Youth and Family Ministries


About our Program

Through love, joy and trust we encourage and nurture a sense of belonging and a recognition of wholeness.

Spiritual Education is provided to all our youth as they are an integral part of our ministry.

For children ages 4 through 10 our teachers and assistants teach from a Living Curriculum that nurtures the whole child through play, story, crafts, song and connection.

For Teens, a safe forum for exploration of self and relationships to others is provided, all through a spiritual lens. Please join us for TEEN Sundays! Held the 2nd Sunday of every month, this is a time for some morning celebration and games that encourages us to know each other better.

Uniteens: Our middle schoolers qualify for this group at age 11 and when enrolled in the 6th grade.

Youth of Unity: Our YOUers begin at age 14 and when enrolled in the 9th grade. This is a community unto itself in which bonds are formed that last a lifetime.

For more information, please contact our Director of Youth & Family Ministries, Lisa Petrich, at Youth@UnityofOlympia.org or by phone at 360.943.5757.

“It is truly wonderful to have children and to be truly awake in caring for them, that they may grow up in health and awareness and assurance that they are God’s and all things needful come through them and to them.” — Myrtle Fillmore

Fall Registration

Fall Registration for all families is starting on September 9th and running through the month of September. Please register your child with the Youth and Family Ministries so that we have all contacts, allergies, and preferences on file. This information will allow us to better serve our youth and families. Click here for registration forms.

In addition to registration, children and families are invited to explore the 12 Powers of Unity like never before to know their colors and other symbolizations. Watch for these fliers for more information! Please come!

Additionally, on September 16th we will continue the creative flow with the children by having Ann Chenhall come in and facilitate a clay experience. This is a two part event as the clay process needs drying, so on October 14th, Ann will return to finish the process. Thank you, Ann!

Parents, mark your calendars! As always, I feel so blessed to be a part of the Unity of Olympia community as the YFM Director! If there is anything you’d like to see happening with our children, please feel free to contact me. youth@unityofolympia.org or 360-252-5824 Thank you for your support of our children!
