Youth & Family Ministry

There is a special children's program offered at 10:30 am on the 4th Sunday of every month, September through May. 

On other Sundays, our children are welcomed into our Sunday Celebration Service.  There are quiet activity bags and TV tray tables available to engage the children as they sit with their responsible adult during the service.

The YFM (Youth & Family Ministry) meets in conjunction with SGAD (Spiritual Growth and Development) on the first Sunday of the month, following the Sunday Service.

 

Currently Unity Spiritual Center of Lansing does not have many youth in its congregation.  Our YFM Coordinater, Casey Miller, is open to exploring other options to serving our youth and families.

If you have some ideas and would like to become involved with Youth and Family Ministry, contact Casey Miller  mill2634@msu.edu

We are also exploring how we can serve the youth in our neighborhood.

Stay tuned for further developments.
