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.”

Guest Speaker Ron Chelberg, M.D.
Sunday, November 3, 10 a.m. Service
In Ron’s memoir, When God Calls, Say “Yes!”, he shares his first childhood memories of mystical events. Later in life, once he was in medical school, these mystical events became more frequent. He started to see and hear Christ in the ER where he worked as a physician, and there He guided him to help save many people’s lives.

Dr. Chelberg has been practicing different forms of General Internal Medicine for the past 28 years. During that time, he saw over 70,000 patients. He spent 14 years practicing emergency room medicine and was the medical director for several years at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Bangor, Maine. Learn more


Being with Death: How Death and Dying Can Profoundly Change the Way We Live
Thursdays, October 3-November 14, 6:30-8 p.m.
NOTE: NO CLASS October 31
The opportunity to be involved with death in an intimate and personal way is limited in our present American culture. The medical system, funeral industry and our own denial of death have impacted our ability to take death into our own hands and hearts.

This course is designed to help us cultivate a relationship with – and better understand the full range of choices we have when it comes to – death. Learn more

Marie Joseph Spiritual Center

Silent Retreat with Jack Seery
November 10-12 or November 10-13
Is it time for you to go deeper into the Mystery?
Silence is the way into a deeper oneness with yourself and that which is the Source of all that is. It is the path to a refreshment of the soul as you experience the Presence in the inner depth of yourself and the beauty of nature that surrounds you. This has been a transformative experience for many of us. Learn more
