What happens at a service?

Our church is a community of like-minded people who come together to experience their Oneness with God and with each other in an atmosphere of love and acceptance. Our Sunday services include uplifting music led by our choir, or by various guest musicians from time to time. The messages from our minister, or occasional guest speakers, are positive and practical, grounded in the teachings of Jesus Christ, while also drawing from the wisdom of other persons and traditions. Each service also includes information about many valuable upcoming activities occurring in our community.

What happens when I am a first-time visitor?

We welcome you with a guest packet to take home. This packet has material related to our church and to our global church organization, Unity Worldwide Ministries. We invite you to complete a registration card, and we are pleased to offer you a complementary CD of a recent Sunday message from our minister, Rev. Carmen Zappi. We encourage you to sign up to receive regular email announcements that keep you informed of what is happening at our church. No one will call you or stop by your home, unless you specifically request a call or visit. Your contact information will never be shared or sold. We make every attempt to protect your privacy.

What do I wear?

What denomination are you?

Unity is positive, practical Christianity. It teaches the practical application in everyday life of the principles of Truth taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ, as interpreted in the light of contemporary experience and understanding. Unity has established centers of study and worship throughout the world where people study and practice the Unity way of life — a way of life that leads to health, prosperity, happiness and peace of mind.
