We behold the Light in you

Welcome to Unity of Greater Portland! We would love to have you come and celebrate a deeper walk in God with us. We are a loving community that celebrates together our love of God, of each other, and all of life. Many who have come here for the first time commonly express, with a sense of awe and gratitude, “I feel like I’ve come home.”

You may know about Unity from the Daily Word, our daily devotional that brings comfort and insight to millions of people around the world, or from Silent Unity, our worldwide prayer ministry.

Unity is a non-denominational Christ-based community and, as its name implies, welcomes and cherishes all people. Our greeting to each other is “Namaste,” meaning “I behold the Light in You.”

What’s Happening Next

Unity of Greater Portland provides many opportunities to connect with friendly people, explore new ideas, celebrate, and grow spiritually. Please check our Calendar for complete information about all the ways we can bless you!

Everyday Sacred with Vaishali Mamgain
Sunday, March 31
Sunday Talk: 10 a.m. Service
Workshop: noon-2 p.m.

In this busy world, many of us feel we don’t have enough time to connect to our inner life or immerse ourselves in the spiritual path. Are there ways we can use everyday happenings to “step into presence,” to “bring everything on to the path?” We will explore how everyday life, with its rewards and challenges, can help us have greater self-compassion, empathy and openness to ambiguity. These qualities in turn can help us deepen our connection to joy, compassion for others and love. Learn more

Experience an unforgettable one-day retreat with Modern Mystic Mary Reed.

“Accidental” mystic Mary Reed’s unfathomable experiences are both an invitation and a road map to remembering the wisdom that is already within us. Her Divine perspectives are startling, yet somehow deeply familiar.

Mystical wisdom is not informative. It is transformative. Learn more

Unity of Greater Portland’s Storm Policy

winter roadIf the local status is categorized as “winter storm watch,” a decision will be made by 9 p.m. the night before any scheduled activities by the Board President and Minister. As soon as the local status becomes “winter storm warning,” Unity of Greater Portland automatically closes. This cancellation applies to all activities at the ministry – Sunday and weekday events.

Definitions: A storm watch means that the weather has the chance of turning into a storm. A storm warning means that the weather has become potentially dangerous and is headed our way.

Our policy is caution: We always want you to be safe in your travels. If you have questions about if a class or service will be held due to weather conditions, you may call 207-893-1233 and press #4 for storm cancellation information. Of course, even if a class or service is being held, the weather may be different in your location. Please use your own best judgment – safety first!
