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!


Poetry and Music
Thursdays, 6:30-8 p.m.
New, exciting and fearless program coming to Unity. This is for you if you have ever desired to write songs, stories or poems. Also for you if you already have penned about love, blessings and the doldrums. Whether you play an instrument or not, the mic will be open for you to sing or speak your new composition. The goal is not in the product, but in the self-searching and shedding with no admonition. It will be a loving and nurturing atmosphere. You can write of humor, happy, sad, love or sincere. All classes will be available for a love donation.

Donald Capoldo and Jordan Peterson will host rotating classes.

They include:

June 27 – Song writing. Verse, chorus, bridge and more. Teachings will be focused on the rookies.


Monthly Healing Service
Sunday, July 7, 12:15-1:45 p.m.
The Healing Service is offered on the first Sunday each month to facilitate healing by the flow of energy through the power of grace. Those serving as facilitators of healing know that their services represent their commitment to support the emergence and acceptance of the wholeness that Spirit intends for us by applying Unity’s principles of healing as well as other modalities.

All who attend will have the opportunity to receive a personal time for healing if they choose. Everyone is invited to remain for the whole service, even after receiving a private healing session, as to help support the service.

These services are offered as a gift to our community; no fees are charged. Your love offerings will be gratefully accepted and will support the work of the Healing Ministry and Unity of Greater Portland.

Please invite your family, friends, and others who may benefit from this service to attend. If you are interested in becoming a part of this team, please contact us to find out more about it.
