SACRED SERVICE MINISTRIES

Being of Sacred Service

In Unity we believe being of loving service is a sacred pathway to experiencing Spirit’s Presence; and being of Sacred Service is essential to one’s spiritual growth.  We believe being of service creates an opening for us to realize the Christ presence within ourselves and others. 

I invite you to look at the opportunities we offer to be of Sacred Service, not only as a way of supporting the ministry, but more as an opportunity to create heaven on earth, here now.  As a spiritual community, we are participants in creation.  Let us create an atmosphere that fosters loving support and fellowship while providing the opportunity to experience an ever-increasing expression of God in our community and within ourselves.

Being of loving service comes with its own perks, such as:

  • Insight into developing our natural gifts and talents.
  • Heightens our awareness of spiritual principle.
  • Empowers nurturing relationships.
  • Giving from love always raises consciousness.
  • Helps us remember who we are, expressions of God/Co-Creators.

Our Spiritual community has said “Yes” to creating a field of love and the opportunity for the Holy Spirit to express Itself through us.  Our intention is to maintain a safe, empowering place for people to remember and experience the truth of who they have come here to be through sacred service and education.
