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!

Spirituality for Turbulent Times
Saturday, January 26, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Through a process of silence and personal sharing in small and large groups, we will clarify and deepen how we are to do our part to create a spiritually transformed society. In the silence we will have the emotional space to be aware of how we are being affected by our social context. Our response will emerge from a deep, personal listening and will be informed by the Way of Jesus, the wisdom of other traditions and our communal sharing. This communal experience will provide support as we live out our commitments in these turbulent times.

Led by Jack Seery. Minimum five participants required. Bring your own lunch. Offered on a generous love offering basis. Please sign up at Unity or contact the office or email Jack.


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!
