Ministry of the Month for March 2015: Youth & Family Ministry, led by Julia Meyers
Their guiding affirmation is: “We are enthusiastically present to ignite each child’s truth.”
This ministry cares for our youth and families. It provides a place for babies to be nurtured away from the sanctuary while their parents or guardians are attending services. Older children and teens are offered a rich curriculum from a variety of faith communities includng Unity Worldwide Ministries. Some teens now work in the nursery, and adults are given the training and opportunity to work in a variety of small classrooms. A Christmas play is presented each year with parts for all interested kids. This ministry is dynamic and growing. To inquire about volunteering, contact Julia Meyers at youthed@unityofmadison.org or 608-221-1376 extension 302.
