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.”

Book Study: More Together Than Alone
Tuesdays starting May 18, 10:30 a.m.-noon
Come join the Tuesday morning book study and contribute to the wonderful sharing that is part of the experience. We will be discussing More Together Than Alone by Mark Nepo.
At once a moving meditation and an empowering guide, More Together Than Alone is a compelling testament to the power of community and why it’s so essential in our lives, now more than ever.
Unity from the Inside Out
Wednesdays, May 19-June 16, 6:30 p.m.
“I longed for something more in my life. I didn’t know what that something was. I kept searching and searching. Then about two years ago a coworker mentioned Unity to me. I decided to explore the Unity movement and was fascinated by its teachings. I found myself learning spiritual principles I could apply to my everyday life. I’ve learned to see others from a place of love rather than judgment. Now that’s life altering.” (Quote from Unity for Today)
If the above quote resonates with you, this class is for you. In five weeks, we will cover topics such as denials and affirmations, the nature of God and the nature of humankind, the power of thought and affirmative prayer.
Registration is required for this membership class, which will be offered on Zoom. Learn more
Winter Warmth for the Homeless
For many of us cold weather just means getting out our winter garments. It also means putting an extra blanket on the bed. However, for our homeless brothers and sisters, that isn’t an option.
It is time for us to make sure they stay warm… put a new or gently used blanket or two, along with new or spare gloves and hats into a bag and drop off at the church. It doesn’t have to be limited to just these… you can add new socks, gently used boots and other items that would keep someone warm. Please leave in bags by the front door. They will be picked up regularly.
Giving Back Week
The Board of Trustees has designated the last week of every month as “Giving Back Week” — a window through which we can express how much we value all that our community is offering to us during this time. Donate now
Action for Justice and Equality
Our Community Responds
Sundays, 12:15-12:45 p.m.
We will meet at the rotary in Windham ((302/202) and participate in a nonviolent witness for Justice and Equality. Our presence will create greater public awareness of nonviolent change. Signs will be provided. Park in the Mercy Quick Care Parking Lot. Stay 10 minutes or however long you choose. Any action no matter how small has a ripple effect and creates a current of consciousness for change.

Coronavirus-Related Postponements & Cancelations

We are monitoring the Coronavirus along with the world and we invite you to join in the following prayer or one of your own choosing.
We know that God is a Love that has no end and a Power that knows no bounds. God’s healing power of Divine Life is restoring, healing, and revitalizing our world in this very moment. We let go of any fears or anxieties, and we affirm that all are safe, healthy, and protected. We bless all those who support us in maintaining vibrant radiant health. We express Divine Life in all we think, say, and do. We bless our global family with radiant health, peace of mind, and abundant love.
