Who We Are

We welcome everyone,

wherever they are on

their spiritual journey.

YEP
Youth Empowerment Program

UATL joyfully hosts YEP every week during our Sunday Celebrations. We seek to empower all children to know their inherent value and belonging through lessons that appeal to a wide range of ages and diverse backgrounds.

Program leaders care for and mentor each child with love, wisdom and compassion. We hold each beloved young one as unique, loved and powerful. We support their growth as they learn to align their consciousness in God.

Youth Empowerment Program leaders understand the principles of Unity. The YEP Coordinator reviews the program with the leaders. The YEP leaders are approved by the council. If you are interested in becoming a leader in the program, please contact us. We are grateful for every YEP leader!

5 Basic Unity Principles brick

5 UNITY
Basic Principles

  1. There is only one Presence and one Power active in the universe and as my life. God the Good.
  2. Our essence is of God; therefore, we are inherently good. This God essence was fully expressed in Jesus, the Christ.
  3. We are co-creators with God, creating reality through thoughts held in mind.
  4. Through prayer and meditation, we align our heart-mind with God. Denials and affirmations are tools we use.
  5. Through thought, words and actions, we live the Truth we know.

Mission & Vision
Prayer Chaplins

Help and Support

We are available for prayer, spiritual counseling, energy work and life coaching. Prayer is about remembering the truth of our being and oneness with the God of our own knowing. From that place we can affirm and bring forth the unlimited power of our GodSelf.

Prayer Chaplains are here to help you access that knowing. Whether you have a need in your heart or you just want to celebrate in gratitude. Every Sunday after Celebration, dedicated Prayer Chaplains are on duty for one-on-one prayer with you.  They are also available for in-home visits, phone calls, and hospital visits.

Call the Unity Office at 530-544-2266 to request any of these blessed prayer services.
