What denomination is Unity?
Unity East is trans-denominational. The ideal of Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, co-founders of Unity over 125 years ago, was to provide a safe haven for persons of every age and condition who desire to dedicate time to their own spiritual growth. To those seeking spiritual growth, Unity offers a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity. It is viewed as a movement in consciousness, rather than as a religion.
Unity is without creed or dogma, has no formal liturgy and recognizes no sacrament. Unity is where we ask questions, not give answers. We believe the answer to every challenge lies within the heart and mind of each individual. Our emphasis is not on the demands of a personality, institution or religion…it is on spiritual transformation.
Unity centers and churches represent diversity of race, color, gender, age, creed, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical disability and sexual orientation.
What do I wear?
Unity East is a welcoming place with a casual environment where you can come as you are. Come in whatever makes you comfortable – whether it’s jeans, business wear, or that favorite Sunday outfit. You are welcome here!
I have children. Do you have activities for them during your services?
Starting at 10:30 a.m., our Youth Celebration Center offers Sunday School for those of elementary school age.
Feel free to approach any of our leaders with questions or concerns, as they are here to serve you.
I have a disability. Are you ready for me?
We have parking spaces in the back of the church dedicated for handicapped parking. The accessible entrance is in the front of the church, accessible by sidewalk on the east side of the church.
Do you have any materials that I can take home to read?
We have a special packet of information for you, our first-time visitor. During the service you will be asked to raise your hand and be acknowledged, if you are willing. We will present you with a welcome packet with relevant information. We want your first visit to be a comfortable, loving experience. Our Bookstore offers many books to support you in your spiritual journey.
How do I get involved?
There are many ways to get connected with Unity East’s spiritual family. Our Discover Unity class is a wonderful and comprehensive way to get introduced to Unity’s principles, philosophies and history. Taking this class is also the path to membership at Unity East. You might also be interested in taking any of our other classes or workshops; please check Services, Music & Events to find out what’s happening this month. Throughout the year, we have small group study groups, as well. Volunteer opportunities within one of our church teams abound.
