With Covid, we have switched to a zoom format. We meet every Sunday at 10 am. Zoom information is shared with families every week. We also post the lesson on Unity of Palm Harbor Facebook page. Please email Brigitte at firstname.lastname@example.org to join us on zoom.
We email the lesson to all the families, we have a zoom lesson every Sunday using online worksheets, “Gonoodle,” Kahoot, Big Life Journal, videos, meditations, and prayers. In addition, a care package is sent out once a month with craft materials and worksheets for families. View sample pages from our lessons here.
We are staying connected, we are being supported, we are sharing love. Blessings, Brigitte
Monthly Youth Packet
Youth Ministry in Action
We are drawing our changeless spirit and practicing building on a strong foundation.
Youth Ministry Coordinator
Ms. Brigitte Bernhardt has been coordinating the Youth Ministry
program since June 1996. She has one son, Shaun. She became
interested in the spiritual education of her child and wanted to be
an integral part of what he was learning. “I wanted our spiritual life
to be a part of our daily life”.
During her many years as youth director, she has implemented
many Unity curricula including the five (5) principles, the twelve (12) powers, wisdom tales, Jesus’ teachings, the wonder years living curriculum, choices and consequences, fair play, navigating through change and the awakened classroom. Recently on zoom, we have been learning digital lessons. We are still including prayer, meditation, movement, games, some creative expression, sharing and exploring questions. The goal is that we learn to connect with the God or Divine Presence of our understanding and that we are seen and heard as the spiritual beings we have come here to express. During Covid, lessons are also being mailed out to families by email.
Brigitte also worked at the Safety Harbor Montessori Academy in Clearwater for 20 years. She taught ages 3-6 for most of those years and 1-3 grade for a while. Brigitte earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Recreation Therapy. She has continuously expanded her educational knowledge through Montessori conferences, Unity conferences, zoom training, and workshops addressing the development of children dealing with the stresses of our world today. Brigitte also loves yoga, hiking, camping, biking, and swimming. “ Being centered is the best way to relate and facilitate self-growth. Using yoga with children works.”
