Becoming a Member of Unity of Citrus
Becoming a Member of Unity of Citrus indicates a definite, considered choice to be an integral part of the Unity spiritual community.
It represents a commitment to the manifestation of Unity principles in one’s life, and a commitment to share in the joys and responsibilities of co-creating and maintaining this on-going Unity ministry.
We offer a Membership Class, Unity Basics, taught by a Licensed Unity Teacher, twice a year so that you can explore what it means to step into membership, discuss the Vision and Mission, review church governance, and join together in a sacred circle of sharing what membership in this ministry means to you. Attendance is required. New Member Induction occurs the following Sunday during service.
