How can I learn more about Unity and get to know others?

Join us after the service in our bookstore.  Here you can get connected to our spiritual community and enjoy refreshments and a cup of coffee or tea. Our welcome ambassadors are available on Sunday mornings to show you around and answer your questions.

What should I wear?

We want you to feel comfortable joining us for Sunday service.  Feel free to wear whatever you like from jeans to business wear.

Where do I park?

We’re blessed to have abundant parking on our 24-acres site.  Designated first-time visitor parking is conveniently located close to the main entrance. If you or someone you are with is elderly or handicapped, please use our handicap parking with easy access, located outside the bookstore.

What can you offer my children?

Nan in Youth EdWhile you enjoy a service designed for you, your children will enjoy an experience designed just for them in the nursery or their classroom. A nursery for infants and toddlers through age three, and youth classrooms for ages four through fifth grade are located in the Children’s House, the bright yellow building located near our main building. All 6th – 12th grade youth classrooms are located in the main building. We have a Uniteen group, designed for students 6th-8th grades and a high school aged group, Y.O.U., for students 9th-12th grades. All Youth Education classes meet at 10:30 a.m.

All parents/guardians are required to have a registration form on file. Please arrive at least 10-15 minutes before service starts to allow yourself some extra time for which to check in your children if it is your first visit. All of our children are welcome to begin their Sunday school experience with their parents/guardians in the Sanctuary.  Near the beginning of the service, the children share a blessing with the congregation and then are escorted to their classrooms or the nursery.
