We behold the Light in you
Welcome to Unity Center for Spiritual Growth! 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.”

Advent Messages and Special Services
While the outside world is embroiled in the trappings of the holiday season, each week at Unity Center for Spiritual Growth, we will turn inward to find rich and deep transformative meaning in one of the most well-known and oft-cited prayers in human history – the prayer taught by the man whose birth we celebrate this month.
This prayer, known as “The Lord’s Prayer” or “The Our Father,” has gone through many translations and interpretations. Be sure to be with us to receive a full spectrum of the wisdom found in this prayer of the Master, and then be with us on Christmas Eve day and New Years Eve day for two incredibly special services.
Sunday Services at 10 a.m.
November 29 — “Oh Thou, From Whom the Breath of Life Comes”
December 6 — “O Birther! Father – Mother of the Cosmos”
December 13 — “Our Father, Which Art in Heaven”

December 27 — Our Personal Prayer
