Third to Fifth Grade Sunday School is based on Unity's Five Principles
Sunday School for our Eight to Ten Year Old Children
"Unity of Fairfax has an excellent children's church program,” says Kathryn Pett, who has two boys in the third-to-fifth grade youth education class. “The curriculum engages my sons in learning and living Unity principles and my kids love the teachers each Sunday, who seem to have an abundance of patience! I'm so grateful to have found Unity of Fairfax.”
Third-to-fifth graders are the largest age group in Unity of Fairfax’s youth education program.
The Association of Unity Churches has built a strong foundation for Sunday classes around Unity’s Five Principles:
God is the only true presence and power in the Universe.
We are individualized expressions of God; our divine potential and spiritual essence are called the Christ.
We create our reality through the thoughts we hold in consciousness.
We become aware of our oneness with God through prayer and meditation.
We must put spiritual truth into practice in order to change our lives.
One Sunday in Spring
One Sunday in Spring 2012, Shannon Plummer brought her guitar to class and engaged the children with music. Using “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands,” Shannon taught the children the song and then led them as they came up with their own words to express the different things that God holds in his hands.
The topic for that Sunday’s lesson was “about the difference between responding from the head or the heart,” says Melanie Paris, who was teaching that day. “The children saw that they used their heads in coming up with new lyrics for the song, but that they experienced the music with their hearts. It was just great.”
The Unity foundational material is taught by a team of dedicated volunteer teachers, who find creative ways to engage and instruct the energetic and curious 8-10 year olds.
