support for Parents and Families

We now meet in person and families are welcomed! Tables for family groups are available, and special boxes with hands-on materials are provided. This summer we also invite our families to participate in the monthly park walks, picnics, and more.

We begin the 2021/22 school year with the study of the 12 Powers and the intention to bring practical ideas to families: grandparents, parents, children.  In the home! First Sundays in-person at the PCAC in Plymouth is a day for introduction of the Power of the month, special movement and mindfulness and art exercises with Anya, plus a family package to take home. These packages may be ordered via email: friendsofunitymichigan@gmail.com.

Co-founder of Unity, Charles Fillmore, derived insights about the 12 Powers of God in humanity from study of the 12 disciples. Contemplation and exploration of our spiritual capacities and powers can mean conscious, individualized Christ expression. The influence in our personal lives, our families, and our work in the world, is centering, inspiring, and transformative. May this study be ever so meaningful and make a difference in every facet of our lives.

1st Sundays with the Teens!

Rev. Matthew Long serves  as a spiritual mentor present in the lives of our teens, fostering relationship and safety to explore a spiritual way of living during the teen years.  Spirituality is a self/Self discovery experience and this is why having a mentor present, and listening, is such a gift.

Each month the teens are designing and building a service project benefitting youth and adults for years to come.

Can we support you in prayer?

With spirit-based activity or reading suggestions for your little ones? Or perhaps with an affirmation to help you face these challenging days?  Email kathy@friendsofunity.org.

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.

Call 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?
