Hello up there! Can you hear us from the basement?

Recently, a charming and precocious five-year-old, first time visitor, to our Unity’s Youth Education area turned to her Mom and asked, “Why do all the churches we visit keep the kids in the basement?”

Hmmm is that true? It really doesn’t matter. It is, as we are taught in Unity, true for her. It isn’t true for Unity of Vancouver that we always keep our children ‘downstairs.’ Our ministry has a rich history of including our children “upstairs”.

Every Sunday they rush upstairs to join in the Peace Song and ring the mysterious bell in our Church Tower at the end of service. Our Minister, Reverend Bernadette, also greets the children in their space every Sunday before service and invites children and Teens to be part of the service on special Sundays and holidays. She plans Family Services and frequently asks our Youth to share their talents during Sunday services. At the present time, our Youth Education classes are learning the Prayer of Faith to share with those not in the basement!

We are bounding into Spring in March and April and we cannot wait to be upstairs! AND we are looking forward to Easter on April 1st and that is no joke. March and April are powerful months. We see the strength and tenderness of young life blooming all around us. The Spiritual Powers of Strength and Wisdom are celebrated during March and April.

Children’s Easter Celebration - April 1, 2018
Our youth Education classes will celebrate during regular Sunday class time with music, crafts, games and an Easter Egg Hunt. We always have extra children for this fun event so please tell Katherine or Phaedra at least one week in advance, if you are bringing children or extra children. We want to have enough eggs and Easter games and surprises for everyone.
