Ministries

Introduction

At Unity Spiritual Center, we acknowledge selfless service as an essential aspect of spiritual practice. Serving in our spiritual community has many rewards and opens unlimited possibilities in the lives of those who serve as well as those who benefit from the service. We are all One and in serving each other, we feed our own souls.

It is a privilege to serve, and the list below describes the many ways that you can serve at Unity Spiritual Center.  Because we know that our community members have many talents, we encourage you to select one or more areas of ministry which best allow you to share your gifts and interests as you serve your spiritual community.  Creative input is vital to the dynamic life of our community, and we encourage all ministry team members to share their suggestions and comments.

Along with attending Sunday services and classes, selfless service will offer you the opportunity to deepen your experience of Unity Spiritual Center as your spiritual home. We are not a spiritual community without selfless servers.   Blessings to you as you embark on the journey of becoming love in action.
